Automatic Grain Roller Mills for Livestock

Automatic Manufacturing Co. has been leading the way in agricultural manufacturing for over 90 years. Evolving from the first producer of dependable and affordable cattle oilers in 1925 to a world-class manufacturer providing product solutions in the feeding of livestock, tractor accessories, and trailer towing equipment.

Grain processed for feed with an Automatic Roller Mill increases feed value up to 25%. Automatic mills break the seed coat, crimp the grain and reduce it to the desired particle size for greater, digestibility, increased palatability. With Automatic, you get a crumbled, fluffy feed that’s more appetizing to livestock with minimal flour or dust causing respiratory problems and waste feed. Differential roll drive provides self-cleaning action, producing greater volume with less horsepower.
