Reasons to invest in a SmartBunker ®

Feeding horses is done more safely from their own feed storage unit, so why not use a SmartBunker ®
The award-winning SmartBunker ® is a versatile plastic multi-purpose storage bunker that works well for small, regular shaped coal, slack, wood pellets and grit sale. The SmartBunker ® is also practical for a range of animal feeds, including horse feeds. The bunker has a unique dispensing system with an easy to use pull arm which distributes the necessary amount of product with little force necessary.
SmartBunker ® can help to lessen part of the risk of equine influenza - it cuts out unnecessary contact between vulnerable and transmitting animals, which is a win, win scenario for everyone involved.
The virus is predominantly spread via infected body fluids and secretions (nasal discharge, coughing and foetal fluids). However, it can be spread by contact with infected material. This second infection path is where the SmartBunker ® could be particularly beneficial.
Realistically, SmartBunkers can also help to reduce the risk of any further equine influenza outbreaks ever occurring again.
I would highlight the capability to keep each horse's feed and feed bucket separate, this reducing the chance of cross contamination. It should also reduce labour costs for staff as the feed will be sited outside the horse's stable and close at hand, assuming you purchase multiple SmartBunkers.
Keeping feed safe and reducing the risk of spreading infection is the principle goal of SmartBunker ®.
