Farmex supplies the 12vDC linear actuator range manufactured by LINAK in Denmark. These actuators are used in automatically controlled natural ventilation (ACNV) systems and now in controlled inlet fan ventilation systems as well.
The necessary mounting and flap connection brackets are also supplied by Farmex together with 35 years of experience in designing and supplying ventilation system for livestock production.
An exciting development that came out of a recent collaborative R&D project is the voluntary access in-pen weigh-scale for growing pigs. More simply called GrowthSensor two sizes of scale for weaner / growers (9-40 kg) and finishers (50-120 kg) are wirelessly connected to the data capture network on farm and collect weight data in the group continuously.
To date dicam monitoring systems have collected information on production inputs such as feed, water, energy and the housed environment; now the crucial measure of output is available growth.
