Animal Scale FAQs

One of the main reasons to use an animal scale is for safety purposes. If an animal is overweight, it can be at risk for health problems such as obesity and diabetes. By keeping track of their weight, you can help to ensure that they stay healthy and avoid these potential problems.

First, find a flat, level surface on which to place the scale. It’s important that the scale is level so that you get an accurate weight reading. Next, place your pet on the scale and be sure that all four of their feet are touching the surface of the scale. Once your pet is in position, read the weight displayed on the scale. If you need to convert the weight to ounces or pounds, there are a number of online calculators that can help you do this. Finally, record the weight in a journal or other document so that you can track your pet’s progress over time.

Yes, our animal weighing scales can be used for livestock such as sheep, pigs and cattle.

Weighing livestock is important for a number of reasons. First, it allows producers to keep track of the animal’s weight and body condition over time. This information can be used to make management decisions, such as when to sell an animal or how much feed to give it. Second, weighing livestock can help producers estimate the value of their herd. Knowing the average weight of your animals can help you determine how much meat or milk they will produce, and this information can be used to negotiate better prices with buyers. Finally, weighing livestock can help identify health problems early on. A sudden drop in weight may indicate that an animal is sick or not getting enough food, and this information can be used to take corrective action.

"I received a call from a gentleman at Conway Freight regarding your service at Conway in Louisville.  Apparently he was extremely impressed with the service, repairs and installations American Scale completed at the terminal.  During the years we have been doing national service, this is the first time one of the national accounts has called specifically to compliment a dealer.  He has never walked into a terminal and not called me with some issue that needs to be fixed.  He said a couple times over there was not one little thing wrong with the scales that he could find. I want to thank your for everything you have done to present because American Scale represents Rice Lake and you have made both companies look great!  The gentleman who called is also the person who controls the reweighs and scale purchases for Conway corporate.  With that said, he was impressed!"
