Mixer Wagon Seasonal Checkup

Mixer Wagon Seasonal Checkup

With new calves coming in and feeding high hay rations, be sure to check for worn out knives and thin auger flighting on your feeder wagon.

Those with vertical mixers should be aware that the plow blade/kicker on the bottom outside auger should be 1/4″ from the wall and the correct height for optimum mixing. The correct factory heights differ from brand to brand. Don’t know your correct height for mixing? Call 712.476.4500 for specs of your mixer wagon! Text a picture of your plowblade/kicker with the mixer model number to 712.470.1065 *This is very important for mix quality and cattle health.

Call us for all of your feeder wagon needs!

worn vs. new
Extremely worn out plow blade and leading edge on a vertical feeder wagon (**DO NOT let yours get even close to this bad!!)

Overfilling Mixer Wagon = BAD NEWS

Why Overfilling a Mixer Wagon is BAD NEWS

 

  • Reel Mixers
    • Adds extra stress to sidewalls, chains, and bearings
    • Breaks chains or bearings due to fatigue (loading side wall will bulge out)
    • Feed doesn’t mix properly (have your nutritionist do bunk samples – you will find inconsistent rations)
    • A rule of thumb: the feed should fall off the reel; when the feed rolls with the reel it means it’s too full.
  • Staggered Rotor or a Helix Reel
    • Feed must be able to tumble in the mixer, if not it is too full
  • Vertical Mixers
    • Have your nutritionist do bunk samples with the feed running over, the mixer full, and with it ¾ full to test what gives you the best results
    • Mineral and protein placement is the most critical on these mixers (be sure every animal is getting their share)

TIP: To ensure you are getting a proper mix on a reel or vertical mixer, take some oranges (or something similar) and throw them in your mixer and watch where they go.

If you need help adjusting your feeder wagon, your ration, or load size – give us a call at 712-476-4500 and we’d be happy to help!
