Small Feed Wagon Fits Pasture Poultry
Hanging feeders in 500-bird mobile hoop houses makes supplementing pasture easy, but you still have to get the feed to the feeders. Maple Wind Farm, raising 17,000 broilers on pasture, uses Kory 1-ton gravity box wagons from Premiere Fabrication.
††††The 40-bushel wagon boxes are fabricated from 14-ga. steel for sides, bottom and frame. The feed slides easily on the 27-degree slope. Mounting to a wagon frame is easy with U-bolts.
††††Inside dimensions are 72 in. long, 51 in. wide and 49 in. high. The running gear increases height to 62 in. The weight is only 390 lbs.
††††Premier Fabrication suggests the wagons, with their formed steel lid and rear discharge for filling feed pails, are ideal for a variety of livestock. They are also well suited to haul corn for corn-burning furnaces, as well as wood pellets.
††††The Kory 1-ton can easily be pulled with a pickup, lawn tractor or ATV. Maple Wind Farm delivers feed in the wagon using the same pickup that moves their mobile hoop houses.
††††The 40-bu. 1-ton gravity box by itself is $795. Itís available on a 2-wheel trailer for $1,725 or a 4-wheel trailer for $1,981.
