Weighing systems enable farmers to easily capture animal weights, replacing the traditional ‘eyeometer’ with an accurate measurement.

A weighing system plays a critical role in tracking animal performance and driving farm profitability. Specifically, the animal weight data collected allows famers to make informed decisions about health treatments, feed regimes, breeding and crop performance.

Review the range of articles here to look at the various weighing systems available and view how farmers are integrating them into their operations to improve the farming system.

Gallagher TSi 2 Weigh Scale gives vital data consistency in export-cattle protocols

“The amount of data the TSi 2 could capture easily is amazing. You do the initial setup, then after that there’s very little input from the operator – and it saved a fair bit of time. So the next day, I put in an order to get one, and ran down and picked it up just to keep operations going; because once we get going on protocoling, we go hard, and we go fast – there’s no room for downtime. So that decision was all about reliability."

Bald Blair Angus stud relies on cutting-edge Gallagher technology

“Weight gain is one of the primary aspects in determining condition and which teams are ready to sell. That’s why we like it, so we use the Gallagher TWR-5 on all our cattle. Whenever we’ve got cattle in the yards, having that ability to weigh and then assess weight gain from the last time to now, and whole-of-life gain, that whole screen, it is awesome. The ability to go from all animals in a session, to just the one animal that you’ve got on the scales, I love that. The simplicity and the time savings are great.”

Gallagher TWR-5 allows accurate, detailed livestock management

“We’re working towards increasing our data accuracy. That’s pretty important to what we do, but it’s a slow process because we’re only a family operation with just a few hands on deck, so it’s very labour intensive. The Gallagher TWR-5 seemed to have less inputs required; you can really pick and choose what you want to put in, and what data you want to record against each animal, so it’s very simple to operate.”
