"Before installing the system I was was feeding 5 kilos of bought in ration but because of the ability to create the right mix this has now reduced to 2 kilos.' Not only this but phase feeding creates a better transition"Rick Buckle, Buckle Farms, Out Newton near Spurn Head, Humberside
"I spoke to Collinson, Adrian, the chap I worked with was really helpful and their flat rate system, F4, seemed like a good piece of kit, it is robust and was exactly what I was looking for, I completed my system with a Collinson silo which is galvanised with a Slate Blue Plasteel finish and a conveyor to take the feed from the silo into the parlour. I would definitely recommend F4"Eilir Evans, Llandysul, West Wales
