InTouch and the KEENAN controller

A number of new features combine to make the KEENAN controller one of the most advanced, intuitive and easy-to-use feed management tools in the marketplace. Fitted to the mixer wagon, the 8-inch colour display is designed to allow for the clearest display, no matter what weather conditions are present. Equipped with 4G capability, this allows for rapid transfer of data, such as ration ingredients and mixing time, to and from the controller. Up to 99 individual diets can be pre-programmed on the controller, facilitating effective management of large groups of different animals.
