Monitoring the Bunk: A Bunk Scanning Demonstration

There’s a new bunk scanner algorithm in town and it is set to improve your feed allocating decisions.

This session will feature the latest in bunk scanning technology from Manabotix, with Managing Director Dr Stuart McCarthy on the tools, joined by Teys Australia – Condamine Feedlot Manager, Phil Lambert, who has put it through its paces already.

Delegates will get a first-hand experience in seeing how the technology works and gain an understanding of the data captured by the Bunk Scanner and how it can improve your feed allocating decisions.

Ongoing industry investment by Meat & Livestock Australia in this feedlot-specific technology has assisted in bringing the new generation Bunk Scanner system to market. The interactive demonstration will discuss the new allocation algorithms, alongside display outputs from the live Bunk Scanner.

Delegates will also hear first-hand from lot feeder, Phil Lambert, about his experience with these technologies, including sharing benefits realised from monitoring and adjusting cattle feeding with increased accuracy and repeatability.

What could you gain by getting that bunk read accuracy on point?
