Advantage Feeders was born out of a single brilliant idea: a feeder that consistently delivers stock the right level of feed. In 2006, when Gerard Roney, a young man working on his family farm, noticed the problems, costs and time associated with using traditional feeders, he set about creating and trialling feeders smart enough to accurately regulate the flow of grain and pellets. From the creation of those first feeder prototypes, Advantage Feeders has become a trusted supplier to farmers right across Australia, as well as in the UK, New Zealand, the USA, Canada, Ireland and many other countries. But while the success of Advantage Feeders has taken the company internationally, Advantage Feeders are constantly busy creating more innovations to help Australian farmers.
His goal was to maximise the nutritional benefit to the animals, as well as saving farmers time and money with a feeder they could trust to deliver the right level of feed – a feeder they didn’t constantly have to refill when stock gorged. Over time, Roney developed the revolutionary 3-way restriction mechanism that restricts stock to the most advantageous levels of grain, limiting their feeding based on their supply of saliva.
Our grain feeders are engineered significantly different to any other stock feeders on the market. The Advantage Feeders 3-way restriction system is the most precise ration control method commercially available today. The 3-way restriction system uses an Upper Adjuster, Lower Adjuster and Adjuster Guard to control the height, width and depth of where the feed sits. They have been specifically designed to prevent stock manipulation. In a restricted setting, stock requires saliva on their tongue to lick the feed. After a short time, the saliva dries up and the feed can no longer be eaten.
Advantage Feeders grain feeders have multiple adjustment setting options. These include, Ad-lib Feeding, Controlled Feeding and Creep Feeding. Creep Panels and Creep Gates can be added to achieve optimal lamb and calf creep feeding success. The design of the Creep Panel allows both ewes and lambs to use the grain feeder at the same time. Advantage Feeders range of grain feeders are built to last and we offer a 5-year warranty on all products.
Advantage Feeders also offers a range of Hay Feeders suitable for sheep, cattle, goats and horses. The range of bale feeders includes Cradle Hay Feeders, Tray Hay Feeders and a Sliding Gate Hay Feeder.

There is no waste, regardless of what you fill your grain feeders with, be it wheat, lupins, barley, pellets or oats. Rest assured, what goes in is going to be consumed by your stock.
Supplements feeding your sheep or cattle using our 3-way restriction system can help you eliminate acidosis, regulate bossy stock and encourage shy cows and ewes to all eat their fair share.
Optimal rumen development and function is a key element in converting feed to energy. When rumen microbes receive supplement frequently and in the correct amount, they are primed to maximise pasture utilisation. This means increased carrying capacity on grass feed and reduced supplement cost on dry feed.
