Feed Smart Automatic Feeder FAQS

On this page you will find the answers to Frequently Asked Questions about our Feed Smart Automatic Feeder. If you have a question that you don't see listed on this page then contact us with your question and we will be happy to answer it for you.

What are some benefits with using Feed Smart feeders?

The benefits range from seeing healthier, happier animals while saving up to 25% on feed bills and greatly reducing incidences of issues like colic, ulcers, and founder - to being able to live a more normal life without having to worry that your animals are missing meals or not getting fed properly.

Does the hopper keep feed safe in bad weather?

Absolutely – Over the nine years since we developed the Feed Smart feeders, we haven't recorded a single   incident where a Feed Smart feeder allowed any rain or snow to get to the feed in the hopper, when the lid was closed properly.

What is the useful life of the feeder?

Feed Smart feeders are made of galvanized steel. With the motor being the only moving part, we believe that   15 – 20 years of service isn't out of the question. Our prototypes, which were put into operation in 2008 are still feeding horses!

What happens if there is no sunlight to charge the battery?

The system has a 12 Volt, solar-powered battery. During our almost 2 years of testing, we have experienced up to seven consecutive days of rainy, overcast skies, with no lapse in service.

How many times can I feed each day?

You can feed up to 8 times a day.

How much can I feed at a feeding?

You can feed as little as 2 cups or up to 20 pounds at each feed time.

How much feed do the feeders hold?

Our Jr. Feed Smart holds 300-350 lbs., while the Sr. Feed Smart holds 500-550 lbs. The actual amount is determined by the type and density of your feed.

Can animals turn the feeder over and get to the feed in the hopper?

As a rule, animals do not show aggression toward Feed Smart feeders, and since they weigh from 200 to 260 pounds when empty, and have a footprint that is widest at the base, it is unlikely that an animal would tip it over. With the feed hopper above their heads, they only show interest in the feed they can see in the trough.

How long does the feed stay fresh in the hopper?

Because the hopper is moisture-proof, feed stays fresher than when stored in a feed bin or bags. The feed moves inside the hopper at each feeding, creating air circulation around it. During testing in the summer heat, we found that feed stayed fresh and very palatable to our horses for over 2 months.

What animals can be fed with the Feed Smart Automatic Feeders ?

Horses, Ponies, Sheep, Cattle, Goats, Llamas, and Deer are some examples, but even large birds, like Emus, can use Feed Smart feeders. If you aren't sure about your animal species, just give us a call.
