Maybe someone had sorted something.

Perhaps a secondhand Orby auger from some lad updating his milking parlour?
The end with the motor on, obviously.
Could be worth asking a milking machine fitter if he knows of anything, otherwise set up a Done Deal alert.

Auger would be the cleanest and simplest way to do it.

After many decades of service one of the crush uprights started rotting at ground level and was pushed outwards by a cow.

To save us the effort of breaking concrete and putting down a new upright we cut the cap off the existing upright and shoved a length of 3 inch box iron down into it with some agricultural persuasion Welded it all back together and a lick of paint to leave it looking untouched.

The new box iron section has a 5mm wall so should hopefully be a lifetime job.

Is that a Nugent three point linkage side slinger in the background? Is it of any use?

Done same with mine!, bull backed against it and bent it back, only difference was i could'nt find 3" box anywhere so had to use 3" angle welded together to form a box and then persuaded down into the old box.
You made a grand tidy job of that.

Its a fleming but I think there the same thing. Spreads dung as well as any side spreader but only suitable for small amounts unless you like hardship.
