Fullwood Showcase New Feeding Precision Technology

27 November 2012

GLOBAL - Fullwood has announced the launch of its next generation out-of-parlour feeder, showcasing the design at AgriScot Edinburgh on November 21 where they claimed it offered improved levels of feed management for greater feeding efficiency and reduced feed wastage.

John Baines, Technical Director for Fullwood Limited, announced the launch of the company’s latest out-of-parlour feeder. “Following a thorough programme of on-farm testing, Fullwood is pleased to announce the launch of its next generation of out-of-parlour feeder,” Mr Baines explained.

“The latest model of our proven feeders has been developed with one key priority: to improve feeding precision and efficiency.”

  • Fixed Feeding – each cow receives a fixed amount of feed;
  • Target Feeding – the volume of feed can be increased or decreased in fixed steps over a pre-determined number of days;
  • Kgm + Curve Feeding – the amount of feed is automatically adjusted to each individual cow’s current milk yield;
  • External Feeding – the out-of-parlour feeder is controlled by Fullwood’s Crystal herd management software.

“The new Fullwood feeders are fully programmable, easy to install and simple to maintain,” Mr Baines added.

“They are also fully adjustable to suit all breeds of dairy cow and offer five different feed regimes which enable producers to determine how closely each cow’s individual dietary intake is controlled.”
