Osborne Industries, Inc., a leader in the design and development of advanced livestock management equipment for sheep, goats, and pigs, celebrates the 30-year anniversary since the development of the ACCU-ARM animal weighing system. Osborne has offered the ACCU-ARM Portable Livestock Scale since the mid-1980’s, and continues to market the animal-friendly scales to livestock producers, 4-H clubs, and county fair groups around the country.
In August 1985, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office issued Patent No. 4,533,008, for the innovative way of weighing animals. The scale features a unique system of precision levers to deliver the most accurate weights that completely eliminates the use of old-style cables and torsion bars.
The ruggedly constructed 500-lb. capacity weigh scale features a variety of components not found in other scales commercially available. ACCU-ARM scales feature many customizable options, including quick-close entry and exit gates, side-opening or center-opening remote gates that can be operated from either side of the scale, a convenient wheel kit for easy moving, and an instant-read dial or electronic digital meter featuring a “quick freeze” digital display that holds a displayed weight until the scale is unloaded. The ACCU-ARM scales are available with an 18-in. or 24-in. wide platform.
Today, the quiet, almost motionless operation of the Osborne ACCU-ARM scale continues to delight users around the United States. A popular choice for 4-H Clubs, county fair groups, livestock producers, and livestock showmen, the Osborne ACCU-ARM portable livestock scale makes the job of weighing animals a fast and easy process not only for animals, but those who care for them.
