In the dynamic and changing world of agriculture in 2024, where efficiency and sustainability go hand in hand, choosing the perfect feed mixer / diet feeder is more than just about blending ingredients, it’s about embracing a practice designed for the efficiency gains needed in modern farming.

With a focus on tailored solutions like EM feed mixers and an eye on the future, let’s dive into how to make informed choices that propel your farm forward.

  1. Capacity and size: customising to your operations

    • Farm & herd size: Reflecting the diverse requirements of Australian farms, EM feed mixers come in a variety of volume capacities, ensuring that every farm, regardless of size, finds the perfect fit to reduce labor and increase efficiency.
    • Space and storage: Designed with the unique Australian farm layouts in mind, these mixers prioritise ease of movement and convenient storage without sacrificing capacity.
  2. Mixing uniformity: the heart of nutrition

    • Consistency for health: Uniform mixing supported by machinery with durable 15 / 20mm augers is at the core of animal health. EM mixers ensure every mix supports well-being with a centrally located auger/s to move the food towards livestock and aerate it, giving a balanced and homogeneous diet every feed.
  3. Durability and build quality: getting total machine ownership cost right

    • Rugged and ready: It’s simple: quality construction matters. EM feed mixers are crafted to last, using durable materials entirely made of S355J2+N quality steel – this is a common high strength steel used in construction – 15 mm thick (HD models – 20 mm standard) that endures the toughest conditions, a priority for Armour Group’s equipment range.
  4. Ease of use and maintenance: the essence of practicality

    • User-friendly designs: Simple operation is a hallmark of EM mixers, ensuring that day-to-day tasks are hassle-free. Maintenance is just as straightforward, with easy-access components designed for routine maintenance as required.
  5. Power requirements: efficient utilisation of resources

    • Adaptable energy solutions: Whether your operations require tractor-powered or self-propelled units, EM feed mixers are built to integrate seamlessly with your existing equipment setup. It takes around little as 2 kW and 30 minutes to prepare 2m3 of food for our Qube feeder.
  6. Cost and budget: the value of investing with best-in-class manufacturing

    • Economical and effective: With options that consider the initial investment paired with long-term operational costs and structured finance where required, EM feed mixers are positioned as a smart financial decision for any farm.

Harnessing the Power of Innovation

—it’s about embracing a practice designed for the efficiency gains needed in modern farming.

Recent studies, including research by the University of Queensland and the University of Sydney, highlight how adopting advanced feeding systems can drive significant gains in agricultural productivity and sustainability. The University of Queensland’s research on integrating advanced feed technologies into mixed farming systems demonstrates notable reductions in methane emissions and improvements in feed efficiency. Similarly, the University of Sydney has emphasised the role of innovative equipment in supporting diverse, integrated farming practices to enhance resilience and environmental benefits.

Efficient feeding equipment, such as Hustler Combi Wagons, is at the forefront of these advancements. These innovations not only enhance the availability of mixed feeds but also support sustainable farming practices, aligning with broader efforts to promote environmentally friendly agriculture.

Transformative Technologies in Agriculture

  • Embracing AI and Robotics: The widespread adoption of AI-powered automation, robotics, and advanced data analytics is crucial. EM mixers are designed to supply operational data to be a part of this technological revolution, enhancing productivity and filling labor gaps.
  • Data-Driven Decisions: Real-time analytics provide insights that can lead to more informed decisions and optimised operations.

Environmental and Economic Alignment

  • Sustainable Intensification: The right mixer supports the shift toward sustainable intensification of food and fibre production. By optimising inputs and utilising preferred, cutting-edge equipment, our customers can produce more with less, all while maintaining a commitment to environmental stewardship.

Selecting the right feed mixer / diet feeder, such as the robust EM range provided by Armour Group, is about acknowledging the multifaceted nature of agricultural advancement. if you’re considering the Rino FXX HD Feed Mixer, evaluate its capacity, durability, ease of use, and how it aligns with your farm’s size and feeding requirements. Compare it against other models like the Rino FX HD Diet Feeder to determine which best meets your specific needs, considering factors such as feed types and mixing consistency.

It’s an investment in a future where efficiency, sustainability, and innovation converge to create a more resilient, productive, and environmentally-conscious farming industry
