Custom Stainless Steel Cattle Mineral Boxes

Mid Valley Manufacturing’s stainless steel mineral box for cattle is manufactured onsite with the off-site in mind.

Our 2 block, 3 block, and bi-carb cattle mineral box plans have been designed to withstand tough and demanding environments plus 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.

Customer Input

Input from our customers revealed that they had difficulty finding the correct spot to place or hold cattle mineral 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.

Custom & Standard Mineral Box Fabrication

Mid Valley Manufacturing’s heavy duty cattle mineral block feeders were designed in response to requests for custom fabrication solutions and although specialty design is always an option, Mid Valley has developed a standard for mineral boxes that will fit most situations.

We took the main components from all previous custom installations and designed 3 standard mineral boxes for cattle resulting in 3 cost effective solutions.

Our welded, heavy-duty, stainless steel constructed cattle mineral boxes can easily be mounted 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 effective presentation of the mineral salt blocks to cattle
