Alternative system solutions for handling different recipes in feed circuits.

Depending on feeding strategy, mix of herd and recipes, you will always have an optimum feed solution for your herd with the Multifeeder 5000. Depending on need, you can choose amongst a normsystem, a phase feeding system or one of our solutions for emptying the circuit pipes and mix-tank.


The normsystem is understood as the traditional way in which a liquid feeding system is installed. The feed remains in the pipe between feedings. In this type of system, the Multifeeder 5000 can calculate the quantity of the individual components resting both in the mixing-tank and in all parts of the pipe-system. Thus the system is capable of compensating the various recipes. Depending on the present conditions under which mixing can take place, an optimal feed mix will be reached.

Multifeeder 5000 will always inform you exactly what is being feed and automatically adjust itself for changes in feed value and contents of liquid.


The basic principle in a phase-feeding system is that 2 separate mixing-tanks individually make up a recipe with a high, respectively low content of protein.

From each mixing-tank a separate circuit leads to the stable(s). The pipes run parallel over the pens and through a feed-valve from each pipe these are connected to the drop pipe of each pen. As the 2 valves open simultaneously it is possible to mix the exact blend of protein, which is adjusted to the growth-phase of the pig. Next to profitability in feed-consumption you will experience a considerable reduction in phosphorus and nitrogen of the manure.


Should you wish to minimize or eliminate the remnants in the pipe, you are offered 3 alternatives with Multifeeder 5000. By "pushing" the remnants the pipe can be emptied by the new mix . Alternatively you can choose to "push" the remnants with water or by inserting a "mouse" as a partition between feed and water. These 3 systems of emptying the pipes (may be integrated with rest-tanks) offer you the possibility of distributing several blends without the problems of having remnants.

Datamix mix-tanks

The mix-tanks are equipped with a drain, which help reduce remaining quantities, as well as a cleaning door with a mounted magnet to sort out any metallic foreign bodies. For storage of remaining quantities rest tanks can be integrated with the main mixing tank. Furthermore, they will be an incorporated part of the pipe cleaning system, in which old recipes are being "pushed" out by new ones. Both the rest tanks and mix tanks are equipped with an automatic cleaning system.

Simultaneous Mixing and Feeding

Multifeeder 5000 offers possibilities for mixing and feeding up to 7 mixing systems, dry or liquid. You are offered in take from 60 raw material silos and mixing of countless recipes. Independent of each other, several mixers can feed to i.e. sow stable and finishing stable, while feed is being mixed to other stables. A basic mixer can for instance mix to several feeding tanks, meaning savings on the mix-/mill-equipment.

Network communication

The Multifeeder concept has been constructed based upon the standardised international P-net communication. For you this means easier access to other management programs as well as communication to the outside world. The hand held computer is also connected to the P-net and produced to withstand the rough environment. Apart from transmitting ad receiving data from the Multifeeder control unit, the hand held computer can also be used for direct transmission to a personal computer and to update management programs.

Easy Operation High Degree of Data-protection Super Survey

The Windows system makes it possible to tailor a system which will correspond to your specific needs.
The system works through the use of flow diagrams offering quick access to data via menu-icons or function-buttons. This offers you the possibility of operating the system manually or automatically.


Multifeeder 5000 makes it possible to run advanced feeding strategies with a traditionGraphical interface of Mutifeeder 5000al feed plan or a feed plan with up to 8 changes in recipes.

As a novelty, MULTI-RECIPE can also be used in pens of bigger stable sections, in which the recipes are changed daily according to the optimal growth conditions - everything is shown graphically on screen.

For each feed plan, the contents of the chosen feed-components are shown graphically, on plan respectively recipe-level.


A general view of the raw materials in the silos and the alarm limit is indicated on Silo control graphical interface the screen, each in their own colour. Simultaneously you can choose a picture overview of all the silos, which enables you to have a quick survey of the consumption of raw material, the stated feed value, value of dry matter, priority of emptying of the silos etc.

AlI raw material can be set up with price, stock and contents of up to 10 nutrients (optional), as well as a possibility for interval-agitation and recirculation in storage-silos. A new and user-friendly function is the automatic calculation of current average values, when refilling silos not fully emptied. Survey of Components graphical interface


As part of the Windows system, you are offered a survey of the contents of the various components in each of the chosen feed curves. This offers you a good survey how the various components change in quantity in different recipes in a finishing stable.
