Dispenses small feed rations very accurately

A major cost item on your farm is feed. So it’s no surprise that managing feed costs efficiently is a particular focus area. An automatic feeding system helps you to accurately control the amount of feed given. Feed, water and light are synchronised under all circumstances to promote optimal animal growth. The feed composition can be easily adapted to suit the animals' needs, This saves time and helps you keep the cost price of feed and the production results under control.

How does a feed weigher work?

A feed weighing system uses an electronic feed weigher positioned between the silo and the hoppers in the house to accurately dispense small feed rations. The system accurately controls the entire process, from preparing the feed in the batch weigher, filling the hoppers in the house right up to supplying the feeding lines in the house. 

The storage hoppers in the house are filled with feed. As soon as the feeding process starts, the feed is transported from the hoppers to the animals. At the same time, a new portion of feed is prepared in the feed weigher, based on the number of grams per animal per day. This can also be prepared the right mixing ratio if you wish. If one of the silos empties during feed preparation, the system automatically switches to the other silo containing the same type of feed. The daily amount of feed and the mixing ratio can be pre-set in a feed curve. 

A manual operation unit (optional) allows you to operate the feeding system by hand should a malfunction unexpectedly occur. This safeguards the feed supply to your animals in all circumstances.

A suitable feed weighing system for every house 

As each house is different, feed weighers also offer a range of applications. Is your preference unlimited feed supplies with clear consumption registration or is feed rationed to enable accurate weight based control? Or would you rather cut feed costs by home mixing? Fancom offers a suitable concept for every situation.. Independent to the chosen feeding system, the feed installation ensures the animals are supplied with the right amount of feed at the right moment.

EasyBlend controls one or two houses with a maximum of three silos and registers the consumption of five different feed types.

BreederBatch is a batch weighing system especially for houses with parent animals where males and females are fed separately. Simply enter the number of males and females once, and how the feed should be distributed. The computer will calculate the distribution of all the feed over the various hoppers in the house during the entire rearing cycle.

Fancom supplies complete installations, including all the peripheral equipment such as weighers and feed mixers. All the component parts are selected for reliability, high quality and functionality so that you can rely on years of trouble-free operation from your Fancom feeding systems.
