Tastes good and is fun for the pigs.
The intelligent pigs quickly get the hang of it. The pellet machine works like a chewing gum machine. When they push the lever back and forth, individual pellets fall out of the opening. Thrilled by the reward, the animal tries to get the next portion and is permanently occupied with the vending machine. Their urge to root is satisfied by working the lever, and at the same time, health-promoting crude fiber is ingested.
Pigs take to feed or straw pellets, which resemble the consistency of beechnuts or acorns, even more readily than straws. In addition, pelleting offers better hygiene conditions than loose straw, even for barns with very high health status.
Refilling is very simple. Either the hand shovel is used to fill in or a pipe chain supplies the roughage automat with replenishment.
The Pelletomat is available in four versions, Maxi, Combi, Midi and Basic. The Pellettomat Maxi and Kombi are the higher version with maximum supply. The Pellettomat Kombi has a larger trough and with its robust design is equally suitable for fattening and sows. The Pellettomat Basic has no trough.
Quality in Detail.
-The dosage opening is variably adjustable >> the amount of pellets released by a lever movement can be determined and adjusted to the pellet size used
-The stroke of the lever is also variably adjustable >> the necessary range of motion for the animals can be set and thus even very small portions can be dosed. The stroke of the Pellettomat Basic cannot be adjusted.
-Easy and very clean refilling by hand
-Or filling through a pipe chain system possible
