Load Cell and Weighing Equipment for Farming and Agricultural Applications

At Load Cell Central, we enable farms and agricultural facilities to incorporate accurate, load cell-based force measurement systems for data-driven productivity. By integrating our load cells and equipment into their processes, our customers gain visibility into daily operations such as: enabling yield monitoring, optimization of feed distribution, preventing overuse of materials, livestock weight monitoring, and more. 

By tracking changes via real-time readings, farms large and small can analyze growth rates, calibrate feeding, optimize storage, and make insight-based decisions for profitability. As a trusted provider of load cell technology, we offer customizable solutions to power sustainable agriculture.

Understanding the Agriculture Industry

Weighing and force measurement instrumentation play a pivotal role in agriculture. By closely monitoring animal weights, crop harvests, and feed ingredient mixing, farms can enhance yields, minimize losses, and ensure compliance. The nature of this industry demands the use of equipment that can withstand dust, debris, moisture, and varied weather conditions without compromising accuracy. At Load Cell Central, we offer load cells and electronics that are sealed to the level of ingress protection needed for the specific application, including explosion proof enclosures for electronics.

Weighing equipment used in farm settings face significant environmental hurdles. Force measurement systems must perform accurately and dependably in washdown areas, among livestock, in the presence of dust and debris, and in all weather conditions. Our rugged, adaptable load cell solutions account for all unique challenges to provide farmers with the information edge.

How We Serve the Agriculture Industry

Load Cell Central offers an extensive range of load cell products and customized solutions applicable across agriculture facilities.

Our precision load cells integrated into livestock scales facilitate regular animal weighing for health insights. The data further aids feed ratio calibration for optimized growth. Our load cells are also used in egg sorting machines that weigh over 25,000 eggs per hour. 

For crop farms, truck, tank, silo, and hopper load cells, provide reliable storage monitoring. Tracking inventory levels and calculating usage enables better planning around harvests, sales, and sustainability efforts.

With end-to-end technical guidance, we ensure seamless load cell integration with conveyor belts, mixers, silos, hoppers, and handling equipment. Our solutions empower informed farm management by delivering measurable improvements in efficiency and productivity.
