Does anyone use this? We already have the davlec control box and display for our auger master feeders, so would only need to buy the readers and tags. Can it be set up to auto feed to yield? Any suggestions and input appreciated.

Yeah we feed to yield with davlec auto ID. Very good simple system with aerial on each cow manager space. Highly recommended, they are an excellent company. Buy direct from them if you can. Tags can be bought anywhere.

Thank you, do your milk metres connect to the feed system automatically, if so what make are they? We currently don’t have metres but we record once a month with manual hook on metres so was just planning on changing the feed rates each month after recording, untill we splash out on metres.

Also, would I need any extra software other than what I already have for my feeders? I will be speaking to them directly soon, but just wanted to learn a bit more about them. ?

@newholland could you give me a guide price as to what you paid please? We’ve got batch currently and feel some are doing better out of it than others. Anytime I’ve had prices from the big companies the cost far outways the benefits.

Scratch that I’ve found a quote I had and they’re website is most helpful. It seems to be the actual feeder unit not anything else that’s expensive. Has anyone managed to adapt batch feeders?

Thank you @newholland ? if anyone else has the davlec auto ID system please let me know what you think of it.
We’ve davlec out of parlour feeders in 6 years now, very reliable system, only issue we have is with new alflex Id tags, the reader recognises the tag is there but refuses to process the info regarding feed rates, when same info is loaded into an old tag there is no problems, very confusing

The 31 March deadline for responses to RABI’s Big Farming Survey is fast approaching and everyone linked to farming across England and Wales is being encouraged to take part.

“The support that we’ve received since the launch of The Big Farming Survey in January has been incredible. We’d like to thank everyone who has already completed the questionnaire or promoted the research project more widely,” says RABI’s Chief Executive, Alicia Chivers.

“However, the more comprehensive the data collected, the better the reflection on the daily realities of people from all sectors of agriculture and across all regions,” she adds. “We therefore want to hear from farmers, farm workers, contractors, spouses, adult-aged children and...
