The FeedCast System

Little Bird's patent pending low power, wireless feed inventory control system has been designed to measure feed levels in livestock feed bins in a unique, non intrusive way. FeedCast provides integrators, feed mills, and growers very accurate feed inventory quantities and actionable metrics to more efficiently allocate resources in the feed supply-chain. Customers have used our technology to successfully eliminate feed outs, reduce over deliveries, and preemptively solve any scheduling conflicts. See how it works here.


Easy Install

The sensing technology behind the FeedCast system makes the installation process simple (average 20 minutes per bin). No alteration to the bins, no need for power outlets, electricians, or heavy machinery to move the bin for install.

Accessible Data

With access to the cloud and our web portal/email reports/texts, the FeedCast data is accessible virtually anywhere. Our API enables you to pull the data from the cloud directly into your systems.

No Outlet. No Problem.

Our FeedCast system is self-powered. Li-Ion batteries and a solar panel make our systems self-sufficient. Thanks to its low power consumption, the system will run reliably, even when light conditions are less than ideal.

Analytic Tools

A set of analytic tools are available to take complete advantage of the newly gathered data. Compare feed rates between houses, minimize left over feed at the end of a flock, and eliminate feed outs by scheduling deliveries based on projected empty bin dates.


The FeedCast system is capable of covering all farm sizes using a local, low-power, wireless technology. Then, a single farm cellular gateway will upload all the locally collected information to the cloud via the cellular network.


With Little Bird's FeedCast system you can:

  • Eliminate feed outs—Knowing how much feed is left allows better/prioritized delivery.
  • Get up-to-date inventory control—Know and confirm how much feed is delivered.
  • Monitor growth performance—Real-time feed conversion information can help you determine how your livestock is progressing.
  • Predict consumption—Our feed inventory system can help you minimize feed pick up at the end of the growth cycle.


See your livestock’s progress graphically.

  • See feed rates and overall progress.
  • Discover potential issues with your feeding system (e.g. clogged auger, unopened bin) before they affect your livestock growth.
  • Plan future deliveries to minimize truck dispatch.


Accessing your FeedCast information is easy. Use your favorite smart device to access your own dedicated web portal. The web portal shows you the latest readings, current performance, and can help you visualize the data more easily. Additionally, you can have:

  • Text messages sent directly to your cell phone for latest readings and alerts.
  • Email reports automatically generated with the latest information and sent to you at any time during the day.
  • An API to help you integrate and automate internal processes in your company using the latest feed information.
