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.
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.
