I have a food bit of beet bought off a fella, does anyone know about beet choppers. Theres bridgeway ones on dd, what are they like?
If you can get it delivered washed and chopped and clamp it with oat hulls it will cut out alot of work
Second that Kev ,bought a bit of it in washed ,chopped and mixed with hulls last year ,tipped it against wall covered it in salt tapped it down with front bucket ,2 sheets plastic and truck tyres over it …serious feeding
Ya I'll ask him, I dont have a diet feeder tho.
Neither do I ,fee out with front bucket ,weighed jeep and trailer emptying Tyone and with bucket of mix in it so al least had fair idea what they were getting ….cut out need for diet feeder and beet bucket ….although if I was going to feed more beet I’d try pick up a chopper bucket
When all is said and done between washing and chopping and feeding out would you be any better off than feeding meal?
Clamp a couple of 100 ton a year here with oat hulls it's two days work, when you have it in the pit their is zero work with it
What way do you feed it then? Wouldn’t be too much of it up this country
Mix it with silage and meal through tub feeder, its costing sub 20cent kilo dm when everything is took into account, you'd have zero issues feeding it out with a bucket either to stock if no feeder, it's a very stable feed to once you work your way across the pit face in 5-7 days their is zero heating
Says it holds 400-500kg, looks abit small tho
how long wud it last in the pit, will it go off, where do ye source oat hulls, none down here in kerry, we have a tub diet feeder feeding silage and straw each winter and we are thinking of adding sugarbeet, wud a 14cubic metre redrock diet feeder chop sugar beet
It will last months in the pit, millstream recycling sell bulk loads of oat hulls, it will chop it but if it hasn't the modification that the new ones have you'll snap the bolts holding the rotor to the tub floor after a while if chopping alot of beet
great, thanks for that,
Are they any good lads, would a skidsteer drive it
