Feed Management Solutions
The better your feed conversion, the higher your profitability.
Trimble’s livestock feed management solutions include:
Trimble’s S1100-A scale system can help farmers accurately weigh and measure feed, hay bales, and stock items that are handled via tractor or skid steer. With weight measurements available to the operator in the cab, farmers can better control the quality, quantity, and cost of hay bales and other stock materials in their operations.
Guidance and Steering
Trimble assisted or automated steering systems enable hands-free guidance allowing you to operate efficiently and extend your operating hours. No matter the size of farm, Trimble offers a steering system that fits your needs.
Reduce driver fatigue by taking the hassle out of steering the tractor
Eliminate skips and overlaps ensuring even coverage without doubling up in any areas
Create uniform rows that will allow the crop to wilt evenly for the best quality
GreenSeeker® crop sensing system and GreenSeeker handheld crop sensor can effectively and precisely manage crop inputs on-the-go. With GreenSeeker, you can address field variability by applying the right amount of fertilizer, in the right place, at the right time.
Use fewer inputs which reduces costs
Eliminate guesswork of required nitrogen after manure applications
Generate NDVI maps that correlate closely to potential yield which is valuable for budgeting feed requirements.
Trimble’s Irrigate-IQ™ precision irrigation solution can precisely apply the right amount of water, fertigation, or effluent in the right place to ensure you’re doing what’s best for your crop, while minimizing nutrient and chemical runoff.
Use water efficiently to improve quality of feed
Create no spray and variable rate irrigation areas for applying the right amount of water in the right place
Dispose of effluent safely while nurturing your field
Accurately steer your chopper with advanced steering capabilities from Trimble, even in areas where the planter drifted. Use additional row guidance to chop in difficult conditions such as down maize/corn, long passes, and poor visibility.
Efficient cutting of crop
Minimize passes which reduces cost
Improve the quality of feed
Trimble’s Connected Farm™ solution allows you to collect, share, and manage information using computers, tablets, and smartphones. Data also sends to Farm Works Software® so that you can view your cost per acre or per head of livestock.
Save time by avoiding USB drives for data transfer
Transfer data wirelessly between the field and office such as yield and as-applied application maps
Use rainfall data to make informed decisions for chopping and other farming operations
As you continue to grow your farming business and cover more acres, fleet management is vital during the busiest times of the year such as forage harvesting. Trimble’s Connected Farm solution can help manage your fleet and provide information to improve efficiency and productivity.
