How are people finding these? Looking at them as an option to feed dairy heifers on straw and corn as opposed to out of a bag. Is it realistically accurate to “set” it to 3kg/head/day? Thanks
 
Are you just using cracked corn ?
We use these feeders for out wintered calves , tried blends in them but you have to have them opened up to much to get it to flow if you where wanting them down to 3kg.
Cake you will get down to 3kg but find in damp weather they can clog up when there are shut down .
There designed for grain really so if your corn is just cracked I would think it will run well enough that you could shut them down to 3kg or less .

Would be nuts only, realistically possible to restrict them to 3kg/each then you think? Would negate the need for feed space as well as making it less of a job filling a hopper with the loadall bucket whilst also having the benefit of little and often feed as oppose to once a day

There's an 1800 here would probably be for sale, only used a couple of years as an ad lib lamb creep but still got all the bits. Transport from Scotland might kill it though and my boss is away for a fortnight for the sake of agreeing a price.

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.
