Feeders Minimize Feed Waste And Management Time
Big Wheel Feeders keep profits high by eliminating the main causes
of feed waste with practically no human intervention required.
The mixing action of the feed wheel stops pigs from sorting out
and wasting feed components they dont like. Feeder design
also limits waste by slowing or stopping the flow of feed into
the trough when pigs stop eating and start playing. Regulated
feed flow and the smooth, self-cleaning trough completely eliminate
Model RF2 4.5
Bushel/159 Liter Grower-Finisher Feeder
The perfect wean-to-finish feeder for pigs from 10 lb (4.5kg)
up to market weight. The RF2 is our most popular feeder with grower-finishers
because it can be used to feed a very broad size range. The trough
and feed wheel have been recently re-engineered to help young
pigs quickly adjust to feeding themselves - with minimal human
intervention and no waste. The RF2 is designed to feed about 60
pigs all the way to market weight, and some users have successfully
fed even more early-weaners using modern feeds, without waste
or reduction of gain. Trough diameter is 31 in. (78.7cm), height
36 in. (91.4cm).
RF1 7.5 Bushel/264 Liter Finish Feeder
The RF1 is ideal for use with larger groups and size ranges of
pigs. It has been designed to feed about 60 pigs from 50 lb (22.7kg)
to market weight. Some users find that it can readily serve even
more pigs. It works equally well in the fence line and in the
center of the pen. Trough diameter is 38 in. (96.5cm), height
40 in. (101.6cm).
RF3 15 Bushel/529 Liter 2-Day Finish Feeder
Like the RF1, the RF3 is built to feed at least 60 pigs from
50 lb (22.7kg) to market weight. It uses the same 38 in. (96.5cm)
diameter trough but has a larger hopper that can hold twice as
much feed. Height is 60 in. (152.4cm).
