Beef Monitor

NEW Ritchie Beef Monitor

Remove labour intensive weight monitoring and get accurate daily live weights with the NEW Ritchie Beef Monitor.

Average live weight gains (LWG) of finishing cattle are measured every time they drink water, reducing the labour needed to weigh them individually through a crush each week – or eliminate the guesswork if they are not weighed at all!

Using compatible ear tags, the Ritchie Beef Monitor records the weight and ear tag data every time the cattle walk across the unit to access water. The average LWG allows progressive farmers to ensure that their cattle are at optimum weights when sent to the abattoir. Reducing the risk of receiving over-weight penalties whilst ensuring the cattle are at their premium weight.

The tracking of LWG allows the management of cattle nutrition to speed up or slow down the growth to make sure that the cattle are ready when you need them to be.

Track your cattle

The Ritchie Beef Monitor is a weigh unit with a difference. The crate allows cattle to be weighed multiple times a day without the use of labour and without moving cattle from their pen. A huge reduction in stress for both stockman and stock.

Easy to set up


EID tag reading, weighing and recording

Sit back and relax

After installing a Ritchie Beef Monitor unit in a finishing pen of up to 50 head, the cattle access the water trough by stepping on the weighing platform. Using EID ear tags an accurate weight of each beast can be recorded and sent to the cloud every time they go to water. This enables beef finishing units to closely monitor the growth rate of their cattle.
