  • Box Stall Drinker

    Heated Box Stall Water For corner installations in box stalls.

  • Mineral Feeder

    Your time is too valuable to spend it- "messin' with a mineral feeder"
    You've experienced it all - rotating feeders that don't quite rotate, welded legs that come unwelded, rubber flaps that disintegrate with little use, frozen bearings and feeders frozen in the ground. Our Brower - tuff mineral feeder is easily moved from pasture to pasture. Our mineral feeder is easily used by animals, protects feed & mineral and protects your time. Most any animal is attracted to this feeder and readily learns to use it. No training is necessary.
    NO EXPOSED SHEET METAL, STEEL LATTICEWORK OR STRAPS FOR YOUR ANIMALS TO GET CAUGHT ON. Solid bottom. Cheap imitations leave an exposed cavity (and leave a hole in your pocketbook).
    Molding process engineered to permit extra material to flow into center post for extra strength. Post has a 6 inch (15.2 cm) diameter base and is further supported by three partitions. Four notched flanges for easy anchoring.
    Heavy-duty 41 inch (104.1 cm) diameter flap protected by rubber disk. Before you purchase any other feeder, ask experienced users how well competitors' flaps hold up compared with Brower's flaps.
    Link pin allows flap to ride up when lifted by animal; this permits "give" and extends life of flap and feeder.
    High density polyethylene. Hindered amine light stabilizer, the most effective ultraviolet inhibitor.
    Holds three 50 lb. (22.7 kg) salt or mineral blocks. Can accommodate larger blocks up to 12 inches (30.5 cm) square. Also holds 200 lbs. (90.0 kg) of loose supplement level-full.

    WHY YOU WANT TO PURCHASE OUR MINERAL FEEDER AND NOT PURCHASE ANY MINERAL FEEDER ON A PEDESTAL OR OTHERWISE ELEVATED.
    1. Cows eating with their heads in the downward "natural grazing position" produced 17% more saliva than those eating from an elevated surface. Additional salivation had a direct positive influence on the efficiency of rumen function. Overall digestion was significantly enhanced.
    -From a Study by: McFarlane, I.S. 1972. Bovine behavior patterns. Livestock Breeder Journal. December, 15 (no. 12): 6.
    2. Milking cows were observed for the occurrence of feed-tossing behavior. About 10% of the cows engaged in this excessive sorting and throwing of feed. As a result of feed tossing over their backs and along their sides, feed wastage for these cows ranged up to 10 percent. When given the choice of eating from an elevated (28 cm - 11 inches) bunk versus one at ground level, the cows chose the lower level and feed tossing was not observed. The authors of this study concluded that feed sorting and throwing is an engineering problem. The solution is designing equipment which permits cattle to feed "in the natural, head-down, grazing-like position."

What's New

70 Gallon Open Trough Tank Waterer

Insulated Bucket Holder

PDF Print E-mail

Insulated Bucket HolderA very simple and effective water management tool. Your horse's water will stay warmer under cold conditions and will stay cooler in the heat of summer.

Our Performance One bucket holder includes a 5 gallon bucket and also includes a heat retention cover. The horse drinks from a “well” formed into the cover. Even on the coldest days, your horse should have adequate time to consume all the water you place before it. You know how much water your horse is taking

The body is foam-filled poly construction — solid and indestructible. Foam insulation with an R valve of 7.5 per inch fills all sides and the bottom. The most effective ultraviolet inhibitor allows years of outdoor use as well.

Pre-formed mounting holes on an open flange allow for quick and sturdy installation. Our bucket holder stands firmly on the ground as well.

Performance One has a smooth taper to a hole in the center of the holder. This design assures total water drainage for complete and easy cleaning — no hidden standing water resulting in mosquitoes.

When our Performance One bucket holder is filled with foam, a rigid fixture is used to evenly distribute material. Our sidewalls are smooth. Our overall workmanship is superb.

We've Been Selling Automatic Drinkers for Decades but We're Proud of our Bucket as Well!
