    Animal Feed – There are major problems associated with safe

    storage and handling of animal feed, caused by use of
    inappropriate, or ill-conceived systems, or in many cases, no
    system whatsoever. This results in a physical loss and spoilage
    of expensive feed, and can even cause damage to the animals’
    health, sometimes fatally. This is a particularly important source
    of mycotoxin infection in valuable horses. In a minority of
    cases, it can cause significant problems for human health also.
    CAFRE studied this problem with a view to assessing the
    potential of SmartBunker™ to help. A study was conducted by
    “Traditionally, feed stored within storage containers is accessed via a
    lid, meaning the feed closest to the top of the container is used first.
    Feed hygiene can be compromised when new feed is added to the
    container before the entire previous batch is used, or when storage
    containers are not cleaned out before new feed is added to the
    container. The SmartBunker™ was developed to dispense feed from the
    bottom, resulting in the oldest feed being used first and any fresh feed
    added into the container being used last.”
    “Results obtained in the project indicate that feed stored in the
    SmartBunker™ is likely to maintain a high level of hygiene due to low
    levels of mould and yeast growth. Storing feed in metal bins is not
    recommended due to the likelihood of condensation development and an
    increased moisture content that can promote mould and yeast growth.
    Storing feed in feed bags with no other protection did not reduce feed
    hygiene in this study - however it is not recommended due to the
    unstable environment within the bag and the potential for vermin to
    contaminate feed with faeces and urine.” AND
    “the risk of feed-induced health problems was lowest from the feed
    stored within the SmartBunker™.”
