SawTooth: Automation Solutions purpose-built for dairies

Off-the-shelf Products

SawTooth products include controllers, interfaces, and mechanical systems that separately and/or together accomplish fast, precise, lowwaste feeding:

  • SawTooth UDC controller • for dairy
  • SmartWeigh forages and • concentrates machine
  • SawTooth industrially-• hardened User Interface

SawTooth systems integrate with your current investment in feed software and mechanical systems.

Our Approach

Our approach is based on listening: what does your dairy need, what are your goals, what are your constraints? Your needs and goals determine the solution. If you simply need to automate liquid or mineral feeds, to integrate systems with feed software, to ensure accuracy for forages and concentrates… or want to build a full TMR, we will work on scope and plan together and then succeed together.

Key Sawtooth Benefits

SawTooth Systems – whether limited in scope or whether a Total Mix Ration facility – result in several important benefits:

  • Faster Feed Times•
  • Lower Feed Costs•
  • Précise Rations•
  • Fewer Unrecoverable Errors•
  • Higher Milk Yields• Healthier Cows•
  • Accurate information for • dairymen and nutritionists

Case Study Example

SawTooth systems at a progressive Idaho dairy have resulted in:

  • Less than one year payback•
  • 25 cents/cow per day savings•
  • 2 hrs/day feed time savings•
  • Elimination of deviations•

And now all feeders are accurate, eliminating variance that comes from different feeders fulfilling rations.

The risk of “off” batches and uncertainty around feeding is removed.

What Dairies say about sawtooth Feed solutions

After eliminating an hour of feed time per day and 500 pounds each of whey and molasses losses, we decided to deploy SmartWeigh for concentrates and forages in our feed center. SawTooth solutions integrated seamlessly with EZFeed and immediately made a far bigger positive impact on our feeding and herd than we expected.

Harold and Jerry have always been wonderful to work with. They bring a new facet to the dairy industry with their expertise in other industries that we in the dairy industry don't get a chance to see, We look forward to doing more business in the future with them as they have stood by our side in projects from start to finish - very professional company.

Dean Swager, Swager Farms

SawTooth engineers take a pragmatic approach which I like. They recommended a phased approach where each phase provides the cash flow required to build our full TMR. The feed time savings allows for two people to focus on other priorities.
