Roxell is launching a new Dos7® dispenser for sows
Roxell is launching a new Dos7® dispenser. This new premium dispenser has features to make farmers’ lives easier and feeding times calmer. Roxell’s innovation department focused on ensuring high precision feeding because this results in the absolute best sow condition and lower feed consumption. Roxell also made the dispenser easy to clean which increases the hygiene levels in the house and reduces the need for antibiotics. Durability and performance are key to this new design, as in all of Roxell’s systems. Discover a few of these features below.
In the insemination, gestation and farrowing houses, you can set the dispenser to follow a high precision (up to 0.1 liters) feeding regime of your choosing, with one or more feeding times per day. It can handle all types of feed, including treat foods and enrichment materials, such as wood pellets, to improve animal well-being. You can adjust the feed volume manually with the easy-to-read level slide. In the insemination and farrowing house, you can also control the feed volume automatically. In this case, you use software to set a feed curve per sow.
Inside the dispenser, a dump ball moves up and down to start and stop the feed flow. This motion also breaks up any clogged feed, so no residue is left behind. In addition, the shape of the reservoir guarantees 100 % feed outflow.
The Dos7 dispenser is easy to clean and dries quickly. All the joints are watertight, which prevents moisture from entering the central feed tube. The selected materials are resistant to disinfectants and cleaning agents and the level indicator always remains readable. In short, this dispenser is fully geared towards a hygienic process. Therefore, the Dos7 can help you to maintain an antibiotic-free farm.
"This model can be found at pig farms on all continents and has been used by many farms for decades now. This new Dos7 dispenser was built with the same philosophy because quality and durability are important values for us”.
