What is a weighing system?

A weighing system, is a powerful yet easy to use system which simply and precisely measures animal weight so that farmers can track performance.

The system is made up of a weigh scale indicator and a set of two weight sensing load bars or four weigh feet, which are usually positioned under a platform or handler.  When following the system link, please note that both the 110 series and the dairy scale are not available in South Africa.
