Electric-Operated Grinder-Mixer
To mix up feed for a small number of animals, we use an old electric-operated grinder-mixer that we purchased a few years ago from a Federal grain inspection agency in our area. The grinder-mixer has an opening on top and a spout at the bottom. We bolted it inside a wooden frame made from 2 by 4's and 4 by 4's. Then we mounted a metal wash tub on top of the frame. The tub has a slide at the bottom. We use 5-gal. pails to dump grain and concentrate into the tub. To mix the feed, we simply flip a switch on the grinder-mixer. The mixed feed drops into a 5-gal. pail. (Terry Hill, 4439 Capitol Ave. S.W., Battle Creek, Mich. 49015 ph 616 979-9492; fax 616 979-8102)
