First ever Triotrac retires after 9,5 years and 21,000 working hours
The Niederseidewitz Agricultural Cooperative in Bahretal (Germany) has been using a Triotrac self-propelled mixer feeder for their feeding for nearly ten years now. Niederseidewitz’s first self-propelled Triotrac was recently retired after 9.5 years of faithful service, having clocked 20,797 working hours!
Niederseidewitz was the very first customer for the first generation Triotrac. On 14 February 2008, the 20 cubic metre self-propelled machine was put into service at this dairy farm consisting of 1080 milking cows and another 900 young stock and has performed perfectly ever since. Twelve loads are made each day, processing an impressive 50 tonnes of feed per day (18,250 tonnes annually). After 9.5 years, the time has come to replace the self-propelled mixer feeder…

TFM Tracker™ (Trioliet Feed Management) is a feed management system designed as a comprehensive solution for dairy farmers to manage the feeding process, boost efficiency and improve milk production. Trioliet now presents TFM Tracker™ Basic, the new entry level version of TFM Tracker™ Dairy.
Insight into Dry Matter Uptake and Loading Accuracy
TFM Tracker™ Basic is ideal for dairy farmers taking their first steps into feed management. It’s a simple and clear system which allows you to enter feed components, rations and animal groups into the computer and subsequently use a USB stick to transfer the data to the mixer feeder wagon’s weighing computer. Two reports show at a glance the actual amount of feed loaded and fed compared to the planned rations and the dry matter uptake per cow. This will allow you to adjust when necessary, without requiring a lot of computer knowhow.
A Step Further
If you wish to obtain more functionalities in future, you can easily upgrade the TFM Tracker™ Basic to Lite, Pro or Pro+. Choose the package you need to meet the requirements of your business. Of course, the more extensive the package, the more possibilities it offers. For example, Lite and more comprehensive upgrades also provide insight into the exact feed costs. Pro+ goes another step further and can, for example, be linked with farm management programmes (such as DeLaval, Lely, DMS, Uniform Agri, Lemmer-Fullwood, GEA, etc.), so changes in cow groups need only be entered once and milk production is directly linked to the feed intake, making feed efficiency easy to discern.
For Dairy Farmers, Beef Farmers and Feed Contractors
In addition to feed management systems for dairy farmers, Trioliet also provides feed management systems with additional functionalities focusing on beef farmers (TFM Beef Tracker™) and feed contractors (TFM Tracker™ Contractor).
Gain a better control of feed costs, reduce leftover feed and improve production with the Trioliet management tool: TFM Tracker™. After all: to measure is to know!
