AutoSort Connect


AutoSort Connect

Automatic hog weighing and sorting

The AutoSort Connect System is designed to enhance profits by providing tools for maximizing scale use, optimizing food court space and feeding programs, and precisely marketing hogs.

AutoSort Connect significantly reduces labor costs and worker injuries by automatically sorting hogs according to weight ranges. There is no need for workers to guess or “eyeball” weights or direct hogs into separate pens.

Market Forecaster – a powerful tool

The Market Forecaster predicts how many hogs will be within specified weight ranges on selected dates and helps you decide when to change rations or ship hogs

Ensure that Enable OMNI Select in the Administration panel is Enabled.


Why is the Factory Default button is missing?

If you have the Enable OMNI Select option Enabled, then the Factory Default button is removed. To Factory Default the unit through the unit interface you must first Disable the Enable OMNI Select option.
