Gallagher makes it easier to weigh your animals. Gallagher’s W-1 scale is their entry-level, EID (electronic identification) compatible scale with Wi-Fi connectivity to sync animal data to your animal performance web and mobile app (more on this app in a future article).

Record weights against an animal EID or visual tag number to monitor weight gain and maximise your livestock performance. Weighing with animal ID numbers allows you to make informed decisions based on individual animal performance over a lifetime. Weights are automatically matched to the animals ID number so you can record animal data and monitor growth over multiple sessions.
