This highly popular AgriEID portable livestock scales kit has an advanced average weight algorithm used by commercial sale yard scales for incredible accuracy with rapid display of the animal weight on the included High Definition LCD monitor (stainless steel case).
The system also comes with powerful software to record and auto calculate each animals average daily weight gain (ADG) as they are weighed with the system. Enables the identification of poor performing animals in the yards so medical boost treatments can be applied on the spot to increase total annual weight production.
Key Benefits of AgriEID Scales :
1. Online Auction Sales: Knowing the accurate weight of cattle is crucial for selling in online markets. Buyers need precise information to make informed purchasing decisions.
2. Optimize Weight Prior to Sale: Regular weight monitoring helps in optimizing the weight of cattle before they are sold. This ensures that the cattle reach the market at their most profitable weight.
3. Accurate Medical Dosages: Precise weight measurement is essential to determine accurate dosage for medications and vaccines. This helps maintain the health of the cattle and prevents overdosing or underdosing.
4. Monitor Health and Well-being: Regular weight checks can be an effective way to monitor the general health and well-being of cattle. Rapid weight loss can be an indicator of illness or parasites.
5. Optimize Nutrition: By understanding the weight of cattle, farmers can better manage feed ratios to ensure each animal is receiving the necessary nutrients for healthy growth.
6. Breeding Management: Weight data can influence breeding decisions as certain weights are often optimal for breeding purposes. Track and cull poor performing genetics.
7. Determine Profitability: By monitoring weight gain, producers can determine the profitability of different feed types, management strategies, and genetics / breeds.
8. Performance Tracking: Regular weighing allows farmers to track the performance of individual animals or the herd over time, and adjust management practices accordingly.

These AgriEID Livestock Scales are a Heavy Duty (DIY) Solution. Easy to install and operate for all Cattle Crush sizes and designs.
This next generation livestock scale kit (GEN II) includes IP67 stainless steel load cells, stainless steel digital indicator, stainless steel IP67 junction box and double metal shield (stainless steel) PVC clear rodent proof quick connect cables.
This Gen II solution is built tough and is easy to install onto any custom platform or cattle crush. Cattle crushes come in many different designs (platform or no platform) and varying sizes (width, gates, head bale etc).
Combine with our Livestock Management Software to measure average daily weight gain (ADG) with individual medical records and notes.
With the AgriEID software it is simple and easy to record each animals average daily weight gain (ADG) over time. As such you can identify poor performing animals as they are weighed in the crush and then administer medical booster treatments to improve their performance (oral drench, pour-on, multivitamins etc). Poor young cattle performance is less than 250 grams weight gain per day - good performance is 500g to 1.5kg per day. As you only need to treat the poor performers - you save big money on expensive products. By using our scales and software your herd weight prior to sale is maximised and improvements can be up to 30 percent per annum in total gross weight gains.
Animal average daily weight gains (ADG) can be easily tracked using the NLIS tag with an AgriEID NLIS Digital Smart Reader or simply use the animals visual tags.

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 4500 kg.
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 100kg + 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 500-1000kg 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 4500kg so even with a 1000kg crush there is still 3500 kg 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

Check out our Free Guide on how to build a aluminium platform (click here). We recommend aluminium construction from a local engineering / welding / fabrication firm - cost should only be $500 to $800 and take a few days to build.
We do not sell platforms for 3 main reasons : Each crush is constructed differently with unique measurements and requires a custom built platform to properly fit with no installation issues. Freight costs for a large metal platform would be cost prohibitive. We also like to support local rural businesses and the community.
