Sheep Feeding System – Stubbey Leas Farm, Derbyshire
During 2019, we were approached by Max, the farm manager of Stubbey Leas Farm, and asked to design and fabricate a bespoke system for the housing of 500 sheep within a newly completed barn. The system had to be semi-permanent, with the ability to disassemble the feeding system once lambing season had ended, thus not restricting the full use of the barn.
The first stage of this project was spent ironing out all the details. Our team had some solutions in mind, but everything had to work with the environment, animals, and the farm managers without issue. After a few meetings at our premises, and at the farm, we had specifications in place, and it was time for the design to commence.
Once the design was conceived, checked, modified, and signed off, fabrication could begin. All panels and gates were fabricated in-house and then hot-dipped galvanised to ensure durability and longevity. Finally, delivery was organised for December 2019 for installation.
At this point, being impressed with the solutions our team had provided, the farm managers decided to expand the project to include an adjacent barn. This also meant creating segregation fencing that allowed sheep to be transferred to and from either barn easily and quickly.
Installation of all sections was completed in February 2020, taking only 2 days in total, and the farm managers couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome.
Delivery & Installation Information

Livestock Ring Feeders
Ring feeders are portable feeding systems for livestock that allow multiple animals access to feed. Providing enough hay is deployed, animals can access feed 360 degrees around the feeder, improving the feed rate and reducing animal stress.
Two-piece feeders are delivered separately and bolted together when needed. Supplied in half sections, they can also be attached to a wall when necessary to save space.
Heavy duty ring feeders are usually for larger, heavier animals such as bulls and horses. Feeders for these types of animals are most commonly the tombstone type. Tombstone feeders are manufactured without a top rail, allowing taller animals and animals with horns access to feed.
Large cattle/livestock tombstone feeders are generally supplied in 3 pieces, due to the weight of the item.
Some ring feeders are also manufactured with a sheet metal ‘skirt’. This steel wall prevents feed from escaping the feeder, ensuring it doesn’t become contaminated or distributed outside the feeder.
