Up and running
The feeder is in with the cattle and working tremendously well. I put the feeder in on Saturday, and the cows are already learning the feeding times. I have 20 first calf cows (therefore small) on the Auto Feeder 2500 and they all have room to eat. I have the feeder set to feed twice each day.
These are beef cattle on the feeder now, and most of my protein is soy. The feed comes out to all the cattle just as if you were pouring the feed out to cattle in a trough. No micro-chip technology is required.
