Lean Machine suits pigs of all sizes

EASY adjustable height settings make the Universal Lean Machine pig feeder suitable for weaners, growers, finishers and sows, according to Newsham Hybrid Pigs.

The feeder has four height settings, which will replace all other Lean Machine variations, it adds.

The 52kg capacity hopper accepts all feeds up to 7mm pencils, delivering a small amount of feed each time a pig touches one of the nudge bars. Feed is moistened with water to encourage intakes, says Newsham.

The new bowl design is said to reduce waste and all metal fittings are stainless steel.

Each pig feeder costs £225 (01653-697977).
