"What a powerful tool for monitoring feed performance! My new feeder had some real problems with accuracy. By using his accuracy report to show him where he needed improvement, he moved his error percentage from 6% to 2%. That is the difference between acidosis and good cow health."

Feed Center Efficiency

The feed center is the source of the dairy's largest expense. Managing is correctly will give you the fastest and largest returns. Besides design and layout of the actual commodity area, monitoring what goes on consistently and accurately will have a direct impact on your profits. There are many critical variables to monitor in the feed center:

  • Understand your Load times. (start to finish)
  • Track the performance of your feeders. (How accurate and consistent are they? How efficient is loading and unloading? Is the delivery to the pens timely? Are the mixing times consistent?)
  • Evaluating the delivered ration. (Is it mixed correctly?)
  • Monitoring feed inventory and feed shrink.

Bunk Management

Bunk management is simply matching the amount of feed delivered to the amount of feed cattle can handle. For many, this is a gut feeling system and becomes more of an art than a science. Although the art of bunk management takes experience, using technology can reduce and simplify the need for experience.

  • Use accurate previous intakes to make predictions for the future by recording refusal, weather patterns, and appetite adjustments.
  • Adjustments are tracked on a per pen basis.
  • Previous day targets are validated (to account for incomplete data).
  • Creates consistency and accountability for feeders.

  • Weigh ingredients at purchase for accurate starting inventories
  • Understand where shrink occurs by evaluating losses.
  • Know the habits of feeders such as travel speeds and overfilling mixers.
  • Keep accurate pen counts and intake measurements to reduce refusal.
  • Profile bunks for optimal feeding schedules.
