The FeedStation Walk-Through extended from Hanskamp is unique in terms of welfare, sustainability and cow comfort: walk in and out going forwards, reduce stress and injuries, optimal cow flow, ergonomic and cow friendly design.
Many feeding stations require cows to exit backwards. Cows outside the feed station regularly bump into them, damaging their udders and legs. A cow entering the herd backwards cannot defend itself and suffers stress as a result. Also, the claws are often unnecessarily stressed by the turning movement the cow makes to leave the feeding station.
The FeedStation Walk-Through extended has an entrance and exit so the cow can follow its natural path and always move forward. On the entrance side there is a anti bulling gate (L’port) which will close after the first portion of feed is dropped in the trough. After finishing the last portion the cow can walk out forward and next cow can come in.
The open feature of the FeedStation Walk-Through extended ensures each cow keeps in contact with the herd and can see from each other how it works. When a cow walks out of the FeedStation through the front, another cow can walk in from the back thus giving optimal cow traffic.
On the Walk-Through extended FeedStation you can go up to 4 different feed sorts and a liquid feed. The feeders can be linked with every feeding computer in the market or customers can choose for the Hanskamp Spider feeding computer. The Spider system can read 95% of the tags in the market also ear tags FDX and HDX.
