Automatic Horse Feeding
Your Innovative Feeding Solution
Promoted (Source: Nordic AutoFeed)
The conventional methods of feeding horses are both labour- and time-intensive and can impact their health and well-being.
The horse’s digestive system was designed to receive frequent small meals and as such, large meals fed less often can lead to health problems such as colic, ulcers, and laminitis. Prolonged periods of time between feedings can also give rise to undesired behavioural habits such as cribbing, biting, weaving, pacing, and food aggression.
As any horse owner knows, feeding hay is often a messy and time-consuming task. Reliable stable help can be costly and difficult to find. In addition, handling hay on a regular basis can cause respiratory problems in humans, including allergies, exacerbation of asthma, and long-term lung damage from exposure to irritants.
Fortunately, the Nordic AutoFeed can address these concerns and provide a more optimal feeding solution.
The Nordic AutoFeed is the industry’s first automated and weight-based feeding solution. Built to require a hay refill every one to three days, the AutoFeed can eliminate waste and reduce feeding workload by 80 percent. With continuous, scheduled feeds, the AutoFeed provides horses with consistent nutritional support in a daily feeding schedule which can be customized for individual horses, allowing for modifications based on their exercise routine, age, and dietary requirements.
How It Works
The Nordic AutoFeed utilizes weight-based technology to provide small rations up to 12 times a day. The feeding schedule is customizable by choosing start and end times, number of feeds, and pounds per day for each horse.
The feed door automatically opens at each feed interval. Once the horse consumes the designated amount, the door closes until the next feed time. Different bar setups can be used to encourage or slow down feeding.
The Nordic AutoFeed is an innovative approach to slow-feeding horses that mimics natural grazing habits, promoting a healthy digestive system and overall good health and well-being. For caretakers, it can provide health benefits while reducing the workload and expense associated with feeding.
