Sorting Scales for Weighing Pigs, Hogs, Calves and Other Livestock
The right pig sorter can do wonders for your farm. Arlyn Scale’s pig sorter offers 2-way, 3-way, 4-way or 5-way options for weighing and feeding areas. Our scales also accurately measure and mix their feed and medicine and the sorting system will ensure each pig gets into the correct feeding pen.
Durable Stainless Steel Scales
The durable stainless steel low-profile platforms and ramps also help reduce injury and make the process a little easier, not to mention our open-frame design is low-stress for your animals.
How the Pig Sorting Scales Work
The scales are on the path that the hogs take to their feeding areas, they wait to get weighed behind the gate –which takes just seconds- and when done the gate swings open. The routes and number of pathways can be customized.
Don’t forget Arlyn Scales are designed and manufactured in the U.S. for easy communication and accurate products.
How Do I Weigh an Animal When It Won’t Sit Still?
In the event you have a rambunctious piglet, our advanced algorithm records the average reading over a preset period of time and the system will open the exit gate when that set time expires.
Our scale’s weight capacity is 800 lb and has a high overload capacity of 500%.
Another benefit is the RFID ear tag reading functionality, which can record your hogs’ positions and facilitates weighing and analysis.
