Feedlot grain feeder"It works great to feed grain to yearlings," says Oscar Heller, Southey, Sask., about his tractor-mounted feedlot grain feeder.
Heller built the feeder by mounting a grain hopper from an old junked Deere combine on a tube steel frame that fits the tractor 3-pt. on his Minneapolis-Moline tractor. The hopper holds about 50 bu. of feed. He put an orbit motor on the feedout auger at the bottom of the hopper and then extended the auger out the other side about 2 ft. To feed into his tire feeders, which lie flat on concrete pads, he simply opens the hydraulic valve briefly and a couple bushels feed out in seconds. He can feed into 10 tire bunk feeders in a couple minutes.
