Electronic Cattle Scales

Members are also able to borrow a set of Gallagher electronic cattle scales.

Regular use of scales enables better informed management and marketing decisions to be made by removing the guesswork on critical liveweights. By weighing calves at regular intervals also enable valuable comparisons to be made on the better performing cattle facilitating better breeding and culling decisions to improve productivity and profitability.

Note that it is important to have a solid, flat base in your crush for the load bars. A concrete pad is best.

For further information on the scales see the Gallagher website. Note that the scales available are V5.
