Big Wheel Hog & Pig Feeders

Big Wheel Hog & Pig Feeders

For nearly 30 years, hog producers have known that Osborne Big Wheel Feeders are the most efficient of any feeder made. With patented mechanical-flow design, "no waste" has become an Osborne trademark. Osborne feeders set a new performance standard in the industry.

Big Wheel Diagram Pigs turn a multi-spoke feed wheel in the bottom of the round feed trough. A feed sweep, located inside the bottom of the hopper and attached to the feed wheel, sweeps feed past the cone and out of the hopper. Bump bars located inside the hopper agitate the feed to keep it moving. Feed falls through the center hole into the trough, where the feed wheel dispenses it to the pigs. Feed stops flowing when pigs stop moving the feed wheel, radically reducing waste. Osborne Big Wheel feeders are available in Nursery, Wean-to-Finish, Finishing, Outdoor and Ad-lib sow models.

  • Fresh feed always available
  • Self-cleaning round trough with no corners for feed to accumulate
  • Round design allows for more standing room for pigs and take up less floor space than rectangular feeders
  • Durable and rugged design for years of useful life
  • Easy to clean
  • Mechanical feed flow reduces feed waste more than gravity flow feeders
  • Increase feed conversion rate

The Osborne Pivot Feeder

Pivot Feeder

Maximize sow intake without wasting feed with an all new Osborne ad-libitum sow feeder! Revolutionary and economical, the Osborne Pivot Feeder is designed to save money from the start by easily retro-fitting it to existing bowls. Further savings can easily be achieved because animal interaction occurs at the bowl–not at the feeder. As the bowl fills with feed, the lever becomes covered making sows less likely to waste feed. Virtually all flex auger feed tubes fit into the hopper and the lever can be custom fit to match the height of the feed bowl in the head gate.

How It Works
As the sow moves the lever of the feeder to one side of the bowl, a small cup inside the hopper is filled with feed. When the lever is moved to the opposite side, feed is dispensed into the bowl. Because of each lever's design, sows must eat feed in the bowl before they are allowed to dispense more, preventing feed from accumulating in the bowl and increasing feed savings.
