Weighing decisions made easy.

Quickly capture accurate animal weights to provide information you can act on to maximise profitability. Use it to identify poor performers, catch health issues early or easily split your animals into groups.

Tru-Test’s unique Superdamp 4™ weighing technology locks onto the weight of the liveliest animals faster than ever before. Combined with a rugged design, suitable for even the most extreme outdoor environments, Tru-Test’s weigh scale indicators have earned a global reputation as the animal weight capture and data management solution.

And now we have developed the next generation. The 5000 series.

The ID5000 is faster to set up and access information, with a high brightness screen that is clearly visible in the yards. It also has more options to speed up data transfer and increased storage capacity.

It’s never been easier to track the performance of your animals and make better informed decisions.

Store up to 250 thousand records in 250 weighing sessions. For each animal you can record up to 3 IDs and 3 pieces of information (breed, sex, and trait).
Track performance through calculating and visualizing an animal’s weight gain.
Sort animals into uniform groups. Up to 5 groups can be created.
Simple and fast to set up with predefined setups or save your own setups to easily switch between jobs.
More data transfer options. Quickly transfer information using your mobile and/or tablet device (Android* or Apple*), USB flash drive or computer (Microsoft Windows*).
Clearly see the screen even in bright sunlight with the high brightness 7" display.
