Feedlot System

Processing

The processing module allows the customer to scan EID's, weight and temperature directly into their computer with no external scale monitors or temperature monitors. The supplied Allweigh Computerized Scale hardware unit allows for direct connections between any type of digital scale, load cell or weigh bar, and can be configured to run with any EID reader with a serial port. The temperature port can be set up to work with the Allweigh temperature probe or to your existing GLA temperature probe.

From one computer screen, the user can view the animals' weight, EID, temperature, diagnosis and what treatment is to be given. If needed, with one click of a button, the animals' entire history can be viewed. (ie. diagnosis, treatment, location history, pen movements etc.)

The system will track whatever you need it to. The log fields are completely customizable and any value can be quickly applied. Whatever your needs may be. For example:

  • Days on feed
  • Withdrawal
  • Lot
  • Broken needle check
  • If the animal has been sick
  • Etc.. (insert your own fields here)
Treatments

Custom treatments can be setup by your veterinarian, with dosages, procedures and medications. Every time an animal is treated, the scanned EID, and any other information, is automatically sent to the database. This information can be retrieved at any time and cross checked with other animals to see how effective treatments are.

Diagnosis

Diagnosis can be setup and then applied to an animal. You never have to guess what procedures to perform on an animal, or need to write down what was done, the system will track and log all entered information. If a sick animal is brought into the hospital, the entire history can be checked when the EID is scanned to see if it has been treated before, and with what medications.

When an animal leaves the feedlot location, or becomes deceased, the EID can be entered in manually, or scanned into the system to change its status. The animals' data stays in your system permanently so you can still use it for future reference.
