In 1998 when I attended a feed meeting the Opticon bird scale was introduced. There was an Opticon display model at that particular meeting that I further investigated. I decided that day to order my scale and put it to the test.

The scale works great. I have used it on a daily basis since its arrival. The only issues I have had were external ones. Once, a lighting strike took out the load cell and it had to be replaced.

I have toured to the Opticon manufacturing plant in Europe and was very impressed.

The bird weighing scale is very beneficial to my operation. By monitoring ADG and flock uniformity on a daily basis, I can recognize problems and concerns in a timely manner.  The scale helps me to notice issues before I can see them with the naked eye.  It has been an invaluable tool toward improving flock health and overall performance.

I would not want to be without it!
