Zeddy 1250: Precision Animal Feeder

Zeddy 1250 ensures optimal nutrition for livestock with precise, controlled feeding, suitable for a range of farm animals.


The Evolution of Livestock Feeding

The Zeddy 1250 is not merely a feeder; it is a comprehensive animal feeding solution. Designed with precision and care for livestock, this state-of-the-art feeder is engineered to change the way farmers approach animal nutrition. It provides a standalone, towable unit capable of housing 1.25 cubic meters of dry feed, delivering tailored nutrition to a herd of up to 200 animals including cows, calves, deer, and goats. By recognizing individual animals through RFID ear tags, it administers precise feed portions, ensuring each animal receives its specific dietary requirements without the common waste associated with traditional feeding methods​.

Its smart technology allows for real-time adjustments and monitoring of feed consumption, enabling farmers to optimize growth rates and health while minimizing feed costs. Instant alerts keep you informed of any anomalies, thereby offering a proactive approach to herd management​​.

The Zeddy 1250’s sophisticated system ensures that farmers can control and monitor feed parameters from anywhere, directly on their smartphones or computers.

This level of control helps maintain consistent feed quality and quantity, guaranteeing that animals start their lives with the best nutrition possible, reducing the incidence of illness, and fostering a uniformly healthy stock​​.
