As part of Gallagher’s continuous goal to provide the most innovative systems and tools to help producers manage their livestock, Gallagher recently launched the W110 scale for livestock and general purpose weighing. This is the first weighing system with these capabilities sold for under $1K in North America.
When raising or showing livestock, the regular weighing of animals is vital to increased productivity and profitability. Measuring factors such as animal weights is vital not only to improving animal and herd performance, but ensuring the producer’s bottom line as well.
