InTouch is a live review and support service with skilled nutritionists using innovative technology to ensure your animals get exactly what they need, consistently, every day.
• Consistency In Both Feeding & Mixing
MechFiber was discovered in 2008 by a KEENAN team led by world renowned rumen scientist, Professor David Beever. It is a ration which has specific physical and conventional (chemical) properties, presenting an open balanced mix to the rumen improving rumen mixing, rumination and the conversion of feed into milk or meat.
Based on the legendary machine reliability and back-up service, KEENAN mixer wagons, together with InTouch technology are designed to deliver the optimal mix consistently every time!
FIND OUT WHICH ONE IS
Acidosis was a big issue among my cows, after 3 months using the KEENAN system, my herd health has really much improved, as well as the milk yield which was not a priority target.
Graham Williams, Gwent
“I don’t know how I would survive without either the feeder or InTouch now. The InTouch nutritionist provides me with regular advice and I can easily adjust my feeding to suit grass supply and the cow’s requirements. I don’t need a calculator to do this as the information is already on my InTouch Controller when I get there in the morning. It’s all done for me.”
LJ Ryan, Tipperary
“I felt that KEENAN was a good recognised brand and the best feeder to mix. People told me it would add to my workload, but I felt it as lessened once I got myself into a feeding routine. The KEENAN is easy to manoeuvre, very compact, and a very sturdy machine.”
Tim McSweeney, Cork
“The cost savings and improvements in having the correct rations are crucial. Currently we have five rations programmed into the system, and as animal numbers change it’s simple to alter these, as the InTouch Controller automatically updates and changes the ration.”
Matthew Shaw, Carlisle, Cumbria
“I’ve seen significant improvements in the health of my cows due to the use of the new KEENAN MechFiber mixing system. It’s hard to quantify this on paper but, holding afterbirth problems that I had are now gone. Because my cows are eating a reliable and consistent mix they are healthier, more content and performing better.”
John Bennett, Kilkenny
“Achieving a 75% first service to conception left me amazed to be honest; I’d have laughed at anybody who told me it would improve so much, but I’ve seen it happen here.”
Brian Rohan, Laois
“For me, InTouch Controller is superb, the InTouch support is great. I can base my simple buffer diet of silage, concentrate and straw on the weather and grass availability.”
Sean Hayes, Tipperary
“Milk has gone up around 1 litre, butterfat improved and there is definitely less stomach upsets. Diet feeding makes cows last longer and we enjoy seeing healthy cows milking well.”
James & Andrew Adair, Antrim
“The InTouch support is great. I just call up if I need any changes done or the internet is down and they are more than willing to help. I suppose the best thing about it is, given that I feed everything through the wagon, they are looking after all the animals for me. This and the consistency of the mix is number 1”
Alex Steen, Tyrone
