Product Overview

Used for measuring individual feed intake/efficiency, the SmartFeed bunks are easy to install with virtually no changes required in pen infrastructure and no additional investments required for on farm IT/computer/software.

The SmartFeed system integrates the best RFID, load cell and feed bin technology to continuously log data to determine the feed intake per visit per animal, ultimately allowing you to make informed decisions regarding the feed efficiency of your herds genetics.

The system is modular, portable, and easy to install. Add additional SmartFeed units to your existing system at any time or move units to different locations easily. The only external wire is for AC power with options to power with solar for completely wireless and portable applications.

Each SmartFeed unit transmits data independently, using either a WiFi or cellular network, to a cloud-based server, and is accessible in real-time from your desktop or smart device. In the event a connection is lost, the data will be stored on the unit until the connection is re-stored, or alternatively is retrieved with a USB connection.

SmartFeed can alert the user when specific animals have either low feed consumption, or do not visit after a certain time period so that problems with individual animals can be addressed quickly.
