T30 scale system from Te Pari

T30 scale system from Te Pari

Te Pari’s T30 scale system includes loadbars mounted under the chute, connected via an onboard Wi-Fi router to the T1 “black box” scale, which sends the reading to the T30 tablet.

The tablet can also connect to an EID wand or Te Pari dosing gun. At the end of the weighing session, the data is pushed into the cloud via a SIM card installed in the Wi-Fi router and can be downloaded later for processing.

Producers can use the system to monitor weight gain, record illness and treatments, and record animal traits to help with sorting decisions. The system also functions as a sorting tool, allowing producers to sort by several options including weight, weight gain, ID, trait, group, source and more.

Invora from Bayer

Invora herbicide provides long-term control of huisache, honey mesquite and other brush species for use in Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico and Arizona. Invora is labeled for private non-hayed rangeland and non-hayed perennial grasslands managed as rangeland. The herbicide controls many difficult-to-manage brush and weed species that negatively impact the grazing and browsing potential of rangeland.

The herbicide also helps restore rangeland health by reducing the negative impacts of difficult-to-control brush that compete with desirable vegetation for valuable nutrients, water, sunlight and space. This product combines two different active ingredients to provide comprehensive management of susceptible brush that shade desirable forage species and control of a broad spectrum of undesirable herbaceous weeds.
