PIG CREEP FEEDER Come Out Of The Corner And Save Pigs, Save Time, Save Feed. Our design allows our creep feeder to be placed in the center or your creep area. The feeder is more noticeable than those mounted in a corner giving all piglets a faster start. Because our creep feeder allows all pigs to eat. Feeders mounted along a partition or in the corner discourage poor doers from fighting for their place at the trough. Our feeder has up to 3 times the linear trough space compared with rectangular, hide in the corner feeders. Our creep feeder is readily cleaned with no feed slides or crevices to hide pathogens. Polypropylene body, stainless steel pegs - no corrosion. Our feeder is easy to fill with up to twice the square inches of fill openings of competing units. No springs, wing nuts, or moving parts. Nothing to maintain. Hit with a high pressure washer and invert. There's no contending with mounting brackets. Move feeder from creep area to your pre-nursery on use in a comfort stall setup. The combination of the 2.5 inch (6.4 cm) lip and 2 stainless steel pegs practically eliminates our feeder being tipped over by piglets. Our 3 inch (7.6 cm) high wall feed in the bowl and inhibits rooting activity.

TIPS ON BROWER CREEP FEEDER USE

Keep feed fresh. Stale feed will not be consumed. Feed wastage will be kept to a minimum by initially filling our feeder with as little as 1/4 cup per feeding. Gradually increase the amount fed as required. This feeder can also be used to reduce stress during the transition from farrowing to nursery. A smooth transition is aided by moving our feeder along with the pigs from the farrowing facility to the nursery and placing our feeder next to your nursery feeder. Our feeder should be removed from the nursery pen 3 to 5 days after weaning.

Discussion: "Feeder easy to place in crate. Pigs went right to this feeder. Two steel pins screw into the bottom to keep the feeder where you put it. Very little feed waste. High sides let pigs in, but feed can't be rooted out. Pigs need to root around in the feed before they learn they can eat it. My favorite feeder and I would purchase more of these."
