Openline self-locking feed front

As the word Openline suggests, these are feed fronts with an open top; the head goes in from the top. These are the Swedish feed fronts that have been known for many years. Ideal for animals with horns.

All Openline feed fronts are self-locking with central controls and have an enlarged movable bar to prevent collars from being caught.

Based on the demand for a more robust and larger version, Spinder developed this type of fence into the heavy Rubos version with a built-in safety function and silencer. The feed opening width is 70 cm to suit the larger cows.

The operating modes of the feed front:

  • open position, the animals can freely move their heads in and out of the feed front
  • self-locking position where the animals lock themselves in when they start eating
  • centrally releasing all positions
  • individually releasing an animal by sliding up a drop pin into the tilting bar
  • for Rubos only: individually releasing an animal from the safety opening (bottom opening) by sliding up a drop pin into the tilting barĀ 

  • robust construction
  • suitable for horned cows
  • spacious safety opening
  • multiple operations
  • low passage for the dairy farmer
