Mixer Feeders

Mixer Feeders are generally used to efficiently weigh, mix and distribute feed. They are sometimes called ‘diet feeders’ as distribution of food can be easily limited with a mixer feeder.

There are three types of mixer feeders, including paddle, horizontal auger and vertical auger.

Bale Unrollers, Cutters and Shredders

Bale unrollers, cutters and shredders take the hassle out of feeding silage to livestock.

Using bale shredders, cutters and unrollers make distributing feed faster and easier and results in a more efficient process. These pieces of machinery shred and unroll bales – making them easier for livestock to consume. There is less waste as older, more coarse feed is less likely to be ignored.

Silo Unloading Equipment

These pieces of machinery improve the efficiency and safety of unloading silos.

There are a range of different types of silos that storage silage and grain, such as tower silos, monolithic silos, bunker silos and bag silos, as well as much more.

Receiving Hoppers, Blowers and Elevators

Receiving hoppers, grain blowers and grain elevators are all components of a pneumatic grain conveyor.

These components increase efficiency rates, hygiene levels and reduce the risk of losing material – providing economic benefits.

Used Animal Feeders

Milk Processing Equipment
