As part of Gallagher’s continuous goal to provide the most innovative systems and tools to help producers manage their livestock, Gallagher recently launched the W110 Entry Level Weigh System for livestock and general purpose weighing.  This is the first weighing system with these capabilities sold for under $1K in North America.  When raising or showing livestock, the regular weighing of animals is vital to increased productivity and profitability.  Measuring factors such as animal weights is vital not only to improving animal and herd performance, but ensuring the producer’s bottom line as well.  In fact, well informed management decision come from animal weight data that is easily obtained and accurate, as the width of the animal can have significant impact on the breeding performance and health of the animal.

Gallagher’s W110 Livestock Weighing System is an easy to use portable entry-level system with a 3,300 lb. weighing capacity.  The galvanized steel chassis load bars fit most platform sizes and come pre-calibrated to the indicator.  “This system comes with a weigh scale indicator, mounting bracket and load bars,” says Scott Rooney, Gallagher’s Product Specialist. “The unit’s tough construction allows for all weather outdoor usage. In addition to operating on four AA batteries, the plug and play system enables easy portability and convenience, making it very attractive to youth stock show enthusiast as well as FFA and 4H activities.
