Galvanized Steel Rotary Hog Feeder
Our capacity outdoor hog feeders have a unique design in use since 1985. This design really does minimize feed waste. Animals turn a multi-spoke wheel in the bottom of the round feed trough. A feed sweep, located inside the bottom of the hopper and attached to the feed wheel, sweeps feed past the cone and out of the hopper. Bump bars, located inside the hopper, agitate the feed to keep it moving. Feed falls through the center hole into the trough, where the feed wheel dispenses it to the hogs. Feed stops flowing when hogs stop moving the feed wheel, thus reducing waste.
Note that there are no doors which can be a maintenance item. Water from rain or snow will NOT wick up into the feed hopper. With rain or snow, there may be some feed in the trough which will get wet but this feed will be quickly consumed.
Feeders should be positioned on relatively flat terrain. This feeder is not recommended for pigs smaller than about 40 lbs.
The trough assembly and the feed adjustment mechanism are the same all three capacities. Our 40 bushel feeder has one hopper ring. We add one more ring for our 60 bushel capacity feeder. Our 80 bushel feeder has three hopper rings.
