Bunkbot Demonstration

October 20, 2021

Lot feeders can now see the BunkBot at work in a commercial setting with Mort & Co’s Pinegrove Feedlot near Millmerran, Queensland, set to host on-site demonstrations of the technology.

An integrated system developed by automation and robotics solution company Manabotix, BunkBot is an autonomous robot that manoeuvres a Bunk Scanner around a feedlot, providing feed remaining estimates that have been proven to be more accurate and precise than humans.

Pinegrove Feedlot adopted the BunkBot robot into their routine bunk calling operations after seeing multiple benefits to their business during an on-site trial. Through a demonstration site funded by MLA, Pinegrove will now host other Australian lot feeders to demonstrate first-hand the opportunities this technology presents to the industry.

Automation and robotics solution company Manabotix successfully developed the automated feed bunk scanner which has proven to be more precise and accurate than human callers.
