Why Weigh Cattle and Livestock? | Gallagher Scales

Whats the importance of Cattle Scales for weighing livestock?

By tracking the performance of farm animals you can easily identify healthy breeds that perform better and cull the unproductive breeds or used them for other purposes. Monitoring animal weight facilitates early identification of diseases and averts a dangerous disease from spreading to other farm animals.

Monitoring livestock also helps in deciding an appropriate weaning time and selecting animals for cross breeding

Governor Announces Millions in Water Projects

HARRISBURG, Pa. — On Wednesday, Gov. Tom Wolf announced the investment of $39 million for 12 drinking water, wastewater, stormwater, and nonpoint source projects across nine counties through the Pennsylvania Infrastructure Investment Authority. Four farm projects were included.

“Today marked another special day for the Pennvest program and for the citizens of Pennsylvania,” Wolf said. “By approving almost $40 million in funding for clean water projects across the commonwealth, the Pennvest board continued its commitment to improve the quality of our rivers and streams, the health of our families and the economic prosperity of our state.”

Of the $39 million, $18.2 million is allocated for low-interest loans and $20.8 million is awarded through grants.

The funding comes from a combination of state funds approved by voters, federal grants to Pennvest from the Environmental Protection Agency and recycled loan repayments from previous Pennvest awards. Funds for the projects are disbursed after bills for work are paid and receipts are submitted to Pennvest.

The Chester County Conservation District and Elmer Kaufman received a $408,039 grant to install manure control facilities, including a concrete waste storage structure, gutters and downspouts, four catch basins and new pipes, as well as planting 900 feet of new grass waterways, to reduce nutrient run-off into Two Log Run during wet weather.

The Chester County Conservation District and Daniel Esh received a $350,467 grant to install a variety of manure control facilities, including more than 1,000 square feet of paved and curbed barnyard as well as 14,400 square feet of reinforced gravel animal trail to reduce nutrient runoff into a tributary of the East Branch of Octoraro Creek during wet weather.

The Chester County Conservation District and Fiddle Creek Dairy received a $245,494 grant to install a roofed manure stacking structure, a watering facility and underground outlets, as well as animal trails and walkways that will serve to reduce nutrient runoff into a tributary of Big Beaver Creek during wet weather.

The Chester County Conservation District and David Stoltzfus received a $347,055 grant to make a variety of improvements in manure handling facilities as well as installing reinforced gravel animal walkways, a stream crossing and streambank fencing, all of which will reduce nutrient runoff into Muddy Run during wet weather.

Powerful New Solars Designed to Control Both Livestock & Wildlife

S100 fence charger in pasture with cattle and deer


KANSAS CITY, MO – Gallagher has updated their popular Solar Energizer Line with two solar units that have greater output for extended distance ratings and technology to help customers manage both livestock and wildlife.

The S100 is the largest Solar in the line with 1 stored joule and the ability to power up to 30 miles / 100 acres of clean fence.  The smaller S40 contains .4 stored joules and can power up to 10 miles / 30 acres of clean fence.

Both the S100 and S40 units include "dual mode" capability to help ensure optimum battery management and animal control specific to the needs of the user.   The livestock control mode operates with a fast pulse during the day and switches to a slower pulse at night for when domestic animals are less active. The wildlife control mode, operates with a fast pulse day and night to ensure wildlife exclusion.   
The S100 operates on a 12volt battery, while the S40 relies on a 6volt battery. Both high quality batteries are capable of powering the units for three weeks without sunshine and the built-in smart control system in each of the units ensures that if battery output declines, the energy output will adjust accordingly until the battery is charged up again. Battery health is clearly visible via a battery status indicator.

Developed for temporary fencing, these models have a well-positioned 360 degree mounting point at their base that allows the units to sit on t-posts for correct orientation towards the sun regardless of which way the post is facing.  With a rugged waterproof casing and UV tested plastic body the S40 has a pedigree of long lasting, field proven design backing up its smart electronics.
