THE BOSS three-point-linkage single bale feeder is the most efficient feeder on the market and can handle almost any type of bale, even frozen mid-winter bales. With the rising costs of hay and feed supplements, wastage is becoming more of an issue with its impact on farmers’ bottom line. If a round bale is rolled out behind a bale-bed pickup it creates a wide mat which cattle will walk over in order to get to the tastiest parts while leaving the rest untouched. The same result is achieved using traditional ring feeders whereby up to 30% can be left uneaten. The Boss allows farmers to produce a narrow windrow of feed and scatter the exact amount required where needed ensuring the whole bale is used efficiently.
ROUND AND SQUARE BALES
The Boss is designed to feed out both round and square bales (with the addition of a square bale kit*) efficiently, eliminating the need to buy a second machine.
FEEDS OUT BOTH SIDES
It doesn’t matter which way the bale is loaded into the cradle as a reversible drive system enables feeding from both sides, making it easier when working on the side of a hill.
The feeder body is fully enclosed (floor, front, back) meaning there is no wastage of feed through the cradle and its curvature ensures every last bit is fed out. The feed bed is made of pressed steel for extra strength and durability. The body is also slightly longer than most others (1.560m) which means it can easily accommodate 6 ft bales and those odd bales you sometimes get.
