VF1450SD Diet Feeder: Boyes Farm, Leyland, Lancashire

When Andrew Deacon wanted to get a new feeder for his dairy farm, he decided to get an Abbey: it fit the bill and the price was right.

The VF1450SD is a vertical mixer that can handle all animal feed ingredients.

Roots can be chopped and mixed with other ingredients in one operation and incorporated alongside hay, straw and silage.

It incorporates an easy-to-use, digital weighing system that ensures the ration remains consistent.

And, after 12 months of using the machine, Mr Deacon says he thinks it mixes very well.
