Redrock - Paddle Mixer Feeders
The Redrock range of Paddle Mixer Feeders are recognised throughout Ireland, Britain and across Europe for their reliability of performance, build strength and quality of discharge.
Advantages of the total mix ration method of feeding cattle
- All forages, grains, protein supplements, vitamins and minerals are thoroughly mixed. Therefore the cow is not able to hunt out individual ingredients and must eat the very important, but less tasty roughage, along with the rest of the ration.
- Completely blended feeds, coupled with carefully grouped cows, allows greater flexibility and accuracy, feeding exactly the recommended amounts of nutrient to animals at the particular stage of their lactation and level of milk yield.
- Grain mixtures can be liberally fed to grouped high producers without over feeding the late-lactation or lower-producing cows, resulting in more efficient use of feeds and allowing farmers save money on the more expensive ration ingredients without reducing yields.
The capacity of the Paddle Mixer Feeders starts at 12m3 right through to the very substantial 30m3 feeder.
With the redesigned rotor, these machines are operated at low revs and so require less horsepower, resulting in a more fuel efficient feed, mix after mix, and continued daily fuel savings over the life of the feeder.
In keeping with the ethos of the Redrock tradition, this machine is engineered to the highest specifications of design and strength to ensure the maximum working life for the end user. After sales service is second to none and with a dealer network of service engineers the Paddle Mixer Feeder farmer will always be in good hands.
Benefits from the Redrock Paddle Mixer Feeders
The Paddle Mixer Feeders produce a feed structure that optimises the way feed is converted to milk for the dairy farmer, and likewise converts the maximum amount of feed to live-weight gain for the stock farmer. Long grass and straw, normally diffi cult to mix, is chopped to the required length-short enough to be totally incorporated into the feed, but still long enough to properly stimulate the cow’s rumen. As the fodder stalk structure is maintained, the need to feed other fi brous material like straw, is greatly reduced. Animals are able to more effectively digest the feed and therefore produce more milk or beef while eating the same amounts.
The Redrock mixing rotor turns clockwise and the material is gently passed through the very effective cutting system while it is mixing. When the machine is discharging, the rotor turns anti-clockwise. The reverse mix action ensures a perfect, even, fl uffy mix. The Redrock paddle-type mixing rotor mixes wet materials, such as root crops etc, with-out crushing them, so they retain their full feed value. After discharging, all the feeding materials are completely removed
from the mixing chamber - eliminating any wastage of feed, and reducing the danger of old feed contaminating the next day’s mix.
The ability to drive the Redrock mixer rotor clockwise and anti-clockwise ensures the rotor will never jam, allowing faster, safer and more effi cient feeding of all material types, without the danger and down-time of a blockage, while the farmer tries to clear highly compacted feed from around the auger.
Designed to handle Round Bale Silage
This machine utilises a rotor that is specially designed to effortlessly handle round-bale silage, incorporating a chopping system to cut fi brous material to the desired length for healthy rumen activity.
