Feed-Ease Splash Feeder
A.J. O’Mara Group
A.J. O’Mara’s Feed-Ease Splash Feeder makes fresh, wet feed available to weaner through finishing pigs. Water is contained in a shielded, open water pipe above the feed trough. Pigs work a paddle to drop feed and splash down water. As pigs grow, their ability to work the paddle more vigorously means more water and feed are dispensed. Hopper agitation helps high fat and finely ground feed flow smoothly. An end-of-feeder water cup and water level valve offer additional fresh water.
