When choosing a weight scale indicator, these are the top 3 factors you need to consider.
Scale indicator memory - Allows for storing an animal's weight along with their visual tag and/or electronic id number. After weighing your cattle, you can connect your indicator to a computer and download the weights into a spreadsheet or your herd management software.
Electronic ID (EID) reader interface - Connect an EID reader to your scale indicator for easy scanning and recording of electronic IDs as animals are weighed.
Advanced data storage capabilities - Record additional data beyond animal identification and weight, including such fields as pregnancy status, body condition score, or other notes.
