FAST Start Wet/Dry Wean-to-Finish Feeder

Availability: Available


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-degree 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. The wet/dry option for FAST Start improves feed palatability and feed consumption.

FAST Start is manufactured with Osborne engineered, reinforced RTM-Glas fiberglass hoppers and troughs and zinc plated and 304 stainless steel metal parts. Water control valve and water pipe not included. Contact Osborne for ordering information.
