Feed trough to ensure optimal feed allocation
Calves in group penning can be fed with feed in troughs - available in different sizes (80 cm, 120 cm, 160 cm and 200 cm), adapted to the number of animals and their size. The troughs are made of brown plastic with cast hinges, providing the trough to be hung on 2" pipes - at the front of the group penning.
For bigger calves and youngstock, the feed can advantageously be delivered in a large green plastic trough with a capacity of 180 liters, ensuring that the animals have a sufficient amount of feed available 24 hours a day. The trough is able to be hinged on the front rail, which is easy to be moved when the animals are herded into and out of the pen.
The troughs' roundings enable easy cleaning. The design of trough helps to minimize feed wastage as the high front edge of the trough catches feed that the calves spill when they are munching. This feature optimises feed utilisation which benefits the production economy.
Flex auger system
Jyden's flex auger system can be adjusted to both vertical and horizontal transport of feed supply. The closed pipes of stainless steel or PVC ensures a hygienic and convenient transportation system. The flex auger can turn around in an angle up to 90° within a distance of three metres, making it advantageous for corner constructions. With an extra station, the flex auger can be extended without maximum length, creating an great flexibility of the system.
The flex auger can be mounted by wires at the ceiling thereby providing significant space saving. Generally, the flex auger has low installation and maintenance costs, making the transport system a profitable and reliable solution.
The maximum length of the flex auger is 80 metres which is reduced by 0.2 metres per degree / bending. The flex auger is available in different types – for the type 55-75-90, the PVC pipes can be replaced with galvanized / stainless steel pipes. Flex auger can also be supplied with a stainless steel spiral, inlets and outlets, axles and food approved pipes.
The fiberglass silo is produced in two moulded halves that are bolted together. The inside surface is smooth which prevents feed from snagging or building up on the inside walls. There is a separate air inlet and outlet, which is taken to the ground, meaning that the feed dust is not on top of the silo.
The conical bottom of the silo is very steep and slippery and with an angle 77°, feed bridging is avoided - resulting in the feed quality is being maintained whilst and the feed hygiene remains high.
It is possible to connect the silo with various stations or flex augers, and there is also a wide range of accessories such as outlet filters, galvanized inspection hatch and rain cover for the station.
