    Optimise milk yields for less...


    Reduce feed costs... are you interested?

    The Dairymaster FeedRite OptiFeeder Out of Parlor Feeder allows you to optimise milk yield and herd health while reducing feed costs and avoiding over feeding by feeding to individual requirements. The unit provides a comfortable and convenient feeding environment for selected cows.

    The OptiFeeder has been designed to dispense feed to cows throughout the day where there is a continuous requirement to individually feed concentrates. Feeding cows individually based on milk yield and lactation promotes better milk yield, fertility and the general health of the animals. It also reduces the cost of expensive feeds by avoiding over feeding.

    Excellent build quality...

    All parts of the OptiFeeder that are in contact with concentrates are manufactured from stainless steel. The OptiFeeder is completely corrosion resistant which is a big advantage particularly where minerals are dispensed in the feed. The hopper incorporates the proven dispensing technology utilised in our in parlor feeders. The dispensing mechanism accurately meters the amount of feed dispensed. Each motor has its own in-built overload protection which activates if a foreign material obstructs its operation.


    Accurately identify and feed each individual cow!

    When the cow visits the OptiFeeder Dairymaster identification technology is at work as the system utilises an electronic ear tag to accurately identify each cow. Her specific feeding regime details are retrieved and feeding commences if adequate time has elapsed since the last visit and feeding is scheduled. The presence of the cow in the feeding station is monitored constantly and feed is dispensed only when the cow is present. In the event of a cow missing one of her feeding periods, the amount of feed missed will be divided up and dispensed between the remainder of her feeding periods. Because the system utilises the Milk Manager it allows control of both in parlor and out of parlor feeding from within the same programme. In addition the system can be configured to feed 3 different feed types. Feed stations may be installed individually or in groups depending on building layout.

    Easily calculate feed amounts...

    The system uses data already in the Milk Manager for determining the amount to feed each cow. Feed amounts may be calculated based on user defined feed levels, feeding to yield, body weight or stage of lactation. The dispensing of this amount of feed may be distributed over different feeding periods throughout the day. The benefit of this approach is that cows generally consume their total allocated feed and any unconsumed feed is distributed throughout the remainder of the day.

    Out of parlor feeders allow feeding to be controlled accurately and conveniently. Since feed is one of the main inputs on any farm it is of utmost importance to use your feed efficiently and effectively.

    Feeding is one of the most important elements in achieving best herd performance. The Dairymaster out of parlor feeding system is an ideal tool to help you achieve your goals.
