Is your feed mixed consistently every day? Tom Oelberg, feed specialist with Diamond V, recommends using the following checklist to reduce variation in TMRs from load to load and within loads.

  • Are the blades sharp?
  • Is the kicker plate in good condition?
  • Is there good clean out?
  • Are load cells weighing accurately?
  • Is the feeder allowing proper mix time after the last ingredient is added?
  • Is wagon level during loading?
  • Is there twine wrapped around the mixer screws or augers? 
  • Is there feed built-up around the screws?
  • Do you have super magnets installed on the discharge chute?
