Chickmate Plant Tour • May 17 • Buchanan (Morning Tour)
Chickmate feeders came from an idea by a progressive thinking farmer, Pat Awalt, who noticed a crack in the feed line and saw feed dropping onto the floor. He developed a more efficient method of feeding baby chickens and invented a baby chick feed dispenser that "automatically" feeds the young birds. Manufactured from high-quality plastics, Chickmate manufacturers 7 models of feed dispensers and 3 feed pan models for commercial chicken houses and are distributed worldwide. Attendees will see the complete process of injection molding from raw material to finished product.
