 With feed being single largest expense of running cattle, emphasis needs to focused on reducing waste, especially when margins come under pressure.

Hustler Equipment USA have released an innovative new feeder which universities are claiming to substantially reduce waste by well over 20% and improve feed efficiency and conversion when compared to traditional bale processors, unrollers and hay rings. Recent tests have shown that when Broome grass bales are distributed into a fixed volume feeder by Hustler’s Chainless bale feeder the feed weighed in at 32% less than a conventional unroller feeding the same Broome grass bales resulting in a huge advancement in feed efficiency, palatability and saving of hay.

The Hustler feeding system, doesn’t chop or destroy the nutrition in the forage either retaining the highly nutritional leaves, and full stem lengths which reduces consumption and the passage rate of the feed in the digestive system. Further tests by university extensions have shown that cattle feed short-stem hay consumed 2.5% of their body weight in dry matter when compared to long-stem hay their intake reduced by 28% to just 1.8% of their body weight and still maintained their good body condition! This is due to better nutrient uptake from long-stem hay and 100% of these savings return to your bottom-line.
