Supply the right amount of food at the right time. The Moultrie Automatic Feeder can be programmed via its digital display to feed up to 4 times daily. Feed times can also be set to between 1 and 20 seconds, thereby giving control of the amount of food provided. The adjustable mount makes mounting to most barrels and other containers used as feeders easy – fixings supplied. Operated using 4 x AA batteries (included) or via the external power jack for a 6V battery or solar panel. Housing made from ABS plastic with a metal spin plate.
Our tests have found that when feeding wheat, approximately 125g is spread when the automatic feeder is set to a one second spin. A further 75g is spread ever second after this. Therefore, when set to a four second spin, 350g of wheat is spread. 100g grams of wheat equals 2000 – 2500 grains. We have also tested the spread rate when feeding a standard farmland bird supplemental mix and found it to be very similar to those for wheat.
When feeding wheat and set at a height of 1m above the ground, the Moultrie Automatic Feeder will distribute grains up to a radius of 2 m (6.5ft).
