  • Box Stall Drinker

    Heated Box Stall Water For corner installations in box stalls.

  • Mineral Feeder

    Your time is too valuable to spend it- "messin' with a mineral feeder"
    You've experienced it all - rotating feeders that don't quite rotate, welded legs that come unwelded, rubber flaps that disintegrate with little use, frozen bearings and feeders frozen in the ground. Our Brower - tuff mineral feeder is easily moved from pasture to pasture. Our mineral feeder is easily used by animals, protects feed & mineral and protects your time. Most any animal is attracted to this feeder and readily learns to use it. No training is necessary.
    NO EXPOSED SHEET METAL, STEEL LATTICEWORK OR STRAPS FOR YOUR ANIMALS TO GET CAUGHT ON. Solid bottom. Cheap imitations leave an exposed cavity (and leave a hole in your pocketbook).
    Molding process engineered to permit extra material to flow into center post for extra strength. Post has a 6 inch (15.2 cm) diameter base and is further supported by three partitions. Four notched flanges for easy anchoring.
    Heavy-duty 41 inch (104.1 cm) diameter flap protected by rubber disk. Before you purchase any other feeder, ask experienced users how well competitors' flaps hold up compared with Brower's flaps.
    Link pin allows flap to ride up when lifted by animal; this permits "give" and extends life of flap and feeder.
    High density polyethylene. Hindered amine light stabilizer, the most effective ultraviolet inhibitor.
    Holds three 50 lb. (22.7 kg) salt or mineral blocks. Can accommodate larger blocks up to 12 inches (30.5 cm) square. Also holds 200 lbs. (90.0 kg) of loose supplement level-full.

    WHY YOU WANT TO PURCHASE OUR MINERAL FEEDER AND NOT PURCHASE ANY MINERAL FEEDER ON A PEDESTAL OR OTHERWISE ELEVATED.
    1. Cows eating with their heads in the downward "natural grazing position" produced 17% more saliva than those eating from an elevated surface. Additional salivation had a direct positive influence on the efficiency of rumen function. Overall digestion was significantly enhanced.
    -From a Study by: McFarlane, I.S. 1972. Bovine behavior patterns. Livestock Breeder Journal. December, 15 (no. 12): 6.
    2. Milking cows were observed for the occurrence of feed-tossing behavior. About 10% of the cows engaged in this excessive sorting and throwing of feed. As a result of feed tossing over their backs and along their sides, feed wastage for these cows ranged up to 10 percent. When given the choice of eating from an elevated (28 cm - 11 inches) bunk versus one at ground level, the cows chose the lower level and feed tossing was not observed. The authors of this study concluded that feed sorting and throwing is an engineering problem. The solution is designing equipment which permits cattle to feed "in the natural, head-down, grazing-like position."

85 Gallon Field DrinkerDURAPRIDE FIELD DRINKER

Precise medicating. We're better at the details.
Sure, you can buy plastic tanks that hold water from several sources. Pride of the Farm gives you built-in easy-anchor notched flanges, more capacity (find another 85 gallon drinker), the boldest gallon markers and a handy fill line in the trough. If you talk to other manufacturers, ask them if their fill markers include the water in the trough and if so, at what depth. We give you precise medicating. Take a look at our other details. . .
-8 inch (20.3 cm) ID threaded cap; 1.25 inch (3.18 cm) ID port with pop-out plug.
-All Poly construction. High density polyethylene. Hindered amine light stabilizer, the most effective ultraviolet inhibitor. No rust, no corrosion. Takes more kicking abuse than any pigskin.
-Two drink openings are each 15 inches (38.1 cm) high, 13.3 inches (33.8 cm) wide and 8 inches (20.3 cm) deep.
-304 stainless steel bite guards.
-Incremental 10 gallon markers and top marker showing all 85 gallons. Water level easy to read through translucent tank.
-One 2 inch (5.1 cm) drain in each drink opening. Rounded corners. Complete cleanout and drainage port allows sturdy fill valve installation. Optional Model 150PP valve. Add your own plumbing as specified on instruction sheet. No need to drill a hole in your tank. Four notched flanges for easy anchoring. To anchor, use our optional USA Choice Stakes. Four 14 inch x .5 inch (36 cm x 1.3 cm) cuts. Order Model PS1. For permanent installations, order optional Model 383344 stainless steel anchor package: four anchor bolts, four plates, four flat washers, four nuts (all stainless steel). Use a 250 watt cast aluminum de-icer in the trough or equivalent. Use a thermostatically controlled heater designed for use with polyethylene in the tank. Electrical supply card threads through port. Either option will work for you. The trough option, will do a better job with minimal drinking activity (less than say 7 head). Select the option that results in the easiest, most secure hookup for your particular operation. Warning: All electrically heated waterers must be installed by a qualified electrician and must be properly grounded. Failure to follow these and other procedures could result in electrocution of human beings and animals. Read and follow instructions.
