Car Tire Mineral Feeder
The feeder is a square metal tank with a capacity of about 65 gal. The tires are shaft-mounted on an auto hub and bearing inside the tank and spin freely. They're submerged in the liquid mineral solution which sticks to the tires and comes to the surface as cattle lick them.
McTurk says that car tires are well-suited for liquid feeding because liquids stick to the tread. The tank is filled through a fill hole on top and can be moved from place to place with a fork lift or front-end loader.
