Liquid Feed Lick Ball (Adapt-O-Ball)
The Adapt-O-Ball is designed to easily convert various containers into suitable dispensers for feeding formulated liquid feed supplements to cattle and sheep.
Each unit is moulded from high density polythene comprising a plastic ball encased in a flanged tube (sleeve). Sleeve measurements are 110mm diameter, 155mm length.
To fit a unit, select a container with a depth of up to 200mm. If required, the tube can be shortened to reach a minimum depth of 100mm.
Prepare a template before cutting out the locating hole by tracing the circumference of the tube on the container surface. After cutting the hole, insert the tube (ensuring the ball is trapped in it). Finally, ensure the two lugs on the Adapt-O-Ball are secured under the surface of the container.
If you are installing the Adapt-o-balls into a pipe then we recommend using a 150mm PVC pipe and cut a bit off the sleeve of the ball feeders. You do have the option of using 180mm pipe that will hold more molasses, however as the as the level drops, the stock have problems licking the ball.
