Description of the Basis Feeder
For economic optimal and physiologically correct free-choice mineral supplementation of grazing cattle and sheep
BasisFeeder protects expensive mineral supplements from rainwater and dung etc. by help of a rubber cover, which the animals push up with their heads when they eat.
The sloping outer walls ensure, together with a comfortable height that animals neither tips it around nor steps on it.
Easy to move and inexpensive to transport. Falls discreetly into the landscape.
The special triangular form, reuleaux triangular inspired, with round corners makes the dimensions of the feeder small in comparison to its huge capacity of 66 litres volume, equal to a capacity about 140 kg granulated minerals, and is one of the reasons for a cheap price in comparison to other feeders.
A reuleaux triangle is a special geometrical form, and as visulaised here, the form provides for a higher volume than a circular form that shall fit into the same square.
