WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ? Animal Feed storage bin or barrel’s or plastic bags, sitting on the ground crates condensation and damp, Resulting in mouldy feed that is feed to your Animal
Equine Technologist Green-Mount Campus TESTING RESULTS Below
SmartBunker maintain’s a high level of hygiene due to low levels of mould and yeast growth.
Storing feed in metal dustbins is not recommended due to the likelihood of condensation (first project) development and an increased moisture content that can promote mould and yeast growth.
Storing feed in plastic feed bags with no other protection did not reduce feed hygiene in this study however it is not recommended due to the unstable environment within the plastic bag and the potential for vermin to contaminate feed with faeces and urine.

    I am very happy with the Smart Bunker. I use it to store calf ration in the calf shed. I buy 6 bags of ration put them in and take out as I need it. I don’t have to worry about drawing vermin or birds and the ration is always dry and in top condition when I need it. With regards to making improvements the only thing that might be beneficial to some people would be a hopper with a larger capacity. I wish you well

    Great product. Well designed and thought out. Would potentially be interested in a larger one if it came to market.

    ‘I have had my SmartBunker since March and to be honest, I have no idea how I was happy with my feed storage before that! It was very easy to set up, is extremely solid and takes up much less space than my old metal bin. I instantly realised that I wouldn’t be wasting any feed or have to break my back trying to get the last bits out of the corners. The chute system is genius and means that the oldest feed is used first and there is never any old or contaminated feed in the bunker which means I can make sure that my horse is eating feed at its best at all times. It is totally sealed and waterproof so I could keep it outside if I wanted to and there is no chance of any rats/mice getting in. What a brilliant piece of kit!’

    Keep meaning to post this. I have been using my Smart Bunkers for about a year now to store my bulk horse feed. They are great!!! Can’t recommend them enough! They hold 8, 20kg bags with ease and keeps it fresh (not that it really gets a chance to go off), but they also keep my feed room nice and clean and rodent free.

    Hi Niall
    The bunkers are great
    I understand why your bins are the size they are, and it makes perfect sense.
    The principal you use if very good. It allows to use the “older” feed first. The easy access to the feed is very good as well. So yes,

    All the best,

    Folks Even the Animal health were impressed

    Customers review near 7 years later having a smart bunker that’s still going strong with another smart bunker on it’s way

    Deborah Kieboom placed order with a reply to say thanks and how or where she had seen the smart bunker.

    Hi Niall,

    I found you because l already have a smartbunker and it works so well for animal feed, I wanted to get another to replace the salt/grit bins I was using up to now…

    Animal health visited me a few years ago and the chap was so impressed he was taking pictures to show colleagues and would also recommend to other smallholders..

    I asked when or where did you buy the smart bunker

    Am not sure where I got it, might have been on ebay when you were in early days maybe 2013.

    I have my current one set up to do a mix of grains for my poultry, but the new one will be to hold feed for my goats. It will free up a ton of floor space in my feed area…and less likely for the goats to raid it as well if they break out as I tend to leave the lid up on the grit bins when I am tired lol.

    Can I have a blue one please, I will keep poultry food in black, and goat feed in blue…

    It is me confusing matters by talking about grit bins… these were my old storage system… but they aren’t very practical and hold stuff in the bottom, plus it isn’t a first in first out (FIFO) system which is much better for keeping feed dispensed within expiry dates etc.

    Your bins are great because they fit the FIFO principle, and I hang a clipboard near for expiry/lot numbers of feed bags. Dry, no vermin can get in and the other thing I have noticed is no condensation. Much smaller footprint compared to the giant bins I was using before.

    Thanks

    I bought the smart bunker at the millstreet machinery show in Cork in January this year. We absolutely love the smart bunker and will be ordering at least one more later on in the year. Feed is perfectly dry and safe from rodents. 10/10.
    Thanks
    Jack
