I want a set of scales to weigh cattle and hogs. Has anyone bought a set of these load bars and built a platform on them? I think these would be the ideal setup to be used in an alleyway. I see you can buy the load bars for around 600.00 dollars.
We've got a set of the digi-star bars and we built a deck on top of them and they work great.
We mounted our load bars under the chute. That seems to work better for us. We weigh when the come into the chute then work the animal. I suppose putting them in the alley way is okay so long as you can keep them on the scales.
