Why Do I Need a Livestock Scale?

With the ability to bring the scale to the animal, Rice Lake’s MAS line ensures maximum profitability in any transaction. On average, sellers who rely on an MAS scale can instantly recover 2-3% of their profits on every sale, making Rice Lake’s MAS line one of the smartest investments in ranching.

Find the best livestock scale for your ranch or farm by determining your livestock weighing goals. Before purchasing a livestock scale, consider the following:

  • Shrink Loss
  • Animal Welfare
  • Scale Size
  • Certifications and Regulations
  • Mobility

What is Shrink?

Whether selling large or small numbers of livestock, minimizing shrink or loss is a major factor in maximizing your ranch’s bottom line. Cattle leave the seller at a certain weight and arrive at the destination weighing less—that is shrink. Depending on travel distance, weather and other stress factors, animals can lose significant weight during transport. Quickly calculate the savings and return on your Rice Lake livestock scale investment with our Livestock Shrink Calculator app.
