Automatic Feeding DairyFeed C 8000

Targeted automated feeding with the DairyFeed C 8000 feed system

Automated feeding is becoming increasingly important in the agricultural industry. Thanks to GEA's expertise, you can feed each cow individually. Needs-based adjustments will have a positive effect on your herd management and help you to develop an efficient working style. Automated feeding is the key to the positive development of your herd. Here, you'll find an overview of the main advantages and characteristics of the DairyFeed C 8000 automated feed system:

  • Thanks to animal identification and the automated feeder, each cow is fed individually depending on its yield and physical condition
  • The feeding system's volume dispenser enables you to ration exact quantities in accordance with the individual cow's requirements
  • You are able to create summary lists for individual rations and consumption figures
  • Rationing can be adjusted both automatically and manually

The feeding system also increases cow comfort: Automated feeding helps you to avoid over- or under-feeding your herd and also reduces metabolic problems.

Automated feeding for a variety of different types of feed

The DairyFeed C 8000 automated feeder takes the latest nutritional developments into account. Sensors in the feeding box help to recognize and identify each individual cow. The boxes are equipped with high-quality stainless steel feeding basins. The type and presentation of the feed and the portion size make no difference to the function. No matter what the consistency, sophisticated volume dispensers measure the feed out exactly. The automated feed system is particularly flexible and sustainable: With the DairyFeed C 8000 automated feeders, you can distribute up to four different types of feed.

Optimizing automatic feeding: Working in conjunction with the DairyManagementSystem 21

With automated feeding you are able to reduce the amount of time needed for routine work in the long term. Two main components contribute to this function: DairyPlan C21 and the DairyFeed C 8000 automatic feed concentrate dispenser. DairyPlan C21 calculates the feed allocation for each cow and transmits this data to the automated feeders. An overview of the advantages of the DairyFeed C 8000 and the DairyManagementSystem 21 are:

  • Automatic feeding based on nutritional principles using a dynamic interval system
  • Also suitable for situations in which regular feeding times are not possible
  • Daily rations are easy to enter as desired
  • Automatic feeding based on milk yield

GEA's automated feeder helps to minimize disputes over food

Automatic feeding saves both time and effort. The DairyFeed C 8000 also reduces feeding disputes among your cows. Here, the design is key: The long, sealed feeding boxes come either as single, double or wall boxes. This prevents boss cows or cows in heat from disrupting the controlled feeding process and causing accidents. No matter what the model, the more relaxed atmosphere will improve your herd's throughput.
