As you know, you can’t manage what you can’t measure. Ask yourself, do you really know if you’re producing live-weight gain like you think your are?

With OPTIWEIGH you could be getting accurate weight readings all the time without the cost, time and live-weight loss associated with yarding your cattle. Constantly monitor your livestock weight remotely from the comfort of your office on your desktop or in the field on your mobile.

When you’re armed with the right information you are in a better position to know when and how many of your cattle are ready for sale so they can be booked in. You have access to whether or not target weights are on track to being achieved.

You can see if they are being fed too little or too much and adjust accordingly so as to minimise the time it takes to get them to sell weight. Plus you can assess the effectiveness of varying feed regimes base on live-weight gain information.


OPTIWEIGH is tough, rugged and built for Australian paddocks. It is designed to stay in the paddock long term and is built to withstand any rough treatment it is likely to receive from cattle. It is quick and easy to move and takes less than a minute to set up. Plus it can be towed behind or put in the back of a Ute or on a trailer.

So make sure you unlock the potential in your herd with OPTIWEIGH, the accurate and intelligent cattle weighing system providing up to the minute real-time data to profitably aid in stock management.
