Picture: 5ft round bale in a 5ft3" standard sheep feeder.
In trials over the winter of 2010, the use of a Toppa-Net over a round or square
bale inside a circular feeder, extended the life of the bale from being replaced
every 2 days , to every 5/6 days.
A saving to us of £60+ a week !
We had struggled for 5 years with wastage and the unsightly mess left in our
fields where the feeders had been , not so much the poaching of the ground as
the chain harrows and a bit of grass seed rectified that quickly, but the huge
mound of old hay/haylage that took years to rot away .
The picture below shows where a feeder was sited 6 YEARS AGO !!!!
It has taken that long to reach this stage and when it rains , it not only smells
of sewage but the water running off it contaminates the surrounding area.
We designed the Toppa-Net after a winter trialing it , to find any
adjustments needed and test the quality.
Our fields are clean, clear and there are no signs of where the feeders have
been and we had little or no waste.
The MONEY was our biggest driving force , as the cost of fodder rocketed.
We were disheartened to see so much being trodden underfoot and no matter
how many times a day we picked it up and stuffed it back into the feeder, once
it had been under foot they would not eat it and simply tossed it back out !!
The TOPPA-NET was a revelation !
5ft round bale in a 5ft3" standard sheep feeder.
Not a scrap on the floor and they could eat right to the very bottom.
It slowed the greedy eaters and provided a more natural rate of consumption.
We worked out that it saved us in the period from November to April, in the
region of £1,440.00 and the net is good to go again this year !!.
Its simple to fit in seconds and is strong and very durable.
Fitting is simple.
Place the net over the bale, then simply weave the loose cords in and out of the
bars of the feeder and back through the net.
Do not loop over the top rim of the feeder as this will prevent the net sliding down
as the bale reduces in size!
Secure both ends through metal ring.
To replace bale, only one half needs to be undone , then flip the net back....
The solution to a common problem if you use a standard sheep round feeder.
