Success with KEENAN Approved diet feeder
Richard Armstrong runs a mixed dairy and beef enterprise, along with his father and brothers, in Cookstown, Co. Tyrone. His dairy herd consists of Holstein-Friesian cows, which are housed year-round. He also finishes Hereford offspring, along with a number of bought-in cattle.
Last year, Richard noticed increased sorting of silage, leading to unnecessary feed waste. To improve usage of his homegrown feed, Richard decided to purchase a KEENAN Approved-used diet feeder that yielded great results.
- Higher feed intakes
- Improved body condition
- Less feed wastage
- Reduced cost
- Consistent ration mix
- Fewer days to finish
- Exact feed per head tracked (InTouch)
- No overfeeding
- Lower feed cost
KEENAN Approved-used diet feeders are fully refurbished machines that have undergone detailed reconditioning in the KEENAN factory (e.g. shot-blasted, painted, fitted with heavy-duty top knives, body blades, paddle rubbers and seals).
MAKING FEEDING EASIER
Richard’s rations consist of homegrown grass silage, barley, a balancer premix and AlltechMycosorb®.
“The KEENAN six-paddle system, supported by the InTouch nutritional team, ensures a consistent ration, making it easy to achieve the same mix quality every day, with less feed wastage.”
