The Ritchie Beef Monitor is a weigh unit with a difference. The crate allows cattle to be weighed multiple times a day without the use of labour and without moving cattle from their pen. A huge reduction in stress for both stockman and stock.
After installing a Ritchie Beef Monitor unit in a finishing pen of 40-50 head, the cattle access the water trough by stepping on the weighing platform. Using EID ear tags an accurate weight of each beast can be recorded and sent to the cloud every time they go to water. This enables beef finishing units to closely monitor the growth rate of their cattle.
Average daily weights and average daily live weight gains are recorded and calculated for you using the website and handy app, suitable for smart phone or laptop, enabling the stockman to determine how the stock are performing at a glance.
