Mobile scale livestock trailer

The E-Z Mobile Livestock Weigh System gives ranchers and growers the option of weighing products at multiple locations without the cost or hassle of recalibrating after each move. It is attached to a 7×18 ft. Silverado Livestock Trailer. An independent jack stand at each corner lifts the trailer into weigh mode. The system's benefits include using the trailer as a fully functional stock trailer when not in the weigh mode; reducing stress, handling and chance of injury; and providing legal, fast, documented weighs.

Maximize Feed Efficiency

Syngenta Seeds' Beef Ration Fit system allows producers to custom-design forage seed selection for maximum feed efficiency and return on investment. The program starts with cattle's nutrition needs in the backgrounding and growth feeding stages, where high corn-silage diets fit well, and focuses on silage hybrids with high-energy density to support high gain rates in cattle on less feed.

EID Color Wheel

Using an easy-to-read electronic identification (EID) system, Idlogic's Long Ranger color wheels, which are printed on animals' ear tags, can be read at substantial distances. The wheels, which are distinctly color-coded and are read like a bar code, eliminate the need to be in close proximity to the animal for an EID check. This system can also be used to locate animals for health checks, breeding, etc. A standard digital camera interfaced to a computer can identify color wheels 25-30 ft. away.
