Ultrahawke ’s Cattle Scales systems has recently been installed at Powrana Saleyards, located in Tasmania, in order to help weigh pens of cattle. The Cattle Scales are Australian made and manufactured by Ultrahawke, the installation and service was commissioned by Alan Bennett Scale Service – Ultrahawke’s preferred scales reseller and installer.
Under the new live weight selling system, potential buyers place bids in dollars per kilogram for a pen of cattle. After bidding closes, the cattle are then weighed on Cattle Scales systems to calculate the actual sale price.
Ultrahawke’s Cattle Scales are manufactured in stainless steel and hermetically sealed with an IP68 rating. The Cattle Scales systems feature the Flintec RC3 scales load cells, which are ideally used in aggressive environments, such as cattle bidding. The manure build up on the scales deck is regularly washed down with the majority of the waste entering the scales pit and then exiting through a gravity drain.
