Default Stand Fill Feeders?

I am getting to the age I need to go to stand and fill or winch/cable style. How do the stand and fills hold up to hogs? Do they throw corn far enough like a regular feeder? Other issues that might need to be addressed? I think I would build myself using my current 55 gallon drum feeders-any build suggestions?

They throw corn the same. Krivoman makes a cool direction flanged feeder head that Iíve been wanting to try. It looks like it launches corn. I personally have had no issues with pigs but am curious to hear other peopleís opinions there.

Hereís what Iíve seen as far as using a 55 gal barrel. You can find this video on YouTube

All I did was cut the length of the legs down on mine. Just shorten the leg length.

My stand and fills are holding up to hogs (and cows) just fine. I guess it really depends on how well yours is built and the base... The ASFs at Bucees are hard to beat for the $399 price....

This is what I did too. I rarely have pigs and trap the coons. Beats the hail out of climbing a ladder in the bed of my truck....with 50 lbs. of corn.

I was in the same boat. Tired of messing with the winches or climbing a ladder. I've been buying lamco.
The low and throw are great. Really slings the corn out.

Have had nothing but luck with these. I'm not against any of the others mentioned, I just haven't used them.

We've been replacing all our tall corn feeders and winch up feeders with stand and fills over the last few years. I've been buying the 1000# All Seasons and haven't had any damage or issues from hogs, cows or coons. The welded wire cages are well built, and they sling a wide pattern of corn just fine.

Texas Wildlife supply. The very best on the market. If there’s a tougher feeder then I haven’t seen it.

Unless you stake it firmly the hogs can toss them around empty.So far ours are holding up well and we won't go back to the winch ups.

I have several Lamco low and throw feeders now and there isn’t any other stand and fill that I would recommend other than those.

OP whichever one you get you will wish you did it years ago. I can’t recommend the Lamco Low and Throw enough. It’s virtually indestructible. I’ve had Axis, Deer, Hogs, Goats, and cows all over mine for 5 years without issues.

The best for the price is the EZ Feeder from Bucees.

Do it and you'll be mad that you didn't change sooner. those hog and cow pics are funny. I've had hogs move mine a couple feet and turn it around but never over. Horses thats different. Dang horses got the lid off and what corn they couldn't reach was ruined from rain.

I have all kinds of them. ASF, Lamco, Triple Cs, outbackís, and TWS.


The best feeders I have are the Texas Wildlife Supply stand and fills.

I own 7 LAMCo low and throws as I get them at dealer pricing.

Hard to beat them. Buy once cry once.

5 of them are rotated around ranches exclusively for hogs with cows around. Not a single issue. They sling corn a LONG ways
