Superior Mix Quality
The Stewart family purchased an Abbey VF2100 Vertical Auger Diet Feeder in August 2017. They run a herd of 400 pedigree holstein cows and in 2017 they decided that they wanted to start diet feeding to spread the consumption of concentrate throughout the day, rather than twice per day in the parlour and to significantly speed up the feeding process. Following trials of numerous machines, they decided to go with the Abbey VF2100 twin auger Diet Feeder, due its superior mix consistency, build quality and overall reliability.
James Stewart said, “Having viewed the Abbey feeder working on other farms, we were very impressed with the speed of mixing and discharge, whilst at the same time maintaining a very consistent mix. The elevator on the side door is very easy to use and allows us to feed into bunkers within the yard. The low horse power requirement to drive the feeder means we don’t have to tie up a large tractor all of the time.”
