“These feeders are a game changer for our business. Their durability and their feeding capacity are really what's impressed us. And they're so manoeuvrable. You can move them across farms, between paddocks. You can move smaller metal feeders bewteen paddocks but they don't hold enough so it's not convenient. These things in Roswell Ag's feeder make quite a difference.”
Gabriel Pasmore, Forbes

The total capacity of a standard feed ration is 5.7 tonnes.
The total volume of the feed bin is 9.5 cubic metres.
CATTLE FEEDER MATERIALS
THE CATTLE FEEDER BODY
The Roswell Ag RCF 9500 cattle feeder is made of UV treated linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE). It's Rotathene SUPA UV, which has a UV rating of 20, meaning prolonged protection from Australia's harsh outdoor conditions. See the physical properties of Rotathene SUPA UV for yourself by downloading this brochure.
Picture this: A combination of your Teflon frying pan and your everyday Council garbage bin, but much thicker and stronger.
Here are the properties that help to make supplementary cattle feeding very easy:
Wet grains are obviously highly corrosive but the plastic feed trough will never rust
Stainless steel hardware
Galvanised steel legs
Superior toughness and durability – high impact strength
Flexible, so if it bends, it will bend back in the sunlight
High resistance to stress cracking and warping
Similar chemical makeup to Teflon, so the combination of feed ration and saliva are less likely to stick to it and if it does, it’s very easy to clean
It’s UV stabilised to the highest Australian standard, providing prolonged outdoor protection in harsh Australian conditions
Seamless moulded construction, so less chance of leaks
Longer life than steel cattle feeder bins
Translucent so ration levels can easily be seen
Reduced maintenance required
CATTLE FEEDER HARDWARE
All hardware used on our supplementary cattle feeder is stainless steel, so won’t rust and is very hardwearing.
LEGS AND OTHER FITTINGS
The legs on our self feeder are galvanised steel.
