Why Choose An Elite Feeder?
Updated: May 10
People not familiar with feeding livestock might think that the process is simple, but in reality there are plenty of issues that can arise and different solutions for feeding livestock.
Without the assistance of mechanical feeders, bales can be placed in the paddock for the livestock to feed themselves. Round bales in this case are usually either rolled out like a thick mat or left standing. However, if livestock are given free access to hay then this can lead to a loss of feed, as they may walk and sleep on it, and spoil it in the process. This usually happens with feed in more abundant. Another issue is that the pasture beneath the hay can be damaged and this will be evident into the next season.
There are purpose-built mechanical feeders like the Elite Feeder that distribute whole bales and part-bales in an even windrow to feed on. Mechanical feeding solutions reduce feed wastage and make livestock feeding easier to manage.
Round bale feeders and feed out carts represent a beneficial step towards reducing feed losses when feeding cattle and other livestock with round bales. They are a very simple and efficient option that allows only feeding livestock to have access to the hay.
Why choose an Elite Feeder?
The Elite Feeder is a hay and silage feeder specially built for round bales and is capable of carrying up to two big round bales. It offers the perfect solution for round bale feeding, providing simple, automated feed outs. Not only does this decrease feed wastage but it also makes feeding a lot easier and less labour intensive. Farmers will know that something that makes their life easier is always a good thing.
The feeder is also proudly Australian made, meaning that it supports Australian manufacturing and business and is made to suit Australia’s unique environment.
The design is strong and robust, so that it provides a reliable feeding system for farmers. The weather in Australia is unpredictable and often harsh, so it’s important to have a feeder that can withstand the elements and provide years of reliable operation. That’s what makes them the perfect option for Australian farmers.
Maintenance for the feeder is very user friendly, making it even easier for farmers to keep their equipment in working order. Any amount of time that feeders are out of use due to maintenance can cause issues in feeding schedules.
Here’s some of the key features of the feeder:
The rippers travel over the top of the chassis to reduce component damage.
High ground clearance for ease of transport and movability.
Simple chain adjustment feature for ease of use.
Versatile loading system with collapsible forks for extra safety.
