Pig Feeders for raising Swine

Osborne Pig Feeders

Osborne is an industry leader in feed management and their quality products have provided an innovative approach to pig feeding at a time when farmers were solely reliant on traditional gravity-flow feeders. They were one of the first to introduce the on-demand mechanical-flow delivery system.

This groundbreaking concept led to increased profitability on livestock farms through savings in both feed and labor.

The mechanical-flow feed delivery system incorporated in the Big Wheel Hog Feeder Line operates differently than the conventional gravity-flow feeders. In this system, it is the pigs themselves, not gravity, that control the feeder, dispensing only the necessary amount of feed and nothing more.

This unique design results in remarkable savings on feed costs by ensuring that the feed goes directly to the pigs, preventing wastage on the ground or in the pit. With the new design, a better return on investment is guaranteed as more of the food is being consumed versus falling on the ground, making it an unparalleled choice for efficiency and profitability.

Cattle Guards: A Rancher’s Story

Let me tell you about a lesson I learned the hard way on my ranch. I’ve been tending to my cattle for as long as I can remember, and while it’s a tough job, it’s one I love.

My Cattle Guard Story

There’s always been a gate at the entrance that’s meant to keep my herd safe and secure. It wasn’t until an incident with a power company that I realized the true value of installing a cattle guard.

With right-of-way access granted to the company for the routine inspection of the transmission lines at the back of my land, I had workings coming through the gate about once a year. They don’t schedule with me in advance and typically show up and are gone before I know they’re around. The line workers open and close the gate as needed and I never really gave an open gate much thought.

This year was different.

When they accessed the property, they guys didn’t latch the gate properly, or maybe at all on their way out.  It was a week later I was running the fence line on the ATV and came across the open gate.

I closed it behind me and drove through the pasture looking for the herd but it was empty.  They had wandered off into the neighboring forest.

Rounding up cattle in dense and hilly forests isn’t an easy feat, let me tell you. It took me and a handful of extra hands on ATVs two days to track them down, load them on the trailer, and back to where they belonged. Needless to say, I was furious. It was a headache, a heartache, and a whole lot of hard work.

Well, that experience lit a fire under me, and I decided I needed a foolproof solution to prevent it from happening again. That’s when I discovered the magic of cattle guards. I installed them at both ranch entrances and it’s been a game-changer! With the pre-cast concrete foundations delivered right to the site, the installation was very simple. Here are some pictures from the project.

Now, I can give access to whoever needs it without worrying about my cattle making a run for it. The ease of access is incredible, and it’s a relief not to constantly fret about whether a gate has been properly latched or not. It’s like having a reliable extra pair of eyes watching over my herd.

If you’re a rancher like me, and you’ve ever had the misfortune of chasing after runaway cattle, I’ve got a piece of advice for you – invest in some quality cattle guards. I got mine from BarnWorld.com, and they’ve got great customer service (Ron I think?) and a selection that suits all kinds of needs. Trust me; it’s a small price to pay for peace of mind.

Don’t wait until you’re herding cattle through the woods to realize the value of a good cattle guard.
