STAINLESS STEEL PIG FEEDERS

GROW-DISK™ CHAIN SYSTEM

The right hog feeders determine the success of your operation. For over 35 years, Hog Slat stainless steel dry feeders have set the benchmark for efficient feed conversion. Our time-tested design has been proven on farms just like yours; built with features that allow for easy feed management, repeatable performance and superior durability in all pig feeding situations. We offer two different series of feeders to meet a range of hog production needs.

Platinum Series 300

Our Platinum Series 300 feeder line is built using nickel-based, 304 stainless steel. 304 stainless steel feeders offer unsurpassed corrosion resistance in all feeding and environmental conditions.

Value Series 400

Our Value Series 400 feeder line is built using a chromium-based 439 stainless steel that contains less nickel in the alloy; reducing its corrosion resistance compared to 304 stainless steel. Value Series 400 feeders provide substantial cost reduction and include all Hog Slat’s time-proven design benefits.

Features & Benefits

AccuCrank™ Feed Gate Adjustment

The AccuCrank feature gives pork producers the ability to precisely adjust feed trough openings to reduce waste and quickly manage feeding protocols based on pig ages or size. This feature is standard on all nursery, wean-to-finish and finish feeders.

AccuCrank handles are easily adjusted to specific settings on the index plate and locked back into place.

AccuCrank handles are easily adjusted to specific settings on the index plate and locked back into place.

  • AccuCrank handles are “factory-zeroed” and adjust up/down at 1/16” per revolution for fine tuning gate positions. An easy-to-read numbered scale permits calibrated settings that are easily reproduced from one group of pigs to the next
  • AccuCrank handles fold into Positive Lock Slots to prevent pigs from wiggling the slide gate out of position
  • The AccuCrank handle is recessed below the top of the feeder to prevent interference from large hogs and damage that could occur when feeders are flipped for cleaning

Quality Design

  • All metal edges are hemmed, adding additional strength to high impact areas while protecting pigs and workers from injuries
  • Easy to clean feed saver lip reduces waste and strengthens the front edge of the feeder, enhancing durability
  • Drop tube holders keep feed tubes securely in place and add rigidity to the hopper walls
  • V-shaped feeder bottom keeps feed flowing and pigs eating, improving intake and conversion
  • Bolt together construction allows quick maintenance between turns, eliminating the time consuming and expensive task of welding if damage occurs
  • Mounting bracket options allow installation of feeders divided between pens, against walls or free-standing to fit any barn layout and feeding requirements
