14 things to know about using grain feeders and feeding grain and meal

"Before I had my Advantage Feeders NGF1800 I had problems with my lambs getting stuck in the vertical bars of the conventional creep feeders that I used.

The Advanced Adjustment System gives the user superior control in rationing feed. This design is unique to Advantage Feeders. The feed ration can easily be adjusted while the feeder is full of grain.
The method of outflow requires stock to lick the feed out of the grove between the 2 adjusters. Research has shown that the stock lick for 5-10 minutes and then graze when the feeder is used in a supplement situation.
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.
