Galligher TWR-5 livestock scales

Gallagher TWR-5 livestock scales

Gallagher’s new range of weigh scales helps provide producers with the ability to record more details and data about their stock, making the scales a useful tool for tracking livestock performance.

The system features an integrated EID reader, making the task of managing electronic ID and weighing far simpler and more convenient. With the addition of a simple screw-on antenna, producers would not need to purchase a separate controller-EID reader with the TW-R system, but if a user only requires tags to be read, rather than recording weigh data, the scales can operate simply as a scanner.

The TWR-5 is battery operated and can run the scanner and scales over a full eight-hour day without requiring a recharge. Visit Gallagher for more information.

BESS nursing bottles and nipples

BESS nursing bottles and nipples

Cotran Corporation is introducing a new line of nursing bottles that are ergonomically designed for ease of handling. The round shape allows easier and faster cleaning compared to square bottles. The bottles are available in 2, 3 and 4 quarts.

BESS bottles are accompanied by new no-leak, long-lasting nipples. These innovative nipples made from high-quality synthetic rubber are fitted with a patent-pending system incorporating a membrane insert and hole at the tip of the nipple that prevents tearing and controls milk flow. Only the sucking motion of the calf will allow milk to flow. In addition to red and pink nipples, a clear nipple is available, which allows the user to see the flow of milk and helps with cleaning of the nipple.

The galvanized steel construction also provides corrosion resistance. The HD5T load bar is easy to install by bolting it to the chute, then bolting to the level concrete surface.
