Weighing

At Tru-Test Group, we’ve been designing and manufacturing accurate, rugged weighing systems for over 30 years.

Weighing replaces guess-work with facts, making it a powerful performance measurement tool for farmers. The information provided by Tru-Test weigh scales assists critical decision making about feed, health treatments and herd size management.

With our new MiHub Livestock Management software  (available for free with your Tru-Test weigh scale), it’s now even easier to turn your weighing data into simple, clear valuable insights that help you make your decisions.

Benefits Of Weighing For Your Farming Operation

Ensure livestock are sold at the optimum weight grade – closely manage the weight gains of individual animals or mobs and tailor your feed and treatment inputs as required.

Minimise treatment waste – more accurately calculate drench/pour-on dosage based on the requirements of the individual animal to minimise treatment waste while also maximising the health of your livestock.

Monitor reproductive performance – closely monitoring the weight gain of offspring can help make breeding decisions to maximise reproductive performance.

Identify sick or lame animals early – regular weighing of individual animals means weight loss and other issues that manifest over time are identified quickly.

Electronic Identification (EID)

 

Tru-Test has worked hard to develop our range of electronic readers to be the best available in the market.

Electronic Identification (EID) means individual animals can be tracked through their entire life cycle via an electronic ear tag.

Whilst the government introduced NAIT scheme has made EID mandatory for cattle and deer, there are greater benefits to be had from employing EID in your farming operation. Tagging animals with an electronic (EID) tag provides an opportunity to better manage the individual performance of those animals.

Over time, an animal’s weight history can be tracked, good and bad performers can be identified and the input of resources managed to ensure profits are maximised.

Tru-Test EID readers deliver information about your livestock rapidly, by reading electronic ear tags on animals that are on a weigh platform, or running through a race. Individual animal information captured against EID tags can help inform your animal health, mating and culling decisions. All Tru-Test EID readers are rugged, reliable, 100% water and dust proof. Suitable for cattle, sheep and deer applications.
