Scales for individual animals

Every gram counts.

Weight references - and therefore margins - are becoming increasingly smaller in pig farming. Overweight and underweight entail deductions from sales revenues. Deductions can easily amount to 3.72 € per animal, reveals an example calculation performed by Erzeugerring Westfalen.

 

Weighing single animals reduces such losses by up to two thirds. Additionally, exact weighing facilitates increasing the average weight for slaughter without part of the animals exceeding the weight limit.

Weighing improves economic efficiency

The strict observance of weight limits optimizes sales revenues of fattening pigs. Our mobile single animal weighing machines are specifically designed for sorting pigs for slaughter. These scales facilitate comfortable and stress-free weighing inside or in front of the pens.

 

The standard repel gate provides two options. Firstly, inside large pens you can open the door by remote control to let the animals exit the scales. Secondly, in small pens you can weigh the animals on the aisle since it is possible to make the animals exit the back door of the scales to enter back into the pen. To do so you just need to reposition the control bar.

NEW: Weighing display for fast weighing!

The new weighing display makes it easier to quickly sort pigs with the help of a traffic light display. The desired weight range can be individually programmed by the user and is displayed in green when weighing. Weights above and below the desired range are indicated by red and yellow.

Weights are stored and totaled if necessary and can be transferred to the computer via a standard USB interface.

The display is large and bright and also easy to read in the stable. An animal weighing program as well as an automatic rebalancing also facilitate the fast animal weighing. The power supply is via mains adapter or battery operation.

These advantages are weighty.

  • Scales completely made of aluminium: the weight of less than 50 kg make it easy to maneuver.
  • Waterproof sealed weighing cells and impact resistant weighing beams ensure high functional reliability in rough day-to-day operations.
  • Cable routing inside rails to prevent damages caused by rodents.
  • Power supply provided by battery to ensure high mobility.
  • Animal weighing program with lock function to ensure speedy weighing of moving animals.
  • Automatic taring: soiling does not affect weighing results.
  • Large, bright display with waterproof membrane keyboard: easily readable weighing indicator.
  • Laterally closed walls: Animals do not get distracted, thus accelerated weighing process.
  • Weighing platform in one piece what makes the scales even more robust.

These advantages are weighty.

  • Very low access height of only 7 cm: pigs like to enter the scales.
  • Free passage for operator: practical suitability is important.
  • Repel function with door: animals can exit the weighing machine at the back.
  • Total width only 58 cm: easy to handle in narrow aisles.
  • Smooth surfaces and only few edges minimize cleaning efforts.
  • Holder for spray can and marking pen: everything ready to hand.
  • 3 years implied warranty for the entire weighing machine: provides security for the future.
