MSc Topic: "Drystock walkover weighing."
My thesis research is to investigate the possibility of adapting Gallagher's existing DairyScale to weigh dry stock.
The algorithm in the DairyScale was designed to weigh moving dairy cows. I am investigating the possibility of using this product for dry stock, because the behaviour patterns of the animals are different. This may involve adjusting the algorithm which is used to calculate the estimated actual weight of the animal.
