Weighing and sorting of fattening pigs with a smartphone or tablet PC with 3D-camera: Software Piggy Check makes it possible. For this the DLG awards Piggy Check with the gold medal at EuroTier 2016!
Non-contact weight determination with Piggy Check ensures fast and easy sorting of fattening pigs prior to sale.
