Gallagher Weigh Scales Lock In Weights Super Quick


The latest versions of Gallagher’s popular W610 and W810 weigh scale and data collectors offer faster livestock weighing and improved connectivity.

“It enables farmers to achieve outstanding levels of throughput when weighing large numbers of stock.”

The latest versions of Gallagher’s popular W610 and W810 weigh scale and data collectors offer faster livestock weighing and improved connectivity.

Gallagher product manager Dan Loughnane says the new generation models are the result of an ongoing process to deliver improvements in design and usability based on in-market customer feedback.

“The W610 and W810 are tried and proven products, but we are always on the lookout for ways to make yard work, more efficient and effective.”

Dan says the new version models lock in weights much faster. Both models feature a ‘Maximum Speed’ option which is particularly relevant for the sheep market, enabling weights to be locked in almost three times quicker than the standard weigh option. “This feature is particularly useful for the growing number of sheep operations that use automated drafters. It enables farmers to achieve outstanding levels of throughput when weighing large numbers of stock.”

Gallagher has also enhanced the weigh scale’s connectivity, enabling them to be connected to an Android device via Bluetooth. Using Gallagher’s free Animal Data Transfer (ADT) application, farmers can extract session files from the scale and send EID data directly to NAIT. They can also attach the full session information to an email or upload them straight to a web based database system such as AgHub. The ADT application is available from the Google Play store.

Both models now also come complete with Gallagher’s Animal Performance Software (APS Standard) – an industry leading tool, its user friendly, largely icon-based menu system makes viewing, evaluating and sharing current and historical animal information extremely quick and easy.

Featuring backlit screens, raised keyboards and ergonomically-operated switches and buttons, W610 v2 and W810 v2 weigh scale and data collectors can connect to any brand of EID reader and are capable of storing weight readings from many thousands of animals. Additional livestock management information, such as average daily weight gain and carcase weight, can also be calculated and displayed automatically when an animal is weighed.

Dan Loughnane says the launch of a new generation of weigh scales confirms Gallagher’s position as the market leader for weigh scale and data collection technology.

The new W610 v2 and W810 v2 were unveiled at the National Fieldays in June and will be available through Gallagher resellers nationwide.
