My livestock feeder is well built. It came from Platinum Feeders and is made in Ingram, Texas. If the feed is the least bit sticky, it will not fall down when the timer turns on the motor each day. The feeder is solar powered and the solar panel has no trouble keeping the battery charged and the timer is reliable. The goats and cows have learned they can knock it around when the timer goes off to get the sticky feed to drop. Whole corn falls down fine but the livestock does not digest it well and it gets wasted. Crack corn is better digested but even it sticks to the point of not falling well when the timer turns the motor on. I made the mistake of not locking the door to the timer control and the goats got inside and ate all of the wiring. So I had to call the company and buy new innards and install them in the zero degree West Virginia winter.
