1.2mm Stainless Steel trays cut and folded to suit your Rotary Platform.

Meal silos with 60 to 67 degree hopper bottoms.

 

PKE silos vibrators.

AP Flow Hammer to prevent feed bridging in the silo

Feedtech Roller mills.

System operation

A 2 way micro switch with roller arm comes into contact with the bail, which sends a signal to the auger system to run for a set time (timer set by farmer). The meal is released in front of each cow 2 x bails in from where the cow comes onto the platform.

The system is very simple to operate and is endorsed by farmers as maintenance free.

Features of the Control system

Feed control via Analogue Rotary Potentiometer for precise control of the feed dump and flexibility for changes to the feed time bandwidth. Standard default setting is 0-5 seconds.

External lockable handle on the control box for Isolation.

External motor overload reset.

Terminals in the control box for field control cables.

Feed dump counter complete with count reset.

Remote control capability includes:

  • System on/off control

  • Miss a Bale control

  • 50% more feed for identified bails

  • 50% less feed for identified bails

Platform reverse function – should the platform be reversed, the controller will count the bails from the last feed. Then when the platform is moved forward again, the bails are counted before feeding commences, thus avoiding bails getting a double dump of feed.

Option backing gate control to move the gate as the platform rotates.

Option molasses feed control via door mounted timer.

Option Empty Bail and 2nd time around sensors to eliminate feeding the bail twice or feeding an empty bail.

Multiple feed lines.

Supplied complete with limit switch.

 

 Herringbone Dairy Feeding Systems

dairy-feeding-systems

M350/90mm PVC Flex flo feed system is used to deliver the feed. The M350 system reduces run time (less wear) and moves PKE better than smaller systems. 

AP’s Econo-Drop feed dispenser is used which provides accurate control of feed delivery to your cows. Features include a simple front mounted adjustment, individual slide shut-off and transluscent body for visual confirmation of feed levels. Extra UV inhibators are used in the polypropylene blend.

Front mounted adjustement slide which allows precision, one-handed feed adjustment from 0.68kg to 5.44kg.

Individual slide shut-off.

Transluscent body allows visual confirmation of feed levels at a glance.

A simple weighted ball valve securely closes the feeder, and provides agitation as it is raised through the feed to insure feed flow when emptying.

The steep hopper slopes work together with the weighted ball valve to insure complete clean-out.

Econo-Drop feeders can be operated manually using either a lever or winch, or can be fully automated to provide unattended feedings.

All plastic construction, blow-molded from UV stabilized, clarified polypropylene, with stainless steel hardware.

1.2mm Stainless Steel trays cut and folded for the length of your Herringbone shed.

Meal silos with 60 to 67 degree hopper bottoms.

PKE silos vibrators.

AP Flow Hammer to prevent feed bridging in the silo.
