Automation fills the void of staffing shortages, delivers labor savings and increases output
Despite the size of the operation, efficiency, productivity and profitability are hot topics amongst all feed manufacturers. However, the success of the operation hinges on its ability to accurately and cost-effectively deliver the product. At the end of the bagging line, the manual palletizing of bagged feed poses challenges to mills of all sizes. As it becomes more difficult to find employees to staff this labor-intensive and often low-paying position, smaller mills are finding themselves more susceptible to staffing shortages, worker’s compensation claims and impeded output.
