When individual farrowing, our Farrow Feeders allow for precise feeding (up to 15Kg of food) maintaining all the benefits of our long troughs by providing longer term feed protection to allow the animal to return to the feeder as many times as she needs without food being lost to the birds.
These troughs can be free standing or alternatively can be attached to a tank if required (see our Farrow Feeder Combination). They are also able, with the aid of the rear chute, to be used successfully with mechanical feed wagons. As a percentage of feed saved the farrow feeders have proved extremely successful.
As you can see the single farrow feeder comes mounted on a chequer plate base which is 0.9m x 0.9m. There is also the option of a rain guard (pictures available soon) and/or with the option of a rear plastic chute.
Feeders have a feed indicator so stockmen know how much feed to give specific animals and ground anchors are available as optional extras to suit site conditions to prevent feeder movement.
