How to select a weigh scale indicator

Do you want to save weights on your scale indicator?

Memory-enabled scale indicators have the capability of storing weights and animal ear tags or EID numbers.

Benefit: Save time from hand-writing weights by storing weights on your scale indicator and then download them to a spreadsheet after working cattle.

Do you want to utilize an EID Reader?

Bluetooth-compatible scale indicators enable you to connect a compatible EID reader directly to the scale indicator. When an animal's EID tag is scanned, the EID number is sent directly to the scale and associated with the animal's weight. You can still use an EID reader with non-Bluetooth compatible scale indicators, however, you will need to use a mobile device and the TagMax app.

Benefit: Faster processing of cattle by scanning EID tags instead of manually entering tag numbers into your scale indicator.

Do you want to view animal history on your scale indicator?

Some scale indicators have an advanced display and memory capability which enables you to view an animal's history, including animal details and previous weights.

Benefit: Keep all of your information on one device instead of having information on laptops and mobile devices.
