Cattle Scales

Cattle scales are very important instruments in livestock weighing. While you're browsing our site please consider your particular situation and determine which style of scale you require. Permanent Installation; for example a squeeze chute. Portable cattle scales; for example see the weigh beams below on this page. With weigh beam systems, usually you would have the weigh beams under what you're weighing and they are connected to a digital weight indicator via a 15 foot long cable. It's also worth noting that we do have some weigh bars which can be permanently installed. The Avery-Weigh Tronix ChuteWeigh system is ideal for livestock weighing and herd management. The ease of installation and setup, allows the Chute Weigh system to be accurately weighing in just minutes. Installation can be portable or permanent depending on specific application.

Portable Installation: Examples include AWB Series Weigh Beams, Brecknell PS2000 platform scale, Avery Weigh-Tronix Chuteweigh which is nice for platforms in alleyways. In many cases you can set the scale up just as they're getting ready to enter the squeeze chute.

Permanent Installation: Examples include Rice Lake SLV Livestock Scale and AWB Series Weigh Beams. SLV is available as a simple platform scale or you add the optional chutes and gates. We also have heavy duty AWB Series weigh beams which can be installed under your chute. Also see the Avery Weigh-Tronix chute weigh system. We also have Rice Lake weigh modules and Avery Weigh-Tronix weigh bar kits which might work well in certain settings.

When in transport mode, the cage is "locked down" to the base frame. This prevents cage movement and load cell damage during transport.
