Our Products and How They Work

Looking for an automatic cattle feeder to help you save time and streamline your operation? Solar Feeders automatic livestock feeders help you operate at higher efficiency by automating feeding for cows, calves, bulls, and goat and sheep operations.

Solar Feeders are built on the simple principle of timed and metered feeding from a portable bulk gravity hopper. The hopper is mounted on a highway safe trailer that enables it to be moved to any location for filling and feeding.

A 12 volt battery powers the direct drive motor and spinner plate which are controlled through a simple set timer. This timer can be programmed to distribute the desired amount of feed up to six times per day. And a solar panel keeps the 12 volt battery charged and operating in all weather conditions. All components are easily accessible and have a low maintenance cost.

You simply fill the hopper, position and stabilize the feeder, set the timer and let technology and gravity do the rest.

Operating instructions for the feeder and timer are found in the following linked documents:
