GEA FRone - Automated feed pusher: Less work. Greater yields.

Never spend time manually pushing feed again!

Intelligent technology is attractive, especially when it makes your work easier and saves valuable time. The fully automated feed pusher, FRone, by GEA moves feed towards the feed fence at the times you define and according to the routes you set. This ensures that your cows have access to fresh, high-quality feed around the clock – even lower-ranking animals in the second feeding group.

Precise processes ensure optimum feed utilization

The GEA FRone combines tried and tested technology with maximum precision and reliability. Regularly pushing the feed forward ensures your animals can get the most out of the nutrition you provide – a welcome cost saving for your business.

Simple programming

The handy remote control enables you to quickly and easily program a 24 or 48-hour cycle of routes and start times to suit you and your animals. And you can configure as many different routes as you like. There is also an additional option to clean the feed alley passageway.

Smart drive improves reliability

If, for whatever reason, the amount of feed in front of the feed fence is more than expected, the GEA FRone can handle this. The FRone will reduce speed, thus creating more pushing power and will then move sidewards to avoid any blockages.
