There are two closeout report formats available, labeled as (A) or (B). Closeout (A) is a simple report displaying at-a-glance information associated with cattle performance and breakevens. Closeout (B) displays cattle performance values, death loss information, feed costs and breakevens in much more detail. 

Running custom closeout reports will allow you to view information based on an open group, closed group or combined groups. Combining group information in one closeout report lets you visualize group by group breakdowns and total values for your selection. In addition, the Reports tab gives you the ability to compare information between different groups and combined group reports. These reports can be used as a tool to see accurate projections and breakevens on groups currently on feed and sold out.
