Tri­oliet tar­gets large herds with new feeder

Irish Independent - Farming - - MACHINERY -

A NEW se­ries of Solomix diet feed­ers is be­ing in­tro­duced at EuroTier by Dutch man­u­fac­turer Tri­oliet aimed at large dairy herds of over 180 cows.

The new Solomix 3 ma­chines have a ca­pac­ity of 27, 30 and 34 cu­bic me­tres and are be­ing de­vel­oped in ad­di­tion to the cur­rent se­ries of Tri­oliet three auger mixer feed­ers.

Tra­di­tion­ally, the demand for the larger three auger feed­ers has been con­cen­trated in North Amer­ica, where in­tense feed­ing of up to 12 hours per day is com­mon, but cur­rent in­ter­est has also been shown from Europe, South Africa, New Zealand and Aus­tralia on a sim­i­lar ca­pac­ity feed­ing ma­chine.

Larger dairy farms in Europe and else­where with over 180 cows pre­fer to feed their cows one or two mixes per day due to short­ages in labour avail­abil­ity.

In or­der to meet the de­mands of these farms, Tri­oliet has ex­tended its pro­gram three auger mix­ers with three dif­fer­ent mod­els.

The Solomix 3 New Edi­tion se­ries is a low-pro­file ma­chine which is eas­ier to load and suits low sheds. The mod­els are avail­able with a num­ber of dis­charge op­tions; side doors, con­veyor belt at the front or (ad­justable) chain con­veyor at front.

Prices for the new Solomix 3 Se­ries start at €68,000 for the smaller model.
