Default Need advice on new stand and fill feeders

I am looking to get rid of my tripod feeders and use stand and fill only.

My question is who has the best varmint proof and can stand up to the hogs as well. I am tired of feeding the coons. Despite me having varmint cages on the feeders that can still access the spinner plate and have themselves an all you can eat corn and protien only buffet.

Thanks in advance.

With all the guys on our place we have a mix of ASF & Lamco

They have all been pretty dang solid.

I have 4 ASF and other than a battery change on a couple, 6 years and still rolling...

I have some ASF stand and fills. 2 broadcast and 1 protein feeder that dumps into trays on all 4 sides. All are 600# size. I've had them for a few years. We have deer, axis, and pigs - not to mention occasional goats at all of the feeders every day. Nothing has damaged them yet. The varmint cage around the spin feeders keeps the coons out, and it's too far to the plate for them to reach through the cage. Squirrels and birds can crawl in, but that's not a big deal.

The protein feeder with the trays feeds mostly deer. Most pigs can't reach the trays, and the rain cover of the tray makes it hard for them to get to the feed even if they can reach it.

I think what you will find is the consensus here on the green screen is Lamco has everyone beat from a quality standpoint with stand and fill feeders. Then, with a few modifications, the EZ Feeder by All Seasons Feeders sold at Buccees would play the role of best “value” in terms of both capacity and price point. At least...that’s the way I see it. Both do well in terms of varmint proof IMO because of their plate system.

Agreed with this from a popularity standpoint. I run both the Lamco Low and Throw and a modified ASF stand and fill Bucees corn feeder mentioned above and have no complaints.... The value with the Bucees feeder is surely that. I am impressed for $399

OP going back to your original post, you are not going to be able to get any guards on the timed protein feeder stand and fills that I know of, but the beauty of it is they can't get to the spinner and coons can only eat what the deer leave. In my case its not much unless its really green......and even then, its minimal.

The two best ones I have found are Lamco Low n Throw and Ranch King Mighty Buck. I had never even heard of the Ranch King till I saw one for sale on here a while back and took a chance on it. One of the best out there!

Loved my Lamco. I experienced that every pig in our county found it and got in it. They would crawl up each otherís back to get in the trays. The only thing that keeps them out is hog panels. But then those donít keep the cows out.

I just went through this. I shopped Judge, HB, Lamco, ASF, and ultimately went with Ranch King Mighty Buck. They all had their selling points, but after looking them over in person, the quality of the RK was unmatched.

All seasons times protein feeder. You can put corn in it, protein, or a mix. It stays out of the weather, and the hogs only get what falls to the ground from the deerís mouth. The squirrels and coons only get the left overs which isnít much. Iíve had exotics from audaad, black buck, axis, and red stag eat out of it no issues. Holds 600lbs and always runs. The coins canít get to the spinner to get more out.

Only had one hog that was big enough to reach the 30Ē tray, and he isnít around anymore.

We took all our 1500# broadcast feeders and cut them down to stand n fills and replaced the broadcast spinner with directional units. No more corn issues besides what the deer don't eat right at the feeder. We have 20 or so feeders setup like this and it is much nicer having all your deer at 30 yards compared to the broadcast where a deer on the blind side of feeder was 18 yards and deer on the other side of feeder were 37 yards.
