Ultimate Reliability and Build Quality
The Slethei family farm is very automated with automatic scrapers and a robot milking their 50 cow herd, producing 9,000 litres each annually. They also have bulls and youngstock, plus 7500 laying hens on their 33 hectare farm.
They invested in a VF1650 diet feeder, having previously fed their stock with a shear grab. “We wanted a strong diet feeder to handle all our feeds. Ireland is a little like Norway in that they use round bales and pit silage. So, we trusted the build quality, especially after seeing our neighbours Abbey feeder. Last year was a very dry year we were able to buy silage and straw and turn them into an excellent feed for our stock by chopping and mixing them in the Abbey feeder. We only need to spend 30 minutes per day feeding. We are well pleased”.
