International manufacturer of automated feeding, drinking, nesting and heating systems Roxell has announced the expanding of its range of MiniMax feeder pans
The MiniMax feeder pan aims to be adapted to the preferences and practices of each poultry farmer. The feeder pan therefore helps poultry farmers to grow more efficiently.
According to Roxell, the feed flow occurs according to a 360° principle, meaning that the pan fills consistently and evenly across the entire surface area. By adjusting the feed volume, the farmers can provide the right amount of feed. The broilers will, therefore, reach their end weights in a cost-effective way and the farmers will use precisely as much feed as needed.
“The size of the feed opening can be adjusted to the type of feed. There are three feed settings for adjusting the feed volume during a flock. With the control pan at the end of the feeding line, the feeding system can work fully autonomously and precisely. When the minimum or maximum level is reached, the pan sends feedback, which starts or stops the feed flow. The feed level in the control pan can be influenced with an LED light that attracts chickens to the end of the feeding line. The automatic MiniMax feeding system is reliable, without requiring any intervention from the poultry farmer,” the company stated.
Frank Hartmann, marketing manager at Roxell, added, “MiniMax already had an extensive set of functionalities and now we have added the modular structure to that. Specifically, you can choose to combine the MiniMax grill with either 10 or 14 feed openings with a shallow or deep bottom pan.”
