Different Kinds of FeedersMost ranchers and farmers have two or more kinds of feeders on their property. They serve different purposes and offer several advantages. Here's a look at some of the options available:
- Bale Feeders – The price of hay has shot up in recent years, which means farmers are always on a lookout for equipment that will help them reduce waste. Bale feeders are an excellent solution to this problem. They are available in two varieties-round feeders and feeder panels. These installations have hay savers and stop animals from getting inside, which can help reduce food wastage.
- Creep Feeder – Creep feeders are for ranchers who want to supplement lamb and calf feed. If a cow or ewe is unable to provide enough milk to her offspring, farmers must supplement with a special creep feed to ensure they get enough nutrients. A creep feeder ensures animals can consume this food easily.
- Easy Feeder – Easy feeders are portable and transportable feeding tools. They have a compact tank, a funnel, and a pipe for transporting food to the animals. You can attach this feeder to your truck before transporting it to any corner of a farm. Ranchers can also use an easy feeder at trade shows, expos, etc.
- Self-Feeders – Self-feeders are very popular in the beef industry because it is fully automatic. They don't require as much time or labor and ensure every animal is well-fed.
