EuroTier: automatic feeding system wins gold medal
Four innovations at the upcoming EuroTier show, held
11-14 November in Hanover, Germany, have been awarded a gold medal by the
independent expert commission. One of these innovations is an automatic feeding
The Innovado from Dutch automated feeding company Schuitemaker is an
automatic feeder mixer wagon that removes feed from the clamp silo, mixes it,
drives it to the housing, distributes the feed there and returns to the silo,
all without an operator.
The route is pre-set via induction loops in the ground. The wagon is guided
by sensors, a gyroscope and laser. In the concept presented, the company
combines several known engineering elements to produce a device that allows
genuine automation of the complete feeding procedure from the clamp silo.
This can cut labour time requirements, secure work quality and optimise
feeding. The wagon can service several feed storage locations and supply
different animal groups in several housing facilities with different rations
round the clock.
It is thus also particularly suitable for growing farms. Safety is ensured
by a laser that scans the surroundings for persons, animals and objects that
should not come within the vicinity of the machine. If they do the feeder wagon
