Project Profile: 12’ Diameter Brock Animal Feed System Installation

One of the reasons we work so hard to cultivate the very best partnerships in our industry is so that when a particularly unique or custom job crosses our path, we know that we have the best people and the best solutions to get the job done quickly and efficiently. In the case of this animal feed system, our partnership with Brock Grain Systems allowed us to work with our customer to design and construct the exact storage and handling system they needed.

Our customer had the rare problem of needing storage space for over twenty tons of rabbit pellets. On top of that, they also needed an easy to operate system that would be able to deliver those pellets for feeding. The FS Construction Services team rose to the challenge. After spending time with our customer to learn as much about the specifics of their goals for the perfect solution, we went to work evaluating the various available options. Within a few short days, our team of experts identified an excellent solution that met our customer’s specifications and budget.

The winning solution, a state-of-the-art Brock ALL-OUT Feed Bin System was concepted, designed, constructed and recently brought online. The system includes a twelve-foot diameter, sixty-degree hopper that holds ample feed for the customer’s needs. While the storage bin itself is located outside of the building, the feed auger, unique to this particular system, runs through the sidewall of the building for easy feeding, making both customer (and rabbits) very happy. “It was a simple solution but one that required us to think a little outside the box for this specific project,” commented Greg Birchler, Operations Manager, FS Construction Services.
