I have always used funnels on my barrel feeders. I'm questioning if there is really a need for one. I'm building a new winch-up barrel feeder and I don't think I'm going to use a funnel this time just to see how it works. What are your thoughts?

I had some barrel feeders I used for many years. Never had a funnel in any of them.

Don't need one but flow will be better with one. In barrels that I haven't had one in, there is some dust settling that occurs at bottom of barrel.

Hey DQ, what do you mean by flow better? Is there a chance it will clog up without the funnel?

I am running 13-15x 55 gallon barrel type feeders and none have an internal funnel, just the small one mounted to the bottom of the barrel above the spin plate. When the feeder is empty, there might be a little bit of corn remaining away from the hole but nothing substantial.
