DE Engineers are currently developing a fully automatic feed system utilising our unique feed tray design as used in our round feeders to reduce feed waste. This system can draw feed from large field bins or silos greatly reducing time required to feed stock.
We have designed the drive system of the auto feeder with a 24 volt solar powered motor controlled by a Bluetooth timer. The auto feeder can also be connected to the internet via wireless sim to operate remotely with the addition of a camera with live video feed of the feed tray.
Our range of sheep feeders are guaranteed to be the strongest sheep feeders manufactured from from longer lasting 40nb galvanized pipe, have a ‘Lick style” feed ring which is adjustable to suit lot feeding and are easy to move with skids and fork shoes are available.
Our sheep feeders offer the largest feed trough circumference and are recommended to feed up to 200 head of sheep per feeder.
Huge savings on feed has prompted our 3 barrel feeders to now become one of our biggest exports to the Eastern States.
The ‘lick style’ feed ring stops sheep from overfeeding while saving feed on spillage by forcing sheep to use their tongue to access feed from a ‘vee’ shaped gap formed between the angled tray and adjustable feed ring. This unique design stops sheep from standing on the feed and will also work well with pellets.

Because of the limited amount of food left in the feed tray extra rain guards are not usually necessary but steel removable rain guards are available and are supplied to be installed on farm so the feeders do not need a pilot vehicle during transport.
Only DE Engineers sheep feeders are build with stiffeners under the base cone so they can be filled with the extra weight whole grains including lupins. The base frame is made from longer lasting galvanised pipe (not square tube).
Our small cattle feeders are ideal for feeding calves and can be fitted with an optional feed blow in tube.
D E Engineers “Cattle Feeder” work by allowing cattle to nudge the feed ring to allow feed into the feed tray. This means the cattle keep the feed tray empty, eliminating rotten feed and rusted feed trays.
Recommended for between 60-90 head of cattle.
Rain guards are extra and are supplied to be installed on farm so the feeders do not need a pilot vehicle during transport.
