Tray Hay Feeders

by Simon on 12 June 2016


The feed that the cattle, horses, etc. pull out from the suspended area that doesn’t get eaten falls in the trays. This prevents the hay falling and being trampled into the ground.

The floors have walls all around them to prevent fodder that falls in the trays being pushed onto the ground and wasted.THF-adjustable-cradle-01

The floors have 6 holes in them to allow moisture to drain from it.

The feed is suspended off the ground which means that moisture doesn’t affect the bottom of the bales.

Round bales are positioned so that they naturally drain water off the top. This is significant because the top of the bale is eaten last which means that the draining feature lasts until the bale is completely eaten. THF1-skidding-01

The Tray Hay Feeder has an optional attachment, the Hay Feeder Roof, to better reduce waste from rain.

When the hay is under its own weight suspended against the bars, it makes accessing the hay harder for the stock. The effect of this is that stock are forced to take less in per mouthful which means they are less likely to drop what they have worked hard to access.
The Tray Hay Feeder can be skidded while it still has feed in it.

The latest Tray Hay Feeders have no sharp edges. The bolt heads are round, there are no protruding nuts or thread and the fasteners are rivets. This feature makes it safe for all stock, including horses.

The Tray Hay Feeders have walls around the trays. These make them rigid enough for rough treatment from cattle and to be transported with bales in them.

Flat Packing Feeder

The ability of flat packing has multiple ways to save you money:
transport costs; and
assembly costs.
The transport costs are dramatically reduced because each THF3 feeder is flat-packed into a space of 2000 x 1170 x 200 mm.

The Tray Hay Feeder can easily be loaded with a FEL. Bales should always be loaded from the side that has the stickers on it. THF1-loading

Flat Pac $1000 plus GST
Assembled $1055 plus GST for more range and talk to Sheryl at Advantage feeders for more information.
