The Weigh Vetmarker® has been developed to enable farmers to weigh their lambs at docking time, without compromising time and the handling of the lamb.
The lambs are loaded into the Weigh Vetmarker® one at a time, where they are EID and weights recorded. They them proceed on down the Vetmarker® for all your docking/ tailing requirements such as castration, earmarking, vaccinating.
When the lamb is ready to be released the lever is pulled forward and the lamb is released onto its feet. It can automatically be sprayed for fly-strike on release if required.
The Weigh Vetmarker self-locks onto the top rail of the lamb catching pen.
The Weigh Vetmarker® has Iconix Load Cells with compatible leads for Tru-Test and Gallagher indicators.
Before weighing lambs it is necessary to configure the Iconix Load Cells to your indicator. This only needs to be done once.
Lambs can be weighed automatically as soon as they are loaded into the Vetmarker.
Once the lamb has been weighed, it then continues on down the Vetmarker® for all other procedures that are done at docking/tailing time.
"The Vetmarker® docking chute proved to be a real success, not only with its spray and release system which works really well. The on-board scales are revolutionary especially with all our lambs being tagged at docking. To have the ability to monitor individual growth rates throughout lactation is potentially very powerful on farm information. With the clever design of the Vetmarker® we felt no time was compromised with the lambs being weighed at docking time, in fact it was very efficient and the docking gang was impressed."

"The Vetmarker® has proven its worth on our Transition Farms where we have been doing several operations at tailing time. The lambs are weighed, EID tagged, earmarked, injected, tailed and sprayed for fly as fast as the guys can lift them. It is easy on the lambs and the workers."
