There have also been tremendous enhancements in the usability of scales. In previous years, some of the models offered lots of good features but were very complex to work with, especially if did not use them often. Newer models still offer beneficial processes but are much easier and straight-forward to work with.
CattleMax and Cattle Weigh Scales
Livestock scales, such as the Tru-Test scales, are designed specifically for the rugged conditions and environments of cattle country. The weigh scales are also implementing new technologies, as the leading cattle weigh scales include a memory component. This puts the weight processing on the scales (which they are designed for) and minimizes the need to have a separate computer or device just to collect the weight. This helps have less equipment at the chute or pens, so you can focus on getting your cattle weighed!
