QPS Grid Calculator
You can enter the base price you are being quoted below to see how the price varies for the different grades of animal. This QPS grid applies to steers and heifers.
Where factories agree to pay under-16-month bulls on the grid, these animals will continue to receive the €0.12 in-spec bonus for animals grading O= to U+ and have a fat score 2+ to 4=, once in-spec criteria on residency, movements and quality assurance is adhered to.
