Nearly 2400 years ago, a famous Greek philosopher wrote, “Necessity, who is the mother of invention.” Since that time, inventors in emerging societies around the world have proven time and again the truth of Plato’s remark. Beginning in 2007, Stull Feeders, a small family-owned company based in Harrison, Arkansas, again proved that Plato had it right!
Farmers and ranchers everywhere know firsthand the risks involved in trying to fill the feed troughs before the stampede of hungry cows gets close. “Peaceful” and “easy” are definitely not words generally associated with the chore of feeding farm animals.
When Randy Stull, CEO and founder of Stull Feeders, was injured in 2006 while feeding his cattle, he decided there had to be a better way. During recuperation from his injuries, he used his time to design a product that safely and efficiently fed his cattle – a way to enjoy some peaceful, easy feedin’ while avoiding the stampede.
In the fall of 2007, Stull Feeders started selling early versions of the Stull Feeder to friends and family. Excitement grew and Randy finalized his design. In early 2008, Stull Feeders proudly announced its new line of ATV and UTV-mounted feeders, all designed to give cattlemen - not the cattle - control over the feeding process.
The standard Stull Feeder has a hopper with a capacity of 200 lbs. of feed (400 lbs. with optional extension) and is gravity fed, making it a perfect method for filling any bunk feeder. Mounted on any ATV or UTV, the feeder features a retractable top which allows for easy loading (there’s that easy word again!); its long handle permits the driver to easily open the feed chute door and regulate flow into the bunk while safely seated. When feeding time is over, the tapering chute folds up for easy storage.
These laser-crafted Stull Feeders are manufactured under the careful supervision of Randy and his team and are available in standard galvanized finish. Customers everywhere will value the durability of quality materials used in manufacturing.
Experienced cattlemen and farmers are excited by the practical design and easy-to-use Stull Feeder. “Just one use and you’ll understand what we mean when we say, peaceful, easy feedin’,” says Randy.
Take control of feeding time and enjoy your own peaceful, easy feedin’ with an innovative Stull Feeder.
