Feed Bin Inventory System
Precise Feed Management Made Simple, Economical
CHORE-TIME® Feed Inventory System provides an economical means for managing and monitoring feed stored in feed bins (silos) on the farm.
Producers can easily:
- Check feed bin weights by using a read-out screen.
- Get precise weights to aid in better managing feed inventories and help prevent costly out-of-feed events.
Designed to work as a stand-alone system, the CHORE-TIME feed inventory system also can be connected with the popular CHORE-TIME C-CENTRAL™ software to provide remote location and multiple house monitoring.
