Roofed feeder for sheep.

This fully galvanised roofed feeder for sheep is specially adapted to accommodate a 120 cm ø round bale. 

The feeder is filled by opening the back end and lifting in the bale. The side gates are adjustable to suit different bale sizes and to reduce the distance the animals have to reach to eat the feed. The gates are fitted with a collection trough to minimise feed waste.

The roof  height is adjustable to allow you to set the height that provides the best protection.

The base supports ensure the feeder is stable as well as being adjustable, enabling you to adjust feeding height.

The roofed feeder for sheep can be moved using the three-point linkage on a tractor with a drawbar.

Features

• 22 feed openings

• Adjustable feeding gates
• Adjustable roof height

Why use a feeder?

Putting the bale directly into the feeder is an effective way of saving time when feeding. As 120 cm diameter bales last longer, you fill the feeder less often.

When feeding roughage to sheep there is a lot of waste, and a proven method of reducing feed waste is to use a feeder.

You also improve the hygiene of the feeding site by minimising the risk of sheep consuming partly trampled feed.
