Permanent Weighing System
Converting your squeeze chute into a livestock scale system is easily done by mounting load cells or Heavy Duty Load Bars under the squeeze chute. Stationary livestock scales allow for capturing weights on single animals as they enter the squeeze chute. A stationary livestock scale may also include a customized platform with gates to contain the group of animals, allowing the producer to capture a group of animals and record an average daily weight gain. Typically stationary livestock scales are mounted on concrete footings on a level surface. When the load bars are bolted to concrete and attached to your chute, this permanent situation will allow for continued use for many years and is ideal for producers with larger herds weighing large numbers of livestock.
Permanent Weighing Systems Include:
- HD or XHD Series Load Bars (brackets may be necessary)
- Scale Indicator – A number of options are available
