Custom Stainless Steel Mineral Block Holder
Ask our Mid Valley cattle handling equipment experts for a custom designed stainless steel mineral block holder for cattle to hold mineral blocks and salt blocks.
Our 2 block, 3 block, and bi-carb cow mineral block feeder tub 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.
Driven by Customer Input
Input from our customers revealed that they had difficulty finding the correct spot to place or hold cow mineral blocks and salt blocks. Some were simply placed in the feed alley and pushed up with every feeding. Others were left in corners in the hope that the cattle would somehow find them. In some cases, the cattle mineral block holder was not put out at all.
Our dairy farm customers wanted a better solution and we suspect that maybe you do too.
Customizing Cow Mineral Feeder Tubs
Our heavy duty mineral block holder has been 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 standard for mineral feeder tubs that will fit most situations.
We took the main components from all previous custom installations and designed a standard mineral block holder for cattle to accommodate 3 cost-effective solutions. Our welded, heavy-duty, stainless steel constructed mineral feeder tubs can easily be mounted in several ways:
- On a 1.5 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)
