Weighing Dairy Cows

Posted on February 11, 2020

Farmers Weekly assessed the value of automatically weighing dairy cows when they are milked. These weighing platforms are added in the milking stall, and after each cow is weighed, the data is analyzed to identify weight change trends. Possibilities for how this information can be used include the following:

  • Monitor weight loss in early lactation
  • Maintain accurate medicine dosing
  • Monitor milking ration
  • Track heifer growths and weights

NSM sells numerous livestock scales as well as indicators to be used in combination with these scales. Let us know how we can assist with your dairy cow or other livestock needs!
