When cows are not resting, they should be eating! Feeding time can be stressful for cows, as the more dominant and competitive personalities within the herd can ‘bully’ their way ahead of the submissive cows. Installing the correct type of feed barrier in your shed can greatly assist with reducing stress in cows, whilst increasing feed intakes. A bad feed fence design can lead to lameness as the cow will push forward, against the fence, to access the feed which puts a lot of pressure on their legs.
This is why we have designed the award-winning Evolve feed fence that is a pioneering advance in animal feed systems. With the open-top, it is designed to extend the animal’s reach, allowing for increased feed intake, while optimising animal welfare and performance.
The EasyFeeder is an interlocking plastic feeding trough for cattle. The moulded, non-toxic and shatterproof plastic has a smooth, raised and sloped plastic surface.
As the feed is kept in the trough, the cows can’t push the feed away, resulting in less feed waste and labour managing this. This also means that the feed always remains in front of cattle resulting in increased feed intake. It is suitable for use with all diet feeders and mixer wagons.
Our Silage Pit Bags are an environmentally friendly alternative for covering the base layer of polythene on silage or maize pits. The innovative and unique design of the pit covers ensures clean water runoff and eliminates air pockets which give rise to waste and spoilage. There are also no labour costs associated with removing waste.
A typical 10m x 15m pit with 150mm of waste is the equivalent of losing 50 tonnes of valuable winter feed or €1,250. As our pit covers eliminate this, they have a fast return on investment with your money back in 1.5 years.
