Increased interest in automated cattle feeding

The use of automatic feeding systems is advancing in cattle. But what degree of automation is expedient?

At this year’s EuroTier, DLG together with exhibitors are organising the Special “Automated cattle feeding – From silo to rumen”. The different technical solutions will be presented in a practical environment, including live demonstrations. This will give visitors the opportunity to inspect the modes of operation of the systems in detail.

The focus will be on different solutions for feeding grass and maize silage, as well as hay/straw and mineral feed or feed concentrate. Both the mixing operation and delivery of the mixture to the feeding table can be followed.

Alongside the technical demonstrations, information islands will be set up on the topics of “animal welfare”, “environment”, “costs” and “feeding management”, staffed by experts from the sectors of consultancy, science and research, and industry.
