After successful trials on farms in areas with high numbers of badgers, IAE has launched the Badger Defence™ beef trough.  Designed to stop the badger’s ingress to the animal’s feed, preventing the spread of TB known to be caused by this, without harming the badger.

“Trials were conducted in High Badger Density Areas and Badgers were successfully excluded from feeding” (Antony Pope of South West TB Farm Advisory Service)

  • 230mm approx deep trough
  • Comes with verticle legs as standard
  • 2x welded RHS bracings for added strength
  • Spinning rollers fitted to prevent grip on all four sides, which helps to stop the badger’s ingress to the animal feed preventing the spread of TB (Badger Defence)

Note: This equipment is Hot Dip Galvanised to BS EN ISO 1461, however, where the equipment will be in prolonged contact with silage or other mineral rich water, it is recommended that food safe or non-toxic epoxy is applied to areas of the product which will be in contact with silage, feed or water before use, and then periodically thereafter when it is empty, clean and dry in order to prevent corrosion of the steel and zinc and therefore extend the life of the equipment.
