Feed Savings Calculator

Most of the savings are achieved by a reduction in the amount of bale which is wasted.

Feed wastage can be caused by various factors:-

  1. Bale is not teased apart enough making it harder for stock to eat
  2. Animals laying or trampling on fodder
  3. Bales which are unfinished in a ring feeder because the ground conditions are too poor for animals to reach the rest
  4. Stock rejecting feed because of dirt, mud or other contaminants
  5. Savings can be made by feeding the right amount of the bale, and retaining the rest for the next feed
  6. By feeding over a larger area than with a ring feeder, there is less competition between the amimals

Typical savings achieved by using a Hustler Chainless bale feeder are between 15-40%, depending on your existing feeding system (chain feeders typically save 10-35%).

Feeding Applications

Indoor feeding

It is very common to find Hustler balefeeders operating in housed cattle operations where stock are kept indoors during winter or all year round.

Open field feeding

Traditionally balefeeders have been used in pasture-based feeding operations, which allows cattle to roam free in the pasture and the supplementary feed can be feed anywhere throughout the pasture.

Bunk/Trough Feeding

Designed to be utilised in operations that have bunks, feedpads or troughs to improve the palatability of feed, and allows the correct amount to be fed each day. Hustler Bale feeders can be mounted to front loaders, 3 point linkage or trailed in these operations.

Ring Feeding

The Hustler bale feeding system is utilised in operations that feed stock with bunks, or hay rings to improve the palatability of feed and allows the correct amount to be fed each day. Able to be mounted to front loaders or telescopic loaders to simplify bunk feeding operations.


The Chainless balefeeding system is utilised by leading rebaling operations, to tease bales apart and feed directly into the pickup of small square balers and converts 1 large round bale into 15-20 small squares in less than 4 minutes, on demand which are more saleable and higher value.

TMR Loading

With a loader mounted bale feeder operators can load the exact amount of feed directly into the TMR and because they can tease apart the bales, it substantially reduces diesel consumption, mixing time, and maintenance.
