Do you want to feed lamb or sheep with less time and labour required while reduce the wastage of supplement?
This BRAND NEW Sheep Lickfeeder has built with a high quality design and a superior licking action.
Lick feeders attempt to regulate intake of supplement by requiring sheep to actively 'lick' feed from restricted areas within the feeder. It has the plastic inserts consisting of 11 Holes on either side of the feeder.
The feed area is easily adjusted by moving the metal covers above the plastic inserts in or out to either open up or close down the feed area. When the cover above the plastic inserts is slid out, the holes close sideways therefore reducing the hole to a small size so that sheep rely on a wet tongue for the grain to stick to. Stock become 'tongue tired' and leave the feeder to drink and rest, returning at later intervals to continue the process.
You'll also be pleased to know that the trough is big enough to catch split grain without being too big to stop small lambs getting grain out.
