The all new Osborne Fast Start Big Wheel Feeder provides fresh feed on demand for growing pigs in wean-to-finish applications. Our feeders are engineered to improve feed-to-gain ratios while radically reducing waste. The round trough provides pigs with a less stressful eating experience and 360° access to feed.
The unique design of the Fast Start Feeder allows it to operate in gravity-flow mode for the first 10-14 days before automatically converting to Osborne’s signature mechanical-flow design. Small slides in the feed hopper bottom remain open until pigs turn the feeder’s agitation wheel, allowing feed to free-flow into the trough. Once in mechanical mode, the feeder operates just as a standard Big Wheel Feeder.
Fast Start is manufactured with Osborne engineered, reinforced RTM-Glas™ fiberglass hoppers and troughs and is available in with metal parts in standard painted steel and 304 stainless steel.
