Winkel Bale Hoop Feeder
Winkel Manufacturing’s Bale Hoop Feeder uses a unique bale suspension design, which restricts cattle from pulling hay out of the feeder and onto the ground, resulting in more hay consumed and less hay made into bedding. Suspension is made of 12 ¼-inch chains attached to 12 reinforced plates behind sheet metal for strong, solid construction. Angle irons at the top and bottom allow greater strength. Holds a 1-ton bale and has 18 feeding spaces. Skirting size allows you to flip feeder to accommodate smaller cattle. Manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $825.

Moly’s Hydraulic Sort Gate
Moly Manufacturing’s three-way, Hydraulic Sort Gate utilizes a more passive environment for livestock than the old, active environment with a person in an alley trying to sort animals. Moly’s hydraulically operated modular sort gates help lower stress for the animals and the people, which, in turn, promotes safety. Sort Gates can easily be added to an existing facility and are designed to add to an existing hydraulic system. The Sort Gates are operated by hydraulic levers or by wireless remote. Contact Moly Manufacturing, Inc., for pricing information.
