Small Feed Bins for Hobby Farms and Bucket Feeding

Not everyone needs a high-capacity grain bin. A lot of people have small amounts of feed they need to store, dispense and manage and don’t need a giant bin hulking on their property. They just want something they can use to feed with buckets and not motorized augers.

For this purpose, much smaller and more manageable feed bins are desired.

Small Feed Bins

These great little bins will dispense almost any loose material. They are popular for storing heating pellets, bulk seed, corn, and yes of course grain.


These bands are sealed tight to keep out bugs and moisture. The poly material contains a UV inhibitor and it’s designed to be used Outdoors year-round the large slide valve is big enough for range cubes and enlarger granules. Simply pull the steel handle and the plate slides open and allows you to control the flow of grain into a bucket. A paragraph please note that an auger is not available with this Bend, 4 lower volume use. The roof and lid are both made of polyethylene well the walls are made from galvanized steel. The large lid locks down so it won’t blow up and prevents any rain or moisture from entering the bin.
