EASIER WEIGH-IN: Weighing in pigs, sheep or goats for livestock shows and fairs just got easier with the release of a new digital weight display for livestock scales.

Osborne Industries offers digital weight display for scales

The ACCU-ARM portable weight scales are used to weigh small animals such as pigs or sheep.

Osborne Industries Inc., manufacturer of ACCU-ARM portable livestock scales, has released a new, cost-saving digital weight display for its 500-pound capacity weigh scales for small animals such as pigs, sheep and goats.

The new digital display for ACCU-ARM scales features special programming that allows it to quickly display animal weights within seconds, with measured accuracy within 1%.

Programmed with a “quick freeze” feature that holds a displayed weight until the animal being weighed is unloaded, the simple digital display makes the job of weighing small animals fast and easy. Settings are easily changed on the display to weigh animals in the scale or to allow direct-weighing of feed or other items up to 220 pounds.

ACCU-ARM scales equipped with the all new digital display are available with an 18-in. or 24-in. wide platform., and all previous models of ACCU-ARM scales can be retrofitted with the new digital display just in time for this summer’s county fairs and livestock shows.

In addition to the new, easy-to-use digital display, the ruggedly constructed ACCU-ARM weigh scale features a variety of components not found in other scales commercially available.

These cable-free scales feature many customizable options, including quick-close entry and exit gates, side-opening or center-opening remote gates that can be operated from either side of the scale, and a convenient wheel kit for easy moving. Osborne also continues to offer a sensitive mechanical dial and highly-accurate, feature-loaded electronic meter.
