Finishing Feeders

Finishing 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 don’t 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 spoilage.

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).

Model 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).

Model 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).
