Custom Stainless Steel Mineral Box for Cattle
Ask our Mid Valley cattle handling equipment experts for a custom designed stainless steel mineral box for cattle to hold mineral blocks and salt blocks.
Our 2 block, 3 block, and bi-carb mineral box designs can withstand tough and demanding environments. They can also hold up against the corrosive nature of mineral blocks and salt blocks. And, like our dairy cow feeders, we also make cattle mineral boxes that are adaptable to a wide variety of dairy farm installation requirements.
Input from our customers revealed that they had difficulty finding the correct spot to place or hold cattle mineral blocks and salt blocks. Some were simply placed in the feed alley and pushed up with every feeding, while others were left in corners in the hope that the cattle would somehow find them. In some cases, the cattle mineral blocks were not put out at all.
Our dairy farm customers wanted a better solution and we suspect that maybe you do too.
Customizing A Mineral Box for Cattle
Our heavy duty mineral boxes were designed by Mid Valley in response to requests for custom fabrication solutions. Although a specialty design is always an option, Mid Valley Manufacturing has developed a standard for mineral boxes that will fit most situations.
We took the main components from all previous custom installations and designed a standard mineral box for cattle to accommodate 3 cost-effective solutions.
Our welded, heavy-duty, stainless steel constructed cattle mineral boxes can easily be mounted in several ways:
- On a 2 inch rail
- Simply bolted to the wall
- Or bolted on top of a low wall for easy access, and to aid the effective presentation of the mineral salt blocks to cattle
