Default Timed Protein Feeder

I have been wanting to put out a timed feeder with rice bran pellets since the first on the year. With the best option on TBH having issues and me not being able to get one Whats yalls opinion on the next best Timed Protein feeder? doesn't have to be huge. Used will work also.

Thanks

I guess I missed a timed protein feeder having issues...

Hard to go wrong with the Hammer, Lamco or the All Seasons stand and fill TPF if the rice bran pellets stay together....

I went with the ASF because it is a true stand and fill and I'm transferring all my filling to on the groun. Plus I fond one used at a heckuva price.

We are so dang green right now but the deer that are coming around to the pens seem to use it well.

The issues I speak of are the lack of availability of the Hammer which was my first choice.

I need a "used heckuva price" know where any more are laying? I could actually use 2 if price was right.

Thanks

I bought both of my Lamco's used from this site. I really like the trough design and side access for the timer.

Did you check with Krivoman to see if he has any Hammer units on the ground?

The Lamco through feeder should be perfect for rice bran pellets.

You could always build one if you could find a hopper laying around and had a little welding (dirt dobber) skills.....

A buddy and I built this one out of an old turkey barn feeder. We were not near as fast as Mitch on turn around time...............
