WITH dry conditions having a considerable impact on much of western Qld, making the most of livestock feed options is critical.
The team from Black River Cattle Equipment has a product which may assist in easing the burden of stock feeding.
The company's Molasses Mixer features a Honda 200 motor with a 150mm butterfly valve and chute, ensuring feed mixes are thoroughly blended.
The mixer comes in 200, 300, 450, 600 and 1000 gallon models, each being chain-driven with a paddle mixer.
The mixer is another quality product in the Black River Cattle Equipment range which has a history of more than 50 years of manufacturing for the agriculture industry.
The company also makes hay feeders, grain feeders, yards, spear traps, loading ramps, cattle crushes and calf equipment.
Of particular note within the company's designs is the custom pinning system which ensures its portable cattle panels fit together in a structure that is robust yet flexible.
Black River portable yards are better suited to uneven ground and the panels require no adaptors. Black River Cattle Equipment has been using this pinning system since 1965.
It is fast, efficient and easy to erect. Single and double lugs allow up to five panels on the one pin. This pinning system actually protects panels by allowing greater movement, hence less stress.
