Measurement products and services for operational efficiency

Livestock operations face many challenges:

  • Competition for land, energy and water
  • Pushes for increased production and higher productivity
  • Waste reduction and process improvement initiatives

As a result, livestock production is becoming more sophisticated than ever.  Innovations in feed, health, genetics and breeding are allowing more cost-effective operations on a larger scale.  Cross can help livestock producers collect data, monitor waste and ensure operational efficiency.

From inbound truck scales weighing feed and other raw materials to hopper scales to temperature monitoring systems, Cross has you covered for new products.  And anything we sell, we can calibrate, ensuring your equipment is reading correctly no matter how harsh the environment.

Cross can also help you turn your measurement data into actionable production information with a custom engineering solution.  Whether it’s weight, temperature, pressure or another parameter, our engineering team designs easy-to-use solutions perfectly tailored to your particular needs.

Did you know... the precision measurement group at Cross was founded in 1939 by our current CEO's grandfather, Jim King. That's a whole lot of calibration!
Did you know... A fingerprint weighs about 50 micrograms. We know, we weighed it! The residue left from a finger can actually make a difference in weight results which is why we wear gloves when we calibrate weights. For reference, a sheet to paper is about 4.5 grams, that’s 4.5 million micrograms.
Did you know… Cross Company is an ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan). Our ESOP started in 1979 and as of 2006, we are a 100% employee owned! Learn more about our ESOP and how that benefits both team members and our customers.
