EID Weigh Crate

Automatic identification, weighing and recording for faster, more precise record keeping.

The Shearwell Weigh Crate, with Static Reader, antenna and electronic weigh scales, will automatically identify the animal and accurately record its weight.

Call for pricing

The unique design of the weigh crate minimises electronic interference and optimises animal throughput. In trials, in one hour over 400 more sheep were weighed and recorded in this way than would have been possible manually.

The whole unit is rugged, readily portable and will operate on either mains or battery power. Of course, it's also weather proof, so you can take it and use it anywhere.

Anatomy of the Weigh Crate

Weigh Heads

Tru-Test weigh heads are supplied with our weigh crates.

Load Bars

Tru-Test MP600 load bars are fitted to the weight crate


Reader & Antenna

The Shearwell Race Reader is a robust, portable smart RFID reader used with a Shearwell Data Antenna and Switcher, to read livestock EIDs.  Alternating the orientation of the read some 10 times a second, the unique antenna and switcher maximise both the read accuracy and the range of the instrument by covering all angles as the animal passes.  An IP65 (Ingress Protection) rating guards against water and dust. HDX and FDX tags are both read.

Tablet Recorder

The dedicated tablet links wirelessly via bluetooth to the reader and weigh head to record weights against EID tags


Shearwell's Sheep Management Crate in use

An Android app that records weights against EID tags is included.

The Stock Recorder shown in the video is not currently available to buy in Australia.
