New offering allows small operators to produce their own high-quality feed

NEW HOLLAND, PA, March 07, 2024 /24-7PressRelease/ — Turning grains into feed is now easier than ever for hobby farmers and homesteaders, thanks to the new Horning RM1808e Roller Mill. This compact but rugged mill packs professional-grade milling power into a user-friendly package. It’s designed for anyone ready to take the first step in producing their own feed.

Many people are concerned by the prevalence of bio-engineered crops and crops grown with chemicals. Horning Manufacturing, an established producer of agricultural equipment, recognizes that one of the best ways for livestock and poultry owners to control what their animals eat is to process their feed from crops they have grown themselves.

“With the 1808e, we’ve created an ‘entry-level’ roller mill that’s built very similar to our larger models,” said Leon Horning. “It’s perfect for folks who want to grind their own grains into livestock feed but don’t need an industrial-scale mill.”

The mill is compact, measuring about 2’x3′ and standing less than 4′ tall. Despite its size, the 1808e can grind up to 70 pounds of dry corn a minute. This is due to its powerful motor and hardened steel rolls that come in a range of groove configurations. The rolls are easily adjustable for finer or coarser grinds. Key features include spring-loaded rolls to handle debris, a simple belt drive, and a magnetic switch for safety.

“The 110v motor makes this mill so easy – just plug it in, pour your grains in the hopper, and watch the freshly milled feed come out the other end,” Horning said. “Your livestock and poultry get the great taste and nutrition of feed made from your own grains. Plus, the satisfaction of being more self-sufficient on your farm.”

Horning makes two other stationary mills, both with higher capacities. But they see the 1808e as perfect for off-grid living or for anyone who wants the cost savings and animal health benefits that come from making their own feed.
