It remixes feed before moving it onto the feeding table.

The first DeLaval Optiduo in Northern Ireland has been supplied by Stephen Moore Farm Machinery to a farm in recent days.

DeLaval OptiDuo makes sure cows always have access to refreshed feed. Its technology allows remixing feed before moving it onto the feeding table.

With its twin-spiralled rotating auger and adaptive drive function, all kinds of feed are repositioned onto the feeding table filling any gaps and ensuring that the strands of roughage remain intact.

This means that lower ranked cows are not pushed to empty positions, reducing the competition and stress at the feeding table.

"Technology such as this has the potential to ensure that dairy cows have continual access to a well-mixed diet.”

“This should not only help to ensure maximal dry matter intake, but also help minimize feed sorting and allow cows to use their time more efficiently. This leaves more time for lying down and ruminating", says

Concentrate Dispenser

DeLaval OptiDuo has the option to add a concentrate dispenser. It can also automatically handle different amounts of feed as well as several feed types, including any kind of total mix ration (TMR), straw, hay or fresh grass.

Additionally, the DeLaval OptiDuo can be used in a wide range of situations, including barns with 5% slopes and different width alleys, as well as on farms with multiple barns.

DeLaval OptiDuo has been designed with simple maintenance in mind. There are few parts that need to be changed, with no requirement for greasing.

It is also available with DeLaval InServiceTM program, a solution where service, consumables, advisory and everything in between is available.

Benefits:

  • Improved productivity – more frequent and higher feed intake, more milk, 24/7 feed availability;

  • Increased work efficiency – saves times, reduces workload, adaptive drive: handles different feed types and volumes automatically;

  • Improved animal welfare – cows visit the feeding table more often, better cow traffic, less competition at the feeding table.
