Little Feed Wagon Tackles Big Chores
The “Feed Train” ATV feeder is big enough for cattle bunks; yet it’s small enough to be pulled by an ATV. It carries up to 500 lbs. of feed for augering into bunks, dumping on the ground or filling buckets.
  “It’s already finding a place in small operations and big ones alike,” says Aaron Applegate, Applegate Livestock Equipment. “It works great for anyone that has been bucket feeding livestock or for larger operators who want to topdress. We have buyers using them to fill deer feeders, too.”
  The feed hopper is a translucent white color, making it easy to check the level of feed. The 4-in. auger runs off a 12-volt battery. The chute, set at a 3-ft. height, is designed for filling bunk feeders. A bucket holder at the end of the spout makes bucket feeding to small pens easy.
  A handheld remote on a 15-ft. cord controls the twin-speed auger. The auger unloads 5 gal. of feed in 4.5 or 9 seconds and handles ground feed, grain or cubes equally well.
  The compact feeder is only 50 in. high, 72 in. wide and 96 in. front to back. The full 18 by 28-in. hopper lid allows fast filling. Sells for $2,600.
