Gareth Evans and son Tom work on their Mid-Wales livestock farm, rearing 1250 ewes, 50 commercial beef cows and 15 pedigree limousine cows. They also have a stock of 60,000 laying hens to look after on their 550 acre site.

With only Gareth, Tom and one other farm labourer, time is a major factor in livestock care and farm upkeep. Their Teagle Tomohawk 8100 saves them a lot of time in comparison with doing the same feeding and bedding by hand, especially in the winter months when the time saving could be an hour a day.

The farm has a long-standing relationship with RVW Pugh, with previous purchases being tractors, telehandler and previous feeder bedders.

The originally decided to buy a feeder bedder in 2001 during the foot and mouth outbreak when they moved round bales and passage feeding. This is the third Teagle they have bought. The machine can handle straw bedding, along with silage and bales. The side chute comes in very handy due to the way their sheds are designed, so a top chute would not work.

Gareth added that, “the Teagle Tomohawk 8100 is multifunctional with the bedding and being able to reverse into silage if needed. You also get more out of bale of straw because it is spread evenly and there are no clumps.
