FeedWatch Sales & Support

FeedWatch is an extremely effective way to improve and optimize on-farm TMR feeding in an accurate and consistent manner. Often overlooked, this final step in cow nutrition carries an impact in the tens of thousands of dollars per year.

From the developers of DairyComp 305, FeedWatch software is designed from a philosophy of flexibility while maintaining complete analytical ability. Using an industrialized mixer scale indicator made by Avery Weigh-Tronix, and an ultra-bright LED external display, the software will monitor feed usage, sales, purchasing, animal intakes and cost.

Other features include export files for consultants, graphing, customizable reports, user security levels, chemistry levels, current and forecasting inventories.

FeedWatch works with mixer trucks and wagons, or with stationary mixers and delivery trucks.

Dynamic Scheduling

FeedWatch dynamically schedules all of your loads. Don't waste your time figuring what each load should be - let the power of FeedWatch do it for you.

"Set it and forget it". Once you give FeedWatch the basics of how to feed your herd, it will automatically create and schedule your loads to maximize the capacity of your mixer.

Feedwatch will automatically size loads according to the mixer's capacity. If your main mixer goes down, any size mixer can take its place without any hassles.

DairyComp 305 Integration

FeedWatch uses a direct connection to the DairyComp 305 database to automatically update your pen counts for each of the pens. Not only will you have access to the pen counts but you will also be able to bring your milking information from your parlor program. FeedWatch will give you a complete dairy report so you can easily analyze your production vs. cost of your milking herd.

Ingredient Mix Timers

Ingredient mix timers allow you to have full control over the mixture of the ration. Some ingredients need longer mixing times, just increase the delay time before the next ingredient.

Simple Reporting

User-friendly report and graph writer makes it easy for you to access and generate any report you need. From inventory reports for your lender to usage reports by pen types, all can be generated with just a couple mouse clicks. Also you can schedule any custom report to automatically print reports, graphs or both by any duration (hours, days, weeks, months, etc.) you wish.

Weather-Resistant Equipment
