A consistent, quality mix everyday with PACE feeding controls
The entire process, including loading sequence, quantities and mixing times, is controlled by PACE. This guarantees the production of a quality mix regardless of who is operating the machine. PACE feeding controls o account for variation in types, dry matter and quality of forage. Feed efficiency is thereby greatly improved.
Proven results and with increased levels of Feed Conversion Efficiency
One year results on 1,086 farms using the Keenan Mech-fiber® System has shown a consistent 10% improvement in Feed Conversion Efficiency – with increased daily yields of 1.84 litres of Energy Corrected Milk from 0.74 kilos less feed.
The Keenan mixer wagon is truly versatile. With the new Keenan bale handler it’s possible to incorporate whole bales and has the ability to chop root crops such as beet and potatoes with ease. Water and molasses can be built-into the ration with ease.
Unique mixing action
Deep body mixing chamber with angled paddles, controlled rotation and separate discharge chamber ensures the ration is perfectly mixed. All of the feed is mixed all of the time with no dead spots.
“The Keenan mixer wagons delivered the most homogeneous mix to the trough out of 28 different mixer wagons trialed.” Praktijkcentrum Rundvee (Practical Centre for Cows) and the Landbouwcentrum voor Voedergewassen (Agricultural Centre for Feed Crops, LCV) in the Netherlands.
The Keenan mixer wagon makes it possible to prepare homogeneous rations with high fibre content for the dry cows or for small specific mixes for calves.
Quality nutrition team and proven feeding program
Keenan can provide you with a team of specialised nutritionists with the main objective to improve your Feed Conversion Efficiency and profitability. Keenan have proven results from over 1 million cows, on 10,000 farms in 25 different countries.
Machine Strength and Reliability
All Keenan mixer wagons have an unrivalled reputation for strength, durability and longevity. The new range have larger capacity, can feed out from both sides and are easier to drive.
Service Backup 24-7
Keenan provides a world class 24/7 customer service and parts offering. With a network of highly qualified service engineers in every market Keenan ensure you get maximum performance from your mixer wagon.
A power saving
From a recent trial using the same feeds a vertical mixer required 28% more power compared to the Keenan. The Keenan mixer wagon paddles rotate 6-8 times per minute which preserves the structure of forages. Round bales are introduced gradually and without effort, as evidenced by the torque of the mixing Keenan (less than 400 Nm.)
Due to the simple gearing system in the Keenan mixer range there are substantial fuel savings to be made. According to Alex Robertson, Farm Manager at Coopon Carse in Scotland, “The twin auger vertical mixer wagon needed to be driven at full PTO speed and just seemed to soak up the power. We were using 37 litres per day which works out at £6,000 on fuel each year. When the Keenan was installed, the reduction in fuel use was noticeable. At our last calculation the tractor on the mixer was using about 17 litres/day – a saving of 20 litres/day which is worth over £3000 per year.”
