The FS»Touch is designed to meet the needs of both the manager level feeder and the fully supervised feeder. Manager level feeders have the power of Feed Supervisor®Software on the go. Change cow numbers, adjust percent dry matter, view previous days feeding, and record inventory counts — right from the tractor cab. Wirelessly transfer data on your farm’s Wi Fi connection or use a portable USB data stick for a low cost data transfer solution. The Clean Up Optimizer function automatically adjusts remaining ration weight based on clean up pounds available. Bale Balancer does the same for rations that add a full big bale into the mix. Set mix times for individual ingredients or the whole ration. The batch preview screen shows you the weight of small inclusion ingredients before you start mixing. Managers can view live mixing information when a wi-fi connection is available.
English or Spanish languages available.
Feed Supervisor System Options Illustration
"“I purchased big square bales of hay from South Dakota and I had fed it for two days. Feed Supervisor showed me that dry matter intakes dropped drastically and we lost 8000 lbs. of milk for those two days. The only feed change was the new hay. After testing and investigating the new hay, we found out that it had a 1.4 million mold count. Turns out, the hay supplier had unwrapped old, wet round bales from last year, and baled them into square bales with some new hay from this year. If it wasn’t for Feed Supervisor, we wouldn’t have noticed the changes in DMI and milk loss so quickly. I would have ended up feeding the hay for a lot longer period of time. Feed Supervisor saved the herd from a huge income loss and all kinds of health issues associated with feeding a high mold count hay!”"
"When we installed FS Touch at our dairy, we set it up with the ingredient advance delay. It lets our operator manually advance to the next ingredient, but locks him out if the scale senses a weight change. We had our suspicions that he was advancing to the next ingredient while he was still dumping in feed with the payloader. This proved to us that our suspicions were true. When we presented our data to him, he admitted what he was doing. We were able to stop the bad habit without losing a valuable member of our team."
