Thinking about a free choice feeder with protein, where can it be bought and cost? Thanks Daniel

I would look hard at the GreenGo protein feeders ... Greengo Feeders

Boss buck has some good options as well. You can buy the spin kit and make it a spin kit later on.

Go bigger than you think you’ll need unless you live close and can fill often. Also get ready to spend some $$. That protein isn’t cheap!

I’ll second boss buck feeders. They work great and are easy to set up or move for one man.


Take Care,
Bub

Generally looking at around $11-$12 per 50lbs. for 16%and $12-$13 per 50 lbs. for 18-20% at most feed stores...May get a small discount, $.50-$1 a bag off on that if buying bulk.

Look at Texas Hunter Products. Lightweight, easy to move when needed AND durable. Plus, you can fill it from your tailgate (a big plus).

I'm in the camp of buy as big a feeder as you can afford. We have 1500 lb feeders and have to go every 5-6 weeks to refill. It really depends on how often you can get out to the ranch to keep them full. We got our feeders from Fredonia Peanut Company just south of Brady/Voca off Hwy 71 (great people to work with). I think they were right at 1K, heavy duty that should last a lifetime. We get our feed in bulk from them a well. I think the price comes out to around $10 dollars per 50lbs (not positive on the exact number).

There are a lot of stand and fill protein feeders out there or even lower profile large capacity ones. If it where me feeding on a low fence lease I would look at getting a timered trough style or regulated protein feeder. You can feed as much as you want or limit it to a dollar budget if you wanted to. You can feed during the daylight hours during hunting season also and feed year round. Protein costs are going to be based on where you are in relation to a feed mill. Down here I can get 16% for $10-11/bag and 20% for $11-12/bag from Lyssy and Eckel. Lot of larger feed stores have feed trailers you can rent and buy bulk protein and corn from to fill your feeders also. Some even offer a feeder filling service. If I am limit feeding thru a timered feeder I would not feed 16% but feed a high end 20% with a great mineral package in it.

Steve, when you have the time, fill me in with brand names of the timed trough & regulated feeders and any other additional information on them. Pm me if you wish. Thanks Daniel
