Title
(EN) Feeder for animals
Abstract
(EN)
A feeder for cylindrical bales is of the tombstone type that is, it includes a lower circular band (10) defined by hoops (12, 13, 14) and an upstanding sheet (18) of material forming a skirt. U-shaped frames or tombstones (11) are then attached to the outer frame and extend upwardly therefrom with the animal able to reach between the tombstones for grasping feed from a bale confined within the feeder. In accordance with the improvement of the present invention, the tombstones (11) are bent inwardly and upwardly so that the animal's front legs are confined outwardly away from the bale while the animal can reach over the inclined portion (21) of the tombstone and through the vertical portion (22) of the tombstone to the bale. The animal is encouraged to feed within the outer frame and thus any waste is deposited within the outer frame and cannot be trampled or spoiled. The animal is inhibited from pressing its shoulders against the frame thus reducing damage or breakage and excessive movement of the feeder. In an alternative arrangement a single sheet of metal is bent to define inturned flanges with apertures through which vertical rails project.
