What is a Profile?

A profile allows you to define a list of possible results for an operation to be conducted during the session. Examples include pregnancy testing, vaccinations, condition scoring, tick control etc. Example: Pregnancy testing – define profile PREG. The range of results might be 0/3/6 (Months). When a new session is started the operator could choose the PREG profile and from then on the operator is prompted to select 0, 3 or 6 for each animal processed in the session. The record log for each animal will then be:

Session "PREG" - Date/Time, EID#, Weight, {0, 3 or 6}

Example: Vaccination - A vaccination operation may need to record a basic yes/no. The record for the animal will then be:

Session "VACC" - Date/Time, EID#, Weight, {Y or N}

About Rinstrum's Live Weigh Algorithm

Rinstrum first developed a live weigh algorithm in 2005 for use in basic animal scales. The algorithm has been refined over the past 10 years and is used on applications ranging from live fish weighing, sheep drafting, and veterinary scales to patient weighing for medical. This refined live weighing algorithm is provided standard in our agWEIGHr range of indicators to ensure your livestock is weighed reliably.
