Connection of the 4 x Heavy Duty Load Cells to the Digital Weigh Indicator is simple - we provide detailed instructions (link below) and support to quickly get your cattle scales installed and operational in the yards.
Combine with our Livestock Management Application to measure weight gain and performance over time with medical records and notes (Free trial here).
Video of how to Add and Track Digital Weight Records with ADG (Average Daily Gain) :
Animal average daily weight gains (ADG) can be easily tracked using the EID tag with an AgriEid EID Digital SMART Reader or simply use the animals visual tags.
This application works on any device and can be used with internet access or when internet access is not available use a simple excel template to upload weight records.
The cloud based AgriEID livestock management platform delivers powerful analytics and secure digital record keeping. (instant save, update and retrieval on any device).

Please note : The alluminium platform is not included with these scale (see below for our DIY construction guide and how to order from your local engineering / fabrication company)
Construction of an Aluminium Weigh Platform :
This is our recommended solution as the total weight is less than 75lb for a platform size of 6'6 x 2'2 (feet). An Aluminium platform can be quickly built by your local fabrication / engineering company for about $500 including materials. Materials required are 2in x 2in x 3/16 Angle (platform sides), 2in RHS (centre rib support), 3/16 aluminium plate and 9/16 x 8in x 2in pads for the load cells (drilled and tapped). Take the measurements for the platform size you need along with a load cell, screws and brackets provided and they will be able to build you a light weight, low profile super strong platform in no time.

The kit is calibrated at the factory and pre-wired. If further calibration is required after installation it only takes only 5 minutes to complete.
The AgriEid Stainless Steel IP67 Cattle Scale Indicator has a "Livestock Hold" function with a selectable 3 or 5 second average weight calculation for superior accuracy.
Suitable for maximum capacity up to 10,000 (LB)
Construction of a Timber or Steel Platform.
A timber platform can be built if you do not have welding skills or access to a local engineering firm. We do recommend steel over timber construction as steel is more rigid and less likely to warp over time which can result in load cell errors. Please note a hard wood timber or steel platform will weigh 220lb + so they are heavy.
Attach to base of Crush frame : We provide 4 x threaded base plates with heavy duty bolts so you can attached the feet to the base of the cattle crush frame. The average cattle crush weighs 1000 to 2000 lb so this system has plenty of capacity for the crush to be used as a permanent platform. The maximum capacity for the 4 load cells when installed is 10,000 lb so even with a 3000 lb crush there is still 7000 lb capacity for weighing animals.
Why Purchase Digital Cattle Scales :
1. Weigh regularly to maximise profit - Ensure animals are continually gaining weight - Review the speed which animals are gaining weight - Identify good performers and poor performers 2. Apply accurate treatment dosages 3. Identify and monitor sick animals 4. Ensure optimum weight is achieved prior to sale
