Feeders that reduce waste

Pequea's line of portable and skid-mount bunk feeders reduces waste by keeping hay elevated and away from ground moisture. Accommodating up to 52 head

Pequea's line of portable and skid-mount bunk feeders reduces waste by keeping hay elevated and away from ground moisture. Accommodating up to 52 head of cattle, the 510, 520, 525 and 530 feeders feature a double-trough design for easy access by animals while recovering dropped forage.

Feeders are available with top-load and end-gate, rear-load designs. Top-load models allow for feeding of both round and square bales, as well as other types of forage. Designed for round bales, the end-gate model's three-point hitch system makes for easy loading and maximizes the number of bales that fits in the feeder.
