Why own a feeder bedder?

Bedding

  • Labour Saving - one person can quickly and easily bed down livestock.
  • Save Straw, users regularly report up to 30% savings.
  • Livestock are cleaner and healthier - straw is lightly shredded for improved moisture absorbance.

Feeding

  • One machine, Two jobs - Bed down and feed with all Tomahawk models (except Dual Chop)
  • Reliability - If you can bale a crop, we can process it.
  • Versatility - Feed clamp or baled silage, haylage or root crops.

Straw for feed

  • Pre-process straw for mixer wagons using our unique ‘Dual Chop’ system.
  • Improve mixer wagon efficiency by reducing processing time.
  • Precision cut straw stimulates digestion for more effective feed conversion.

    Heavy Duty Bed Chain

    12mm heavy duty bed chain, resulting in less tensioning adjustments. The chain does not have anything welded to it, which would lower its strength.

    Large Diameter Crossbeater

    Large Diameter Crossbeater

    The crossbeater has 400mm diameter barrel, 600mm from blade tip to blade tip. Large diameter means more consistent flow and power requirement.

    8 Paddle Fan

    8 Paddle Fan

    The fan has 8 paddles, 230mm width from 6mm steel. Rotor diameter 1.5m. The paddles can be individually replaced if damaged. The wide paddles blow more air, and so blow straw further.

    Fingertip Controls

"Andrew has seen savings of 25% to 30% in straw and around 1 hour per day in labour since moving away from manual bedding."

Tomahawk 808/7100

Andrew Thomas and his family run a mixed farm of around 230 acres just outside Mabe in South West Cornwall; their focus being a high yielding herd of around 130 Holsteins, typically producing over 10,000 litres, and a similar number of young stock.

Delivering nd extra 500 litres per cow.

Andrew has worked various housing systems for the herd and has found that he is able to optimise the yield per cow by improving cow comfort through over wintering the herd in straw yards rather than cubicles. Maintenance of these yards requires a ‘little and often’ bedding regime that sees cattle bedded twice a day, every day of the week. Andrew aims to ‘provide a bed that is as close to a field as possible’.

With this system Andrew finds that he does not have the same frequency of lameness he has experienced with cows housed on concrete, with the incidence of mastitis being managed at a low level through the frequent application of fresh straw. Andrew calculates that these benefits offer a return of around an additional 500 litres per cow. 

Saving Labour - and 25% in Straw

To maintain this regime, which requires around 900 round bales of straw a year to be spread, a mechanical bedder is an essential part of daily life. Andrew has seen savings of around 25% to 30% in straw and around 1 hour per day in labour since moving away from manual bedding.

Difficult bales? - No problem.

Whilst the best straw is reserved for the milking cows, the last couple of seasons have seen some difficult bales which is where his Teagle Tomahawk 808 mounted Feeder Bedder enters the story. The 808 is Andrew’s third Feeder Bedder and was selected following demonstrations of the most popular machines on the market for its blow distance, the ability to deal with difficult bales and the simple layout of the electronic control box. Andrew selected a mounted machine due to its manoeuvrability which suits the layout of the farm well, with various buildings to work around.

Other benefits

The Tomahawk 808, which sits on a John Deere 6430, has also been used as a backup for the mixer wagon on the farm. With muck is cleaned out monthly, Andrew notes that it's ‘totally different’ to a bed prepared by hand. ‘Half of the work has already been done for you as the straw is well mixed in with the muck’.

Easy transition to the New Tomahawk 7100.

Would Andrew have another one? He has just upgraded to the New Tomahawk 7100. Having tried the new machine, Andrew’s son Will, who drives the bedder, noted the smoother flow from the chute, faster processing time and several updates that will improve servicing.

"Providing an Environment with Choice."

Tomahawk 7100  / Tomahawk 8500

Norfolk Free Range is owned by Steve Heart and comprises pig units across Norfolk, all certified by Freedom Foods and the CMI Red Tractor.

In total the units accommodate a 45,000 strong finishing herd, in addition to the breeding herd, from which around 2,200 pigs are sold to a Waitrose contract every week.

Norfolk Free Range are one of a few farms that finish free range pigs outside in tented hurdles, from the age of 4 weeks, and John Clark, Production Manager for 14 finishing units, is well aware of the benefits of providing the animals an environment which offers choice for them to be inside, outside, eating, drinking or sleeping.

Experience has shown that in these conditions the best returns in live weight gain and feed conversion from the animals are realised. Whilst the tented hurdles offer this choice, it also brings a specific challenge in keeping the pigs clean and comfortable when half of their running area is outside. With recent wet winters fresh in mind, along with straw becoming an increasingly expensive commodity due to the local demand from renewable power stations, owner Steve Hart started looking to mechanise the bedding operation to make it more efficient.

Reasons for choosing a Teagle Tomahawk:

The requirements of a straw spreader were clear, reduce straw usage, provide a deep bed to improve comfort, spread straw evenly around the entire bedded area, and accurately place straw so that it does not contaminate the drinkers.

Local dealer B W Mack (Machinery) Ltd. were keen to get involved in the project and delivered a demonstration Teagle Tomahawk to the farm to ensure that all of the requirements could be met. With their experience in the sector, Teagle offered a machine with a side chute – ideal for achieving the maximum blow distance, whilst offering a low delivery height suitable for the tent doorways.

Following the demonstration Steve ordered 4 machines, two mounted Tomahawk 7100s to offer greater manoeuvrability, and two trailed wide body Tomahawk 8500s, fitted with oversize wheels to overcome the soft ground in winter. All machines were delivered with tailgate extensions to make loading full size Hesston bales easier.

So 12 months after their arrival, how are the machines performing?

John Clark is keen on the approach of being able to deliver exactly the amount of straw that is required using a ‘Little and Often’ approach to provide a comfortable bed, typically achieving ‘an improvement in bedded temperature of around two degrees’. For the smaller pigs which enter the tents at around 4 weeks this is essential, and you can see them climbing ‘into’ the bed of straw. John notes that ‘whilst a similar amount of labour is required, the straw savings are substantial as a typical unit is using between 20 to 40 Hesston bales each week, depending upon the weather conditions’. And from the driver’s point of view; operator Sam at the Lexam unit says ‘You can’t beat it’.
