Reduce Injury To Stock
As ewes and lambs have very different size heads, the Advantage Feeders Creep Panel design employs their skull size to exclude one group and ensure the other does not get stuck.
Supplement Mothers and Offspring
When mothers and offspring are fed together, the mothers often muscle the young out of the way. Fortunately, Advantage Feeders feature access on both sides of the feeder. Both sides can be independently set so that ewes can be fed a small ration on one side and lambs are fed an ad-lib ration on the other.
Depending on the ration allocated, the feeders may only require filling as little as every couple of months.
If 10 tonnes of feed is fed through a feeder in a year at $300/tonne, savings can total up to $300/feeder each year!
Increase Weaning Rate
In some instances, trail feeding leads to mismothering. Depending on the season, using Advantage Feeders can increase your lambing percentage by upwards of 5%.
