Frequently Asked Questions
About iFEED Automatic Feeders
How does the iFEED system save me time and money?
By using the iFEED system, you will not only be able to control the portion sizes your horses consume in each feeding, but also the duration and frequency the horse feeds throughout the day. Smaller portions and a lower consumption rate will allow the intake of feed to be more efficient while less feed is needed for the horse. Vitamins and minerals in the feed are now absorbed better by the horse and digested properly. You can now focus on your other important horse caretaking priorities with the confidence that the iFEED system will handle horse feeding in a much more controlled, regulated, and healthy manner.
How long has iFEED been in business?
iFEED was developed in Denmark and has been in business since 1995.
Where are the iFEED systems being used?
From private individuals to large riding centers, the feeder is used by horse lovers who want to ensure their horses are fed in the best possible manner. In the large facilities, the success of the iFEED system is due to the flexibility that allows owner or barn manager to design a feeding schedule that is best for that individual horse. The feed and supplements can be added to the hopper at the most convenient time for horse and staff, knowing there will be no food spilled and wasted or important supplements missed. Riding centers across Europe have reported savings in time and feed that returned their investment made within the first year of operations.
