"I get a kick out of working with the customer to find the best solution together. I will be in the UK in late January/early February, so be sure to contact me if you would like a visit." Robin Franken will remain your in-house contact. Please contact Robin for quotes, placing orders and for any technical questions.
The Black-V anti-spill is now also available as a 15-gram portion dispenser. Distributing concentrate in smaller portions improves feed intake and prevents pellet spillage. With its specially programmed motor, it only turns 120⁰, while the collection tray prevents excess pellet distribution. Cows are no longer rewarded for bumping the feed station or milking robot as a result.
The precise, small portions of pellet make the 15-gram version very suitable for goat milking parlours. The Black-V can also be expanded with a 28-litre concentrate container. The container is made of transparent plastic, making it easy to check the remaining supply at a glance.

Moisture and pellets. Everyone knows that moisture and pellets are a bad combination. In damp environments such as milking parlours, concentrates easily lump together, resulting in blockages in the feed dispenser. Good ventilation prevents blockages; read our extra installation tips and learn about our latest development below.
New PipeFeeder baseplate
Constant ventilation is important for the prevention of blockages, which is why the PipeFeeder's baseplate has been improved with ventilation holes. The smart positioning of the holes prevents pellets from falling through. The holes ensure that the dispensing nozzle stays dry at all times. Cows breathe warm air into the nozzle, which can condense and mix with the pellets, caking up inside the nozzle and causing blockages. With the new ventilation holes, the warm air is unable to condense and cause problems!
PipeFeeder installation tips
Correctly configure your PipeFeeder's anti-spill functionality. The PipeFeeder is a closed system; when it is properly configured, no moisture can enter the storage. If you are experiencing moisture problems, the dispensing valve may not be set to fully closed (anti-spill) in the idle position. If the dispensing valve is open, you must remove the motor and rotate the axle to line up the triangular notch in the steel with the arrow on the motor's drive shaft (this can be done with a full storage tube). Tip! Hold the front-facing camera on your smart phone under the dispensing nozzle to see if the dispensing valve is closed properly.
Install the PipeFeeder with the long edge facing the cow. If the PipeFeeder is installed the wrong way around, problems can arise from cows breathing directly into the dispensing nozzle. Always install the PipeFeeder with the long edge of the pipe facing the cow, which minimises the amount of warm breath entering the nozzle. This also allows cool air to flow behind the nozzle, which helps it dry.
Use a gasketed PVC coupling between the auger and the top of the PipeFeeder. Look at where the auger connects to the PipeFeeder. Fit a gasketed PVC coupling between the auger and the top of the PipeFeeder to prevent moisture from seeping in.
Do not install the PipeFeeder too deep in the feed trough; the bottom of the pipe should be 1 cm above the top of the trough. Installing the PipeFeeder too deep in the feed trough restricts air flow around the dispensing nozzle. This applies to milking parlours as well as feed stations or milking robots. Ensure a minimum of 26 cm between the PipeFeeder dispensing nozzle and the bottom of the feed trough. Tip! Slide a wooden plank between the side partitions in the feed station or milking parlour and lay it flat on top of the feed trough or troughs ). When you install your PipeFeeders, they will all be perfectly aligned at the correct height.
Heat stress can be a problem for (highly productive) dairy cows at temperatures higher than 23 degrees. Cows are unable to reduce their body heat, resulting in reduced feed intake, declining milk production, and reduced resistance. Supplementary feeding with liquid supplements or health additives is a good option to optimally support your dairy cows. This is especially important when the heat coincides with starting a fresh cow.
The MultiDos allows you to easily and automatically administer liquid supplements. Your cows are recognised by the feed station or milking robot and issued the exact amount they need. You can also gradually increase or decrease portions, which benefits the cow. MultiDos keeps your livestock in optimal condition.
