Feedlogic introduces FeedSaver
Feedlogic Corporation, a leading supplier of swine
nutrition technology, has introduced FeedSaver, a new product line designed to
reduce production costs and maximize profitability for producers of all types
The FeedSaver incorporates key features of its precision feeding
technology first introduced in 2002, as well as new features which provide
producers greater control over outcomes in production systems.
â€œWe made it simple on the outside, but very powerful
on the inside,â€ said Feedlogic president and founder Drew Ryder. â€œIn addition to
delivering the exact diet needed for optimal growth, FeedSaver provides
producers with the information they need to make important production decisions
and to take rapid action.â€
FeedSaver includes a new feature which allows rapid
adjustments in feeding strategies to manage specific challenges such as disease
and to gain maximum value from feed ingredients. The FeedSaver system will
automatically monitor feed intake and can optimize nutrition to a group of pigs
in response to variations in intake and growth.
â€œMany hog producers are currently missing
opportunities for cost savings,â€ Ryder added. â€œIn finisher barns, it could be $6
to $10 per pig in areas such as feed wastage, poor feed efficiency, slow growth,
and sort loss. In sow barns, it could be as high
as $100 per sow per year in poorer productivity, higher replacement rates, and lower
â€œWith FeedSaver, we provide producers with a way to
identify the higher cost and waste areas in specific parts of their production
system and let automated technology make the necessary adjustments to ensure the
â€œProducers have come
to accept that their staff can only manage day-to-day production at a very basic
level - making sure pigs get feed, water, and proper ventilation. To achieve
long-term profitability, producers must adopt on-farm technologies like
FeedSaver,â€ Ryder said.
FeedSaver allows large producers and
integrators to better understand and control their supply chain and according to
Ryder, corporate managers and executives will have access to extensive data on
feed consumption in each barn on a constant basis.
