Practical & versatile feeding pads

We construct feed pads, either in conjunction with a new farm dairy, or to fit to existing dairies. Siting is important for a number of reasons; cow comfort from inclement weather, stock flow to and from the farm dairy, effluent disposal, and proximity to stored feed.

The design of the feed pad should provide room for all cows to easily access feed bins. They should also provide adequate room for machinery to move around the feed bins for feed delivery and pad cleaning.

We can construct feed pad at any time. Either during or after we have built the Herringbone Dairy.

We have designs for 2 types of pads:

  1. The meal can be fed into the sides of the pad from the outside surrounding race.
  2. The meal is fed in to meal bins from the concrete of the feed bad.
