Feeding a herd of cattle in pasture can be a time consuming task. Maintaining a feeding system into troughs can be manually challenging. The simplest and safest means of feeding is to lay it directly on the ground. That’s what the Range Cube Feeder is designed for.
Feeding in the pasture, directly on the ground, is the absolute easiest method for getting food to your livestock. It’s not as simple as it sounds and it does come with risks and logistical issues.
Laying down grain can risky. If you’re not in a vehicle, you are exposing yourself to being rushed by your cattle. Overeager to eat, they can inadvertently trample anything between them and the food, even yourself.
The safest method of getting the grain to your livestock is from the safety and comfort of a vehicle and that’s what the Range Cube Feeder is designed for.
Range Cube Feeder Design
Hastings has built a cattle feeder that mounts to the back of a light truck. It allows you to dispense your feed from the safety and comfort of the cab of your truck.
The feed bin is welded with angle iron for heavy-duty support throughout. The 18 gauge galvanized steel construction will fend off moisture and rusting. The lid protects the large fill opening that measures 16″ x 33″ for quick filling.
The feeder mounts to the back of a flatbed truck and will dispense almost anything. The dispenser opening measures 10″ wide and 5″ tall to accommodate most cubes, wafers and pellets.
The large 36″ L x 35″ W x 36″ H feeder holds 500 pounds at a time and makes short work of dispensing. Once full, drive out to your pasture and begin your feed line.
The spring loaded vertical feed chute door controls the feed flow. A control rope runs from the pulley on the top of the door the cab of your truck. To being releasing feed, pull the rope to the flow rate you desire. The feed will flow down the chute and onto the ground for consumption.
The feeder comes with a straight chute that dispenses off the back center of the truck. It measures 10″ W x 24″ L.
There is an optional off-set chute available if you’d like to release into a tire track. The offset chute has a 6″ adjustment to move the dispensing point to the side. This is extremely useful if feeding in the snow. The truck tire track creates a natural trough in the ground after it compresses the snow. This makes it easy for livestock to access and eat.
