Dairy Event 2009: Keenan shows new feeder

Keenan has managed to squeeze a 14cu m capacity body into a chassis of a size more commonly used for its 10cu m mixer wagons.

The MechFiber 300 has a deeper barrel body than previous machines and employs a smaller discharge auger running along its length which spins faster than before to spew out feed at a comparable rate.

Apparently capable of looking after herds of up to 170 cows with just two mixes each day, it costs about £23,000 and can be equipped with a £2000 optional bale-handling kit.
