The feeder holds approximately 150 pounds of dry mineral or 200 pounds of loose minerals and will provide enough for 40 head of cattle. The design of the ground mineral feeder allows cows eat with their heads in their natural downward grazing position as opposed to an upright feeder. 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.
