Sensaphone 1800

Sensaphone 1800 system livestock facility monitor

The Sensaphone 1800 system remotely monitors conditions like temperature, humidity, ventilation, carbon dioxide and power failure at livestock pens, barns and storage facilities to protect valuable animals and equipment from damage.

When the system detects that a sensor reading has moved out of the preset range, it immediately alerts up to eight people with custom phone calls, allowing personnel to quickly address the situation.

One Sensaphone 1800 unit monitors status conditions 24/7 for up to eight locations. The internal rechargeable battery backup provides 24 hours of continuous monitoring and alerts in the event of a power outage. Each monitoring unit is sealed in an enclosure to protect it from moisture, dirt and chemicals. Operators can obtain the status of each monitored condition at the installation site or via telephone.

Sterling Systems & Controls Inc. is releasing a line of bulk bag unloading systems. These unloading systems are custom-engineered and manufactured.

They can include many special features, including material weighing and batch dispensing, system controls required for automatic operation, bag hoist, bag massagers, a variety of valve types, dust containment, magnet for tramp metal removal, mechanical or pneumatic conveying, gain-in-weight or loss-in-weight solutions, a bag dump station, lump breakers, and the options of a floor mount or through-floor mount.

BeefCake Cotton Edition

BeefCake feeder

DewEze introduced a new model of BeefCake feeder designed to work with whole cotton seed (WCS). The BeefCake Cotton Edition has a quick-engaging agitator plus the twin auger system to keep WCS flowing to the chute. The agitator arms rotate at a slower RPM than the augers, preventing damage to the feed as it moves through the bin. The removable pin disengages the agitator, offering flexibility to dispense other feeds, if desired.

The BeefCake Cotton Edition is available in a 2,000-pound (about 900 pounds of cottonseed) unit and features an electric or hydraulic model.

Deracin from Pharmgate Animal Health

Pharmgate Animal Health introduces Deracin (chlortetracycline), a generic (ANADA) alternative to Aureomycin for effective and economical control of shipping fever and anaplasmosis, two of the mostly costly and challenging diseases in the cattle industry.

Deracin is broad spectrum and effective against both gram-positive and gram-negative organisms. It is readily absorbed, so it quickly reaches effective blood and lung concentrations. It can be top-dressed in cattle feeds or fed to cattle on pasture with free-choice mineral formulas.

Deracin is a veterinary feed directive drug to be used by or on the order of a licensed veterinarian.  end mark
