What does a Tare Weigher do?

Weighs sample quantities of product received by establishment for processing, removes tare, and reweighs and records weight of usable product for payment or quality control purposes: Selects specified sample of unprocessed product, such as sugar beets, tobacco leaves, and slaughtered poultry, weighs sample on scale, and records weight. Washes off, strips, trims, or otherwise removes unusable portions of product, such as stems, caked dirt, and spoiled sections. Reweighs sample and records weight. May compute tare in pounds or as percentage of original weight. May prepare and attach weight and identification tickets to product. May send sample to laboratory for analysis.
