“I am running around 4000 ewes in drought times. I wanted to feed the sheep faba beans and thought the feeders were a good way to regulate the supply over weeks with no need to go out every few days. I found they work well with the sheep not using them when other feed is available, and starting again when they are short of feed; at the moment (5/08) a 46 bag feeder full of faba beans is lasting 600 ewes around two weeks (was one month) I got rid of the seconds from seed cleaning no effort this year! The lick feeding design of the troughs work very well. The sheep have kept condition and I am hoping they keep their lambs better as feed is scarce.”
