Lately the concepts of Precision Farming, Agriculture 4.0 and traceability are more and more frequent. Having a system to know your forage quality is crucial. Concepts such as Food safety, animal health, traceability, environmental impact and Optimized Feeding are a must in order to gain higher animal yield and be more efficient. We are showing you now more about Orkel Precision and what is it all about.
Orkel Precision is a complete system for collecting, analysing and utilizing information about the forage and the baling operations. An integrated NIR-sensor in the Orkel Dens-X Compactor collects relevant information about your forage, such as Dry Matter %, starch, crude protein, ADF, NDF, etc. In addition to forage quality, other relevant information such as bale weight, nutritional and energy values can also be stored. All this data is registered and stored in the Orkel Cloud and can be accessed via only your smartphone.
How are you going to be able to recall that data?
Through our MyOrkel and BaleID apps, you are able to quickly retrieve an analysis of stored data collected during the baling process. This allows you to be updated about your compactor operational status anytime anywhere (MyOrkel) or to scan any bale with an Orkel BaleID™ tag on it (BaleID App).
MyOrkel App and MyOrkel Pro
Information is key and many times we underestimate its power. With Orkel Precision you will have access structured and pre analysed raw data, being able to monitor it and get statistics out of it.
The MyOrkel App gives you a quick overview of your compactor(s) from anywhere on earth, check current status and answer questions about current or latest production (bales/h, production trend, etc). compactor settings while baling (number of film layers, etc). You can even see the compactor's location in a map on the app while the compactor is in operation.
With the MyOrkel Pro you will get access to a more advanced interface. It will allow you to check your compactor more into the detail. Information such as Oil temperature, chamber pressure, chamber open or not and so on will be available. A remote Support will also be faster and more efficient.
An RFID sticker is automatically applied to the bale during wrapping by a BaleID™ Tagger. This patent pending solution lets you trace and retrieve information about the specific bale using a regular smartphone with the app installed. Easy, quick and complete information at your fingertips. Information such as the compactor settings while baling (number of film layers, etc.), baling location and current weather conditions are all stored. The RFID Sticker is safe in the bale, below two layers of film, and the information is always clean and visible on your smartphone. It is a clever solution, as far as you do not have to print a huge tag to display all that information and do not risk to get it erased over time.
Your bale is now tagged and you have full control of bale weight, forage quality and baling location. If you wish, you can print an overview on paper or share it via social media! By scanning the bale with your smartphone, you may access all bale specifications and use this information for optimal feeding. As for example avoiding underfeeding and adding supplements and concentrates just if and when needed .
Orkel Precision, it is all about advantages!
- Efficient operations
Know your compactor = Bale Better, bale Faster
By knowing your compactor, you can enhance your efficiency and reach better performance. The Orkel Precision System, through the MyOrkel App, enables you to monitor your compactor and inform you about relevant information about the compactor operation, current or historical status and location. You will know how well you are doing and have a better overview and control of the process. Enhanced efficiency and control.
- Precision Farming
Know your forage = Feed optimally and gain animal yield
The farmer is capable to feed his animals in the most optimal way, being able to be more efficient in processes, to add just the needed concentrate, save resources and assure the expected profit.
- Adding value to your Forage
You know the content of the bale, you know what you can expect from it. It is not just about a bale, but THE bale. Knowing the DM, energy and nutricional relevant information, in addition to the weight, is a key factor to best performance. You can only control what you know. And by knowing the content and having control over it, you can add value to it.
- Traceability of the bale
And let’s also mention the traceability as an added value as well.
In order to enhance quality, knowing the origin of a product and processes it went through is key. The BaleID identification number can also be read and entered manually on phone or pc. The Orkel BaleID™ tag can be even interpreted as a quality certificate/stamp.
- Customer Value
At Orkel we want to be sure our customers are able to compete and survive the competitive market and over perform. We want you to be ahead, providing innovative profitable solutions, developing profitable customers.
- Environmental friendly
By actually knowing what is inside the bale you have a huge benefit. You avoid losses and work effectively. No waste of resources and better management. You are able to make more with less! Orkel Precision is also environmental friendly.
