The early introduction of concentrate feed speeds growth of the young calves and replaces milk, which is the most expensive feed, sooner. The concentrate feeding system DairyFeed J 1000 offers an ideal extension to GEA Farm Technologies calf feeders. In conjunction with the DairyManagementSystem 21, it ensures an carefully calculated and precisely metred allocation of concentrate based on the age and weight of the animal. The feed is allocated from a 110-lire capacity concentrate feed hopper via an exact volume doser.
A light sensor controls and regulates the food quantity and ensures that refilling only takes place after complete emptying of the stainless steel pan. Irregularities in food intake are quickly recognized, thus ensuring that the likelihood of infection within the herd is lowered. In this way concentrate feed intake can also be used to control liquid feed supply.
