EuroTier 2018 Innovations: Alper feeder

New innovations from around the globe were launched at the recent EuroTier show in Germany. Farm Trader brings you some of the latest releases.

Diet feeders of all shapes and sizes were present at EuroTier including the new Alper YK5000 model made in Turkey.


This manufacturer is already making strong headway in a number of machinery markets across the world by being very competitive on price.

Capable of feeding 50 cattle, this five cubic metre capacity machine costs NZ$10,200 plus shipping. Included in the price is the option of a left or right side dispenser, plus an onboard loading bucket for the ingredients.

It weighs 1900kg, has a load capacity of 1500kg, has five fixed cutting knives and can be driven by a 60hp tractor. Scales can be added to the unit to measure the exact amount of raw materials required for the ration.

This new model comes with an Italian made gearbox and an overall two year warranty on all parts.
