The Biga Tub Future, with a capacity of 3 m3, is a mixing tub which is part of the Peecon Feed Master system. It’s an automatic feeding system which is completely custom made. The tub is sufficient for nice small portions, which are served several times a day. The mixing tub is filled from the feed stations (by freefall or conveyor belt). By means of a rail system the Biga Tub will find it’s way along the feed stations and the stable. This means the machine can never lose it’s way and power supply is guaranteed.
Feed stations are placed depending on the number of feeding types. A minimum of 1 feed station is required per product. The feed stations are filled with a silage cutter. This keeps the product fresh and prevents heating up. For several days feed can be placed in the feed stations. Therefore the cows get fresh and tasty feed every feeding round. The fresh feed ensures a better feed intake by the animals.
The Biga Tub Future runs as often as desired. This can be both in feeding and Butler mode. When in Butler mode, the machine pushes the feed to the through. The animals become more active, because they are fed several times a day.
When the correct feed per animal composition has been entered, it’s only necessary to indicate how many animals are in the stable. The number of animals can vary per day. By registering this correctly, the Feed Master system will feed the correct amount of feed for the number of animals in the stable. This prevents residual feed and will save on the feeding costs.
