Wireless loadbars from Gallagher

Wireless loadbars from Gallagher

Gallagher is proud to announce the release of their new “wireless” loadbars for purchase immediately.

For years, ranchers and farmers have dealt with tracking the health of their herd by weighing them. Previously, the farmer placed loadbars under their chute to weigh an animal.

During that process, they had to contend with the cables connecting the scale head to the loadbars.

One of the most common failure points in the process was the cables. Gallagher has changed that experience and created the wireless weigh.

Using Bluetooth technology, you can now weigh your livestock with the wireless loadbars and the Gallagher Animal Performance App on your mobile device or connect directly into a TW/TWR weigh scale for more advanced animal performance monitoring. Accurate livestock weights, time after time, the loadcells contain no moving parts, ensuring no wear for years of accurate weighing.

The loadbars are built to withstand the harshest farming environments. They are waterproof and constructed with galvanized steel chassis. Wireless connectivity removes the risk of rodents chewing cables, standing on by stock or damaging traditional scale connectors.

New VSS veterinary app.

New VSS veterinary app, website to track disease symptoms

With the touch of a smartphone button, veterinarians will be able to check online to determine if what they see in the field is unique to their area or part of a greater pattern, thanks to a new veterinary app and website created by a group of Texas A&M AgriLife faculty.

The Veterinary Syndromic Surveillance System, VSS, website and app are now live and will provide veterinarians a tool to access and input disease information to a central database, said Tom Hairgrove, DVM and Ph.D., Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service cattle veterinary specialist in the Texas A&M University Department of Animal Science, Bryan-College Station.

Hairgrove is leading a three-year “Improving the Sustainability of Rural Veterinarians Through Mentoring, Targeted Education, Telemedicine and Monitoring of Disease Syndromes” project, funded by a USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture grant.

The VSS website and app meet one of the goals set out within that grant – to provide quality continuing education in production medicine and participation in real-time disease surveillance, thereby providing practitioners, students and veterinary technicians with an increased awareness of state and regional livestock disease issues.

Animal health regulatory agencies in Texas, New Mexico and Arizona are involved in the project, Hairgrove said. The goal is to create a network of rural practitioners linked together through virtual reporting and diagnostic tools so veterinarians in underserved areas feel more engaged and part of a larger group experiencing similar issues in production agriculture.
