As developers of the CattleMax software and long-time users (and dealers) of Tru-Test livestock scales, we have helped thousands of producers implement weighing and identification solutions to help save time, become better organized, and make better decisions.

As a CattleMax customer, it is important to select the right components to meet your management goals. Purchasing a set of weigh scales or an EID reader is not an equipment purchase as much as it is a technology investment. Once the components are purchased, you will still need to integrate them into your operation.

By purchasing your equipment from CattleScales.com, you will receive free expert advice, installation guidance, and integration support from ranchers just like you who use their Tru-Test products alongside CattleMax.

Plus as a bonus, receive $100 credit towards CattleMax with any scale indicator or EID reader purchase at CattleScales.com!


Import weights from your scale indicator into CattleMax

When you press the record button on your indicator, the animal's weight is stored along with their visual tag that you enter and/or electronic id number that you scan.

After weighing your animals, the weights can be downloaded to a spreadsheet and imported into CattleMax.

Benefits

  • Save time chuteside by having weights automatically recorded
  • Save time at the computer by importing the weights into CattleMax instead of manually entering
  • Eliminate errors from handwriting tag numbers and weights and manually entering them into CattleMax
  • Reduce labor by not needing someone (with clean hands) to record data

Record Weights and Scan EIDs in Realtime with TagMax

TagMax is a free app we developed that offers realtime connectivity to Tru-Test weigh scale indicators, Tru-Test EID readers, and Allflex EID readers. Simply pair the indicator or reader to your iPhone, iPad, or Android-compatible device and launch the TagMax app.

TagMax operates in two modes:

Sessions Mode
Create a session and scan tags. Optionally enter a visual ID (ear tag) and/or weight. After scanning cattle, you can email your session file (spreadsheet) to yourself or someone else on the ranch. This functionality does not require an Internet connection.

CattleMax Mode
Scan an animal's EID tag and have it loaded up in your CattleMax Online account. When an EID is scanned, the matching animal record will be displayed in CattleMax. If the EID number is not found, you'll have the option to add the EID to an existing animal record or to create a new animal record.

For more information, visit TagMax.com or download from the App Store links below.

TagMax-compatible indicators and readers

 

Import Electronic ID numbers from your EID reader into CattleMax

When you press the record button on your EID reader, the animal's electronic id tag is stored in the EID reader's memory. After working your cattle, the electronic id numbers can be downloaded to a spreadsheet and imported into CattleMax.

In addition, you can upload a list of corresponding visual tags and electronic id tags so that the animal's visual ear tag number shows up when the electronic id tag is scanned.

Another great feature of the XRS2 EID reader is the ability to upload an alerts file. When an animal with an alert is scanned, the alert message is displayed on-screen.

Benefits

  • Save time chuteside by having EID tags scanned to seamlessly build an inventory list of all cattle worked
  • Save time at the computer by importing the electronic id numbers into a CattleMax cattle group for easy group updating and reporting
  • Eliminate errors from handwriting ear tags and Electronic ID numbers as well as in manually entering the tags into CattleMax
  • Reduce labor by not needing someone (with clean hands) to write down tag numbers
