When looking for a mobile multipurpose trough, we had no hesitation in purchasing a Normanby Fibreglass trough. In fact we purchased a further three after finding how useful and robust they are.
Primarily we purchased them for feeding palm kernel, but have used them for silage and other supplements.
The locking system means the cows can have a scratch but not move them about. Easily moveable around paddocks and farm with a four-wheeler. You can place them quickly, and efficiently, where the least amount of damage will occur to the pasture.
We believe they have been a very worthwhile capital investment.

We chose the Normanby Fibreglass meal feeding troughs for the ease of towing with the four wheel motorbikes, to feed palm kernel to our cows.
The brake system on them is ideal, the cows can’t push the feeder anywhere, and it gets the draw bar up off the ground.
After using the meal feeders this season, we strongly recommend them.

I have a long narrow farm, walking our 260 cows 2.8 km to the back paddock! I needed to take the feed to the cows so that they stayed fit and healthy.
Normanby troughs are excellent as I have moved one ton (500 kgs per trailer) of palm kernel a day for six months the last two seasons, they have not let me down once!
Simple tough and reliable I couldn’t imagine a better trailer.

When the decision was made to feed palm kernel to our 450 cow herd in late spring, a feeding solution needed to be found reasonably quickly.
The things that were important to us was a trough that was easy for the cows to get access to, that was strong and durable and that was reasonably easy and maneuverable to tow. The trough also had to be safe both for the cows and staff.
When looking at the options there was one clear leader both in terms of what we were looking for and comparable price. That trough was the Normanby Fibreglass feed trough. We have two Normanby troughs and they have certainly met our expectations.
I would not hesitate to recommend this product to any one considering a feed trough.

Congratulations on the awesome design of the meal troughs. Have used them every day and can’t find fault with any part of them. An absolutely “no fuss” system. Great product – good service.

We bought a Normanby Troughmobile last spring to feed palm kernel to our cows. We were looking for a trough that would not give us any trouble, just do the job without any drama.
The Normanby Fibreglass trough impressed us with its rugged construction and no nonsense design. We were so impressed with the first one that we purchased another for our second farm.
We would highly recommend the Normanby Fibreglass troughs to anyone looking for a solid investment.

We purchased one 5m troughMOBILE in order to feed Palm Kernel Meal, it was so successful that we purchased another one for the same purpose.
The troughMOBILE is easy to tow by our 4 wheeler, the Gator or our Utes. Two trailers with 500kg’s of PKM in each trailer can easily be pulled, one behind the other by a four wheel motor-bike.
There is nothing better than these trailers to feed PKM.

Feeding supplements can add extra stress and extra time to an already busy day.
We have found the portable trough we purchased from Normanby Fibreglass to be easily transportable, strong and durable, with no wastage of the Palm Kernel.
We would have no hesitation in purchasing a second one should the need arise.
