Poultry feeding system with silo weighing

Dispenses large feed rations in a short time

A well organised feeding process offers countless advantages. Your animals are automatically fed the right portion of feed at the right time, and full data on stocks of feed and consumption is registered. This is valuable management data that will help you improve the feed conversion rate of your animals to tighten control of your farm's most important cost item – feed costs. 

In situations where you want to distribute large amounts of feed in a short space of time, such as in layer houses, you can opt for a silo weighing system where the silo is weighed using weighing bars or load cells. The feed is transported directly from the silo to the hoppers in the house, for an quick and efficient feeding process.

How does the Fancom silo weighing system work?

The Fancom silo weighing system ensures accurate control from silo to feeder. As the silo is weighed continuously, you can read out exactly how much feed is left in the silo at all times. A highly convenient and efficient method of stock management. Influences of temperature differences are compensated for by load cells, while software compensates for wind influences on the silo. That means the weight registered by the system is absolutely reliable.

Whether you apply an ad lib or restricted feed strategy, the feeding process is completely automatic. The system controls the discharge auger and weighs out the feed in the silo. The hoppers in the house are then filled, and finally the feed lines are activated to fill the feeders. The system features curve control so the feed ration can be automatically adapted daily. Simultaneous bulking and feeding is possible as this does not affect feed consumption registration.

Fancom’s silo weighing system controls one house with two silos on a single frame. When the silo is empty, the control computer automatically switches to another silo with the same feed type on a frame. The system even checks for signs of bridging in the silo.
