Don’t wait until you see a change in the quality of your mix
Regularly checking your diet feeder for signs of wear and tear, in addition to routine servicing will help to identify potential issues before they arise.
We recently caught up with Catherine Howells from Blaengelli Farms in Carmarthenshire who prioritises the routine maintenance of their MechFiber 365 diet feeder for several reasons.
Regular maintenance reduces breakdowns
“We’ve had several MechFiber diet feeders here at Blaengelli Farm over the last twenty years and I can’t remember when, if ever, we’ve been let down. That’s partly due to the fact that we look after it; the feeder is greased and checked weekly for wear and tear and serviced regularly by Anthony James.
Peace of mind
Although the main focus for us is ensuring that the feeder is mixing properly so that the cows have a perfect ration. It’s also the peace of mind we have from knowing that because the machine is routinely inspected and well maintained that something is less likely to fail, particularly on a bank holiday. And if it were to happen, because even the highest quality, most well-maintained machinery sometimes does break down, we know that Anthony will have us back up and running before we know it.
Higher trade-in value
Well looked after and maintained machinery always holds it value and this has been proven time and time again when we’ve traded in our KEENAN machines and upgraded to a new one.”
