Feed Pad

Maximise your feed utilisation and reduce any risk with feeding out in the winter.

 
 

Do it all with a feed pad

A Feed Pad is designed for cows to feed for a few hours and then go back to the paddock. Feed face, the amount of time spent on the pad, and also the fall to accommodate an efficient flood washing system are all very important. A common mistake is to underestimate the solids produced. To keep it simple take everything into account and plan for a simple efficient effluent system that can accommodate all of the above.
