The all new Osborne SaFIRE™ (Small Animal Feed Intake Recording Equipment) Feeder is a true ad-libitum feeder that automates the measurement of a small animal’s individual daily feed intake. SaFIRE utilizes the same technology as the FIRE® (Feed Intake Recording Equipment) System that has been the gold standard in pig performance testing for decades.
Using RFID (radio frequency identification) technology, animals are identified at the SaFIRE Station, allowing the system to assign all measurements to records. A sensitive load cell continually weighs the trough and feed, allowing FIRE to record the time and duration of each unique visit, along with the weight of feed consumed. The integrated animal scale monitors individual body weights for monitoring small animal growth.
The information automatically collected by SaFIRE is transferred in real-time to a personal computer into the WinFIRE RT™ software application to generate reports and study.
