    8 Paddle Fan

    The 1.65m diameter fan has 8 paddles which can be easily replaced if damaged by a foreign object. The wider paddles move more air, and so blow straw further. 8 paddles ensure a consistent flow of material from the discharge chute.
    For superior wear resistance the fan housing is rolled from Hardox.

    High Performance Valve

    High Performance Valve

    Hydraulic valve can take up to 60 litres/minute, resulting in less heating of the oil, and faster response to the controls, and more power being delivered to the Tomahawk.

"We save both labour and straw, we do not need to enter the pens, and having a one man system makes weekend bedding and feeding much easier."

Tomahawk 1010

Turneys Farming is responsible for around 3500 pedigree Holstein/Fresian cows, working in partnership with farms in Northamptonshire, Buckinghamshire, Dorset and the Isle of White. Greens Norton Park Farm in Northamptonshire is owned by Roger Allibone and provides ‘bed and breakfast’ for around 500 of Turneys’ Heifer replacements.

Roger upgraded a 4 year old Tomahawk 8080 to a Tomahawk 1010, provided by Turneys, in January 2012. Turneys Farm Manager Giles Benson says that it was ‘a natural progression from the Tomahawk 8080 to the larger capacity Tomahawk 1010’. With three other farms working in partnership with Turneys also running Tomahawk 8080s no other brands of feeder/bedder needed to be considered.

For Roger Allibone, who uses around 1750 large Hesston bales/yr. for both bedding and ad lib feeding of straw with concentrates, the attraction of high capacity for 2 x large Hesston bales in one load, as well as twin crossbeaters for greater output was clear. ‘We save both labour and straw, we do not need to enter the pens which reduces the stress on the livestock, and having a one man system makes weekend bedding and feeding much easier’. And Giles Benson’s thoughts on the machine are to the point, ‘It does what we want it to do, and it is British built’.

"Straw consumption fell from 22 to just 9 bales a week in winter thanks to the shredding and spreading action of the Tomahawk."

Tomahawk 1010 with Weigh Cells

Streamlining husbandry and using 100 acres less straw.

Jeff Gibson, who runs a diverse livestock and farm shop enterprise with his father Mike and brother Andrew at Wingham near Canterbury, is enthusiastic about the Tomahawk 1010s contribution to the business since it was purchased in 2012. It is a versatile machine because as well as feeding we use it for strawing the cattle yard and our outdoor pig arcs as well.” 

Measuring Inputs

To maximise returns, ration control and straw use are significant factors in helping keep costs in check – and the Tomahawk feeder-bedder is helping in both respects. Adding a weighing system to a machine which dispenses both feed and bedding helps manage both. 

Saving Straw

The yards used to be strawed by driving in with a tractor and loader and shaking straw off the grab; now it is blown in from outside the yard and is an altogether more efficient process.  “In winter, we were using 22 bales a week, now we’re down to nine, and of course, there will be less dung to dig out and spread when we clear the yards.”

Balancing feed

When feeding - “we need to accurately balance the maize and grass, and to put out the correct amount to minimise wastage. I half fill the machine with clamped maize using a shear grab, then take bites out of silage bales and add them on top,” explains Mr Gibson. “The shredding drums do a pretty good job of chopping and mixing – and although they may not mix as thoroughly as a diet feeder, the machine does produce a nice open feed that the cattle tuck into.”

"The power of the new Tomahawk 1010 is impressive"

Tomahawk 1010

Beckhithe Farms is a family business and a major player in the UK beef producers scene, ‘farming around 3000 Angus cattle on 1700 hectares on the Norfolk Broads for a major retailer, via dedicated processor Dovecote Park.’

Gary Gray, Farm Manager, says ‘farming in this location can be a challenge, working in some of the most environmentally sensitive marshland in the Broads to finish cattle at the optimum grades required by our buyer’.

The system adopted by Beckhithe to meet the requirements of both the local environment and the cattle includes housing the Angus cattle, known for easy calving and well suited to the low fertility marshland, in a series of 51 open yards bedded with straw. These yards are full from September to April each year with considerable effort taken to ensure costings are managed. This is not surprising when some of the numbers are considered. Over 80 tons of food are fed daily from a clamp that holds more than 8000 tons of maize and grass silage. More than 10,000 full size Hesston bales of barley, wheat and rape straw are needed to bed down the 51 yards during the winter months. This is essential to meet the high standard of husbandry that Beckhithe set themselves, which is recognised in their membership of the Farm Assured Beef and Lamb Scheme.

To maintain a clean and comfortable bed, which is a priority in the outdoor yards, they are bedded every day, a job that takes around 3.5 hours with the bedder being continuously fed with bales. Beckhithe work with partner Teagle Machinery for bedding equipment, now running their 4th Tomahawk, having recently upgraded from the Tomahawk 9090 series to the flagship Tomahawk 1010. Before running Tomahawks Gary says, ‘we were running straw spreaders, but moving across to a dedicated bedder we found that we made substantial cost savings, with a reduction of around 30% in straw usage. Straw is like gold dust in the area because we are competing with power stations.’ And regarding labour savings? ‘We simply could not do without the Tomahawk.’

Operator Gary Noakes points out, “the power of the fan on the new Tomahawk 1010 is impressive, with the swivel chute enabling us to place straw where it is needed. The Build Quality is strong and I am pleased with the Hardox lining of the fan, which I think that will prolong the life of the machine considerably. I am also impressed with the way Teagle work with us, their parts service is second to none’.
