"We have over 1000 cattle and a few sheep which with no previous legislation experience could have been a nightmare for me, but with the excellent 24hr/7days week telephone and email support from Neil and the simple to use system it has been a dream.

I recently experienced my first cross compliance inspection and the software was essential to us passing" Karen Halton

Senior & Auto Drafter Indicators

Pharmweigh Indicator Pharmweigh Senior & Auto Drafter Indicators have been designed from scratch based upon years of first hand practical experience, incorporating multiple scale selection and multiple programs all within a simple, four key, user friendly, IP65 ruggedised enclosure. Through first hand experience of many commercially available indicators they’ve strived to incorporate core, sound, practical functionality while excluding the many cumbersome, unnecessary functions seen in many such indicators. Four Hot Keys with suitable one line on screen instruction only where necessary make the indicators simple and highly intuitive. We’ve applied the design philosophy that if it’s not intuitive it’s not right. The large screen is backlight for use in low light conditions, there’s an internal rechargeable battery with percentage power level on screen and the mount sits on 2 ball joints so it can be swiveled into any convenient position for viewing.

Farm Matters Compatible

Farm Matters is compatible with the Pharmweigh Senior & Auto Drafter Indicators. The indicators can connect to the Farm Matters console screens to read weights via the USB cable or the optional Bluetooth module.
