WHAT ARE 3IN1FEEDERS? 3IN1FEEDERS give farmers the control to limit the amount of supplement stock consume. It does this through the revolutionary saliva restriction system. While the 3IN1FEEDER systems can be set to feed unrestricted rations to stock, it can also limit the intake of sheep and goats to 200 grams/day and cattle to 2kg/day.

WHY ARE THEY CALLED 3IN1FEEDEERS? 3IN1FEEDERS can be used successfully to do the following tasks for cattle, sheep and goats: 1) Controlled feeding, 2) Creep feeding, and 3) Free choice feeding

HOW DO 3IN1FEEDERS WORK? The system requires stock to lick the feed out of the groove between two adjusters. Changing the position of the adjusters changes the ration that stock can consume. Research has shown that when the lick system is in the most restricted setting the stock lick for 5-10 minutes between periods of grazing. The licking period is limited because the livestock use the saliva from their tongue to get the feed out of the groove and the saliva decreases with progressive licks.

HOW DO I ... Train stock to lick from the 3IN1FEEDERS groove? Stock learn faster if they receive a memorable reward (a generous amount of feed) for coming to the feeder. Setting the adjusters as wide as they can before the feed starts falling into the trough will ensure this reward. Here, they will be able to scoop the feed into their mouth and are not being restricted by their saliva levels. Other ways to help train stock are to put some feed in the troughs and on the ground around the feeder. It is important to use a feed that has no risk of acidosis.

WHAT BENEFITS DO 3IN1FEEDERS PROVIDE FARMERS? No waste Feeding low rations with the 3IN1FEEDERS removes the need to feed any type of stock on the ground. This ensures there is no waste and 100% of the cost of feed is being eaten. Save money by feeding straight corn safely While feeding corn can be the cheapest way to feed energy to stock, 100% rations of corn are often not fed due to the risk of acidosis. Due to the lick system of the 3IN1FEEDERS, if the stock are offered a low setting, there is no risk of acidosis because they can’t eat fast enough to cause an issue. Another benefit of feeding straight grain is that it enables some farmers to fully utilize feed they have grown on their own farm. Save time The feeders hold a substantial amount. The 1800 feeder holds 1200kg of pellets or barley. If 150 ewes are being fed 0.5kg per day, the feeder will only require filling once every 16 days. If the feeder is used to creep feed lambs, it will also last a similar time. Although sheep need to be regularly checked, it reduces the time to do this – especially if there are bunches of ewes away from the home farm. No mismothering after lambing Pail feeding leads to mis-mothering because ewes will run off from their lambs to be fed. When 3IN1FEEDERS are used, ewes know their feed comes from the feeder and they don’t run when a vehicle enters the field. This also reduces stress of farmers because they can easily check ewes and lambs to ensure there is a high survival rate. Ewes will often not feed from a 3IN1FEEDER for up to 2 days after they have lambed – this ensures a strong ewe-lamb bond.

Even production The lick system reduces bossy behaviour due to it being reliant on the amount of a saliva an animal has – bossy stock don’t have any more saliva than shy stock. When the bossy stock aren’t at the feeder, the shy stock have more of a chance to feed. The removable Adjuster Guard further prevents the bossy behaviour of pushing along the trough because it has 100mm areas to lick from and there is no advantage in moving position. No gorging A common problem farmers have when introducing stock to high corn based diets is they can over consume and suffer from acidosis. 3IN1FEEDEDS eliminates this risk as it allows stock to be introduced to the feed at a safe low ration and then progressively increase the ration by widening the adjustment system.

HOW YOU CAN INCREASE YOUR PROFIT This page outlines a range of benefits that many farmers with 3IN1FEEDERS experience. Not all the benefits exist concurrently. There are a large number of assumptions made in the calculations and these will vary considerably from farm to farm. Please contact us for assistance in making specific calculations. We can provide spread sheets for you to calculate the benefits of using 3IN1FEEDERS.

USE 3IN1FEEDERS TO FEED LOWER RATIONS 3IN1FEEDERS Advanced Adjustment System can restrict the intake of sheep and goats to 200grams/day and cattle to 2kg/day. This is about a third the amount of other free choice feeders. While there are times of the year that you would want to feed more than 600grams/ day and 6kg/day, for the majority of the year, this amounts to costly overconsumption. 3IN1FEEDERS also feature the Adjuster Guard – an attachment that makes it impossible for the stock to walk along the trough with their tongue in the licking area (between the adjusters). It reduces over consumption, helps ensure consistent feeding between animals and minimizes stock being pushed while licking.

HOW DO I ... Introduce stock to straight corn rations? After stock have been trained to lick from the groove the ration can be gradually changed to incorporate increased amount of corn. The adjusters need to be set to a restricted setting then introduce the corn as only a third of the ration. A week later, the corn can be increased to two thirds and then full corn a week later.

REDUCE MIS-MOTHERING Pail feeding leads to mis-mothering because ewes will often run away from their lambs to ensure they receive a supplement. Using 3INFEEDERS prevents this because ewes realize that they have a constant supplement source in the pasture and prioritize bonding with their lamb. Users of 3IN1FEEDERS frequently comment that ewes that have just lambed don’t leave that position in the pasture for 2 days after lambing – ensuring a strong ewe-lamb bond. An added observation is that when ewes are being supplemented by feeders at lambing, the ewes are very calm, often not moving until you are within 10 meters of them – allowing them to be checked easily without disrupting them.

EFFICIENT RUMEN

REDUCE SUPPLEMENT COSTS

Supplementing stock every second day is inefficient because the rumen microbes need to constantly alternate from digesting a concentrated feed in a short period to a lower quality dry/pasture feed and so on.

Corn is one of the best value energy and protein sources. The 3IN1FEEDERS Advanced Adjustment System allows farmers to feed straight corn because livestock can be limited in the amount they consume. This eliminates the risk of acidosis (barley poisoning) and allows corn to be feed in the place of more expensive blocks and nuts. When used correctly, corn may not have the required level of protein, energy or nutrients but additives like protein pellets can be added to corn to reach the required levels.

FEATURES THAT MAKE 3IN1FEEDERS THE LEADER They are strong All 3IN1FEEDERS can be used for feeding large and small ruminants. All the outer extremities are reinforced to withstand the roughest treatment from cattle. Being made from connected sheetmetal, all parts are stronger because they all require flanges for joining instead of butt welds. This also means that there are no welds to rust and break. Fully galvanized All parts are galvanized, not painted. This ensures the product will last a long time. All tube components are hot gal dipped. These parts often sit in the mud and muck and rust quickly – 3IN1FEEDERS will last longer. Volume stickers This allows you to quickly determine the ration being consumed and make adjustments if required. Retractable roof The roofs can be easily opened and fastened on the same side.

Quality components All fasteners for the adjusters are stainless steel to ensure they are always functional. All rivets and tec screws also have very durable coatings. Sight glasses These are a simple feature that can save getting off your vehicle and checking the volume in the feeder each day. Lifting frame The 800 and 1800 model feeders can be fully loaded and moved. The 3800 model is rated to be transported with 2000kg of feed in it. This is possible due to the built in chassis. Gauge sticker The lower side panels have a table to show what the intake of sheep and cattle is at each adjuster setting. The table is a guide only and is a good starting point for setting the feeder. Versatile 3IN1FEEDERS can be used to livestock or various sizes, such as sheep and cattle. The feed has adjustable skids that can be changed in height to suit either animal.

Testimonial We bought two of the smaller 3IN1FEEDERS at the Canadian Classics Show in Barrier. There was no problem at all introducing it to the feeder lambs, just showed a former bottle baby where the grain was and everyone (about 75 lambs) took note. I am impressed that there has been no crowding at the feeder after the first discovery. Thanks for making a terrific tool available to us. Keith and Cynthia Mailhot, The Meadows Ranch, Caribou, BC

SUSPENSION Mobile 3IN1FEEDERS have suspension to ensure the longevity of the products by providing smooth transportation. It allows farmers to pull the Mobile Grain Feeders at higher speeds because they can endure bumps. The MGF3800 has load sharing springs to spread heavy loads evenly over all wheels.

CENTRAL WHEEL POSITION Centralized axles reduce the load on the tow ball of the pulling vehicle. Other mobile feeders on the market that have the axle at the rear of the feeder can put over 800kg on the tow ball, when many vehicles have maximum tow ball loading of 300kg. The tires are only 480mm high, being 195/55/R13C, and have a load rating of 900kg each. Stock can reach over the wheels to consume. Lambs and kids that are less than 4 months of age have to consume beside the wheels.

TELESCOPIC STANDS The Mobile Grain Feeders have a stand in each corner. These prevent them moving when they are uncoupled.

ADJUSTABLE AXLE HEIGHT The axles are manufactured with a step. This allows the Mobile Grain Feeders to be set at 3 different heights so they are suitable for all sizes of stock. The axle options allow the trough to be set at the heights of approximately 300, 400 and 500mm.

LAMB AND KID CREEP FEEDING HOW 3IN1FEEDERS CREEP PANEL MAKES YOU MORE PROFIT ✓ Easy to set up and adjust ✓ Safe for ewes and lambs/ does and kids ✓ Can supplement ewes/does & creep feed simultaneously ✓ Lambs and kids can be controlled while creep feeding ✓ Standard with all 3IN1FEEDERS REVOLUTIONARY SYSTEM The 3IN1FEEDERS Creep Panel revolutionizes lamb/kid creep feeding by simplifying the system and reducing potential harm to stock. The Creep Panel (Patent application number: 2010903466) acts as a guard over the trough denying ewes access to the feed as their head is too large to fit in the gap. The Creep Panel is able to be pivoted to allow the feeder to operate either as a standard feeder A or a creep feeder B . They are permanently attached to the feeder. This makes repositioning the feeder easy.

A

SAFE FOR EWES AND LAMBS/DOES AND KIDS The 3IN1FEEDERS Creep Panel is safe for both ewes and lambs/does and kids as the Creep Panel discriminates based on head size, and not the size of the animal. Many farmers report that when the Creep Panel is engaged the ewes/does stand back from the feeder because the ewes/does know that they cannot access any feed. The system works well up until lambs/kids are four months of age as by then lambs heads start getting close to the same size as a ewe/does. By this age, most lambs/kids have been weaned.

VERSATILE Many farmers utilize a Creep Panel for feeding lambs/kids a free choice ration on one trough of a feeder and allow the ewes/does a restricted ration on the other trough. This system is ideal when lambs/kids are 2 to 8 weeks of age as the ewes/does can receive a small supplement.

REVOLUTIONARY SYSTEM The 3IN1FEEDERS Creep Gates allows you to implement creep feeding – the process of supplement feeding calves while excluding cows – quickly and easily. The Creep Gate simplifies creep feeding by pivoting from the transport/inactive position to the engaged position. The gates deny cows access to the feeding area based on their body size. It is common to attach only one Creep Gate to a feeder to creep feed calves free choice ration and the other side to feed cows a restricted ration down to 2kg/head/day. Creep Gate 2: CG2
