With increasing competition for good dairy grazing and other stock classes, weighing and EID systems can give you the edge. The more lucrative contracts include incentives for achieving agreed target weights before stock are returned to the owner. The TSi recording system enables frequent and accurate reporting to the owner on stock performance, down to individual animal history including drenching dates. Who would you rather have look after your animals – someone that reports back to you with regular, accurate live weights or someone who does not?
While the TSi is ideal for livestock-related on-farm use - it doesn't stop there. The TSi has the versatility and capability to be a farm-wide management tool, which you can use to keep track of a wide variety of activities and items on your farm. For example, you can track your paddock and crop management activities or store farm vehicle details and service records . Find out more about how the TSi's flexible recording system can be applied to general farming uses.
Use the TSi to place animals in groups, report on weight gain and draft by group.

"TSi has made heifer weighing much simpler and more accurate. The weight of each animal appears the moment it crosses the scales and this information along with other recorded data, such as the heifer’s previous weight and animal health history, means rapid decisions can be made on the spot.”
“This is a big improvement on the old manual recording system. It's also very efficient - one staff member can now weigh and record 120 heifers an hour with the TSi, compared with 100 per hour under the previous two-person system.”
“GrazCare graziers are paid on a heifer weight-gain basis and they like the new technology because they can get instant and precise feedback on how the heifers are doing." Read more
