Why weigh your animals?

You can’t manage what you don’t measure.

Weighing your animals is a powerful performance measurement and profit management tool. Monitoring livestock weight gives you insight into animal growth, health and performance, allowing you to make more informed management decisions using data that is accurate and easily accessible. And keeping this process easy with the right tools leaves you more time for family… and fishing.

Customer story

Mat Sheriff using cloud technology for an easier “weigh” of life

“We measure everything we can here. Hitting our liveweight targets is vitally important. If we don’t hit those targets, we run the risk of not selling out cattle at the right time, which directly affects our bottom line weigh system.”
