The feed kitchen is the room where the feed is stored, selected, picked up, and loaded into the mixing and feeding robot. The crane assembly with feed grabber installed in the feed kitchen moves back and forth above the feed, and picks it up as required. In the feed kitchen, the various types of feed can be easily separated and supplemented. There is also space for a mineral dispenser or additives, if these have to be added to the ration.
Depending on weather conditions and the size of the feed kitchen, you can store up to 3 days of feed. The feed kitchen has enough space for any desired feed strategy, and can be extended as a farm grows. Lely Technical Service Support consultants give advice on how to convert existing areas in livestock farms into feed kitchens.
