Bin Scales

Feed constitutes 65% of live production cost

Improving feed management is critical to reducing costs in poultry production. Bin scales are an important tool for optimizing this process. In fact, they are the only sensor accurate enough to determine the feed consumption of an individual bird, not just the entire flock. With this accurate data, you can make informed decisions about your flock management, reduce waste and avoid overfeeding, resulting in significant cost savings.


The Intelia Feed Bin Scale product line includes several options, to make the system as simple as a standalone feed bin scale and as extensive as a true feed management system. When connected to Compass Farm Data Management Software, they allow you to take control of your feed, wherever you are.
