Participate In The State Rate Of Gain Contest In Indianapolis

Students attending the 2012 National FFA Convention in Indianapolis Oct. 24‐26 will have the opportunity to bring home the gold for their state. Digi‐Star will be hosting a state rate-of-gain contest featuring the StockWeigh 4600EID™. The winning state's Vo‐Ag programs will receive a special offer on livestock scale systems in 2013.

Students who visit the Digi‐Star booth (# 471) during the Expo will step on the Digi‐Star Alleyway Scale and scan their state RFID tag. The accumulative state weight and number of participants will display on screen in real time.

"With today's cost of feed, it is critical to achieve maximum rate of gain," said Larry Raupp StockWeigh product manager for Digi‐Star. "You can only know this if you have an accurate method of weighing your animals. Students who visit our booth will experience how easy it is to obtain a rate of gain on individual animals using the StockWeigh 4600EID scale," said Raupp.

Digi‐Star offers a full line of durable multi‐feature livestock scales including an exclusive load-cell design to accurately weigh animals on uneven surfaces, capture up to 10,000 individual animal weight records that can be transferred to a producer's computer, and power-supply options that offer complete portability.
