The high quality polyethylene construction of the flap is designed to be used outdoors in direct sunlight and throughout the winter months as well. If it ever does wear out, it may be ordered individually so you don’t need to replace the entire feeder.

Mineral Feeder Base

The compartments section of the mineral feeder has a very low profile of 15 inches. It’s specifically built this way to prevent tipping or spilling in the pasture. It also has a tapered shape and the large 38 inch diameter adds to the stability of the feeder.

The high quality polyethylene construction includes three built-in anchoring points molded directly into the base. They allow it to be secured to the ground if desired. The picture below shows the interior and the three large compartments that can hold up to 200 total pounds of dry minerals.
