- 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."

The largest feed opening available. 16" (40.6 cm) of internal width and 17" (43.2 cm) of vertical height -- plenty of space to allow sow to comfortable eat and swallow with her mouth in the feeder. No twisting, turning nor tossing of feed. Our Pride famous cast iron frame is rugged but with a smooth, no snag finish. Sows can rub through stainless steel edges causing abrasions and cuts. Your animals cannot cut themselves on cast iron. Tapered lip assures complete drainage after cleaning with high-pressure washer.
Pride-Tuff high molecular, high density, polyethylene body. 12 gauge stainless attachment plates permit feeder to tip out for easy cleaning. Feed is easily accessible to the sow; no accumulation and no spoilage.No sharp edges. No protruding nuts and bolts.
Sow Friendly Feed Dispenser. Sow pushes on dispenser rings with her nose dropping one or two cups of feed into the trough. When sow is not pushing on the rings, the hopper is sealed. Dispenser slows down impatient sows. Feeder can be ordered without the dispenser (Model F1ELDA). Our Push Button Valve Model SN1530, can be mounted inside the feeder. It is mounted on either the right or left side, secured by two modified attachment plates. Order F1EW and SN1530.
