ARGUS Welfare System
This is an absolute world-first that offers an as yet inestimable number of possibilities for welfare-friendly livestock-keeping systems. The in-house detection system, which works similar to a GPS system, enables you to locate the exact position of every single animal in group housing, whether it's swine, cattle, horses or other animals. Thanks to the individual position recognition feature, the animals are fed as required using the Compident electronic sow feeding system, selected and their group-typical or possibly atypical behaviour assessed. This makes it easier to identify sick or particularly aggressive animals so they can be selected automatically. This system sets a whole new standard in animal welfare control when keeping livestock in groups.
After many successful years of operation, Model VI has now been enhanced. All the tried-and-tested function sequences and details have been included and new product features geared towards user-friendliness and convenient service
One electronic sow feeding station can feed up to 80 sows individually. Thanks to the so-called boar identification function, sows on heat are pinpointed and selected. A new sensor automatically selects any animals in the group that either have a defective ear tag or have lost it. The Pig Manager Mobile, which has been developed to perfection, enables paperless and professional sow management in the unit.
SENSO / TABLA:
The proven, modern and high-performance models in the VISTA feeding computer series have been developed even further, now offering incredible user-friendliness through straightforward and intuitive operation
