AgriScot - 5000 Series Launch

Ritchey™ was once again exhibiting at AgriScot this year and very exciting it was, as we had a brand new product to show off.

As ever AgriScot proved to be an incredibly popular event, with a wide array of exhibitors showing off their latest and greatest products, and a hugely enthusiastic crowd coming to get their hands on the products on show and to attend the various seminars throughout the day (many of which were standing room only).

The main topics of conversation on the day seemed to be that of Electronic Identification and Electronic Weighing and Handling. We had a fantastic display inviting farmers to learn more about the benefits of using technology to aid managing their livestock through the use of; Tru-Test® Electronic Weighing Equipment, Prattley Animal Management Systems and Ritchey Electronic Identification (ID) Tags, to create a Complete Stock Management Solution.

We were also very pleased to be able to use AgriScot as the official UK launch of the NEW range of Indicator Weigh Scales from Tru-Test®, the hotly anticipated 5000 Series. These top of the range weigh heads replace the outgoing XR3000 and ID3000 models, improving further on what the old models did well, while adding a host of new features and functionality.

Not only was Tru-Test®'s incredibly talented research and development team involved in the design of the XR5000 and ID5000, but they were guided by the feedback of 700 farmers from across the globe. Meaning ultimately the 5000 Series was designed by farmers for farmers, making it easier than ever to use, while still offering unparalleled levels of accuracy, durability and data collection.

The impact made by the XR5000 we had on display was immediately reflected by it scooping second place in the new product competition, no mean feet with such an array of great products being displayed.
