Rotary Feed Systems

Are you sick of paying for wasted feed in your paddocks?  Are your cows not getting enough nutrients in the paddocks to produce the quantity and quality of milk they should be?

A PPP Rotary Feed System offers many unique features for farmers to combat these issues:

Simple Single Cross Auger Feed Systems

The simple cross auger system blanket feeds set amounts to your cows. It dispenses feed straight from auger down a drop tube to the cow. With the simple cross auger system, you can alter feed dispensing times to change how much each cow is getting. This means that the three-phase motor is turned on and off for a pre-set amount of time for each bail. This is a very simple system and has a lot less componentry than other systems we do.

The simple cross auger system has an empty bail sensor so it won’t feed empty bales. It also has a second sensor to detect if the cows are going around a second time therefore not feeding them. This system also has the ability to recognise if the platform has been reversed so the control box wont double feed cows.

The simple cross auger systems controller is capable of adding on another three outputs of which can be either Feed, Molasses and or water. This controller also has the option for different feed quantities in a heard A and heard B setting. This allows you to feed your heifer heard and your MA heard at different rates at a flick of a switch.

Standard Features:

  • PLC control panel – allowing for additional inputs
  • Touch screen for easy adjustment rates
  • Stainless steel trays
  • Silo size to match cows numbers
  • In-line direct drive units
  • Reliable flexi-auger designed to feed PKE
  • Low maintenance
  • Auto miss feed for reversing platform, empty bail and cows going around twice

Additional Features:

  • Molasses injection
  • Water injection
  • Feed Dispenser
  • Double Feed Dispenser

    The Feed Dispenser & Auger Line System

    The feed dispenser and auger line system. The difference between a simple cross auger system and a feed dispenser and auger line system is;

    • With any simple cross auger system on the market, you can get variances in the amount of feed dumped to the cows.
    • A feed dispenser and auger line system will be 10-20% more precise in the delivery amounts of feed.

    Standard Features:

    • PLC control panel – allowing for additional inputs
    • Touch screen for easy adjustment rates
    • Stainless steel trays
    • Silo size to match cows numbers
    • In-line direct drive units
    • Reliable flexi-auger designed to feed PKE
    • Low maintenance
    • Auto miss feed for reversing platform, empty bail and cows going around twice

    Additional Features:

    • Molasses injection
    • Water injection
    • Feed Dispenser
    • Double Feed Dispenser

      The Double Feed Dispenser & Auger Line System

      A double feed dispenser and auger line system, will have the same benefits as the single feed dispenser system but will have the added benefits of being able to have two separate lines filling from two separate silos that fill their own respective dispenser that then gets funnelled into a chute and mixed together then fed to a cow. This means you can avoid the mixing costs of feed from the feed company’s and have special rations feed to different cows if you have protac.

      Standard Features:

      • PLC control panel – allowing for additional inputs
      • Touch screen for easy adjustment rates
      • Stainless steel trays
      • Silo size to match cows numbers
      • In-line direct drive units
      • Reliable flexi-auger designed to feed PKE
      • Low maintenance
      • Auto miss feed for reversing platform, empty bail and cows going around twice

      Additional Features:

      • Molasses injection
      • Water injection
      • Feed Dispenser
      • Double Feed Dispenser

        How Does a PPP Feed System Work?

        • Feed is conveyed from the silo into the shed via a coreless auger.
        • The coreless auger is driven by a direct drive unit.
        • The direct drive unit is mounted above the feed dispenser and drops feed into this dispenser.
        • The feed dispenser with it’s industrial variable speed motor rations feed out to each cow – this is the motor that will turn on/off for every cow.
        • When the feed dispenser is getting low in feed a capacitive sensor fitted into the dispenser sends a signal to the cross auger motor to start up and will turn off automatically when the feed dispenser is full
        • As each bale passes by the feed dispenser feed is rationed out to the cow
        • Detection sensors pick up empty bales and cows doing double laps on the platform and will automatically not feed meal - SAVING MONEY!
        • If molasses and water injection are added on as options, these are controlled by the PLC unit.
        • The touch screen control unit allows the farmer to very easily make feed rate adjustments and importantly allows a very high degree of accuracy compared to anything else on the market.
