Features & Benefits

Screw design

Vermeer mixers are known for creating a thorough, consistent mix. This is made possible by the overlapping screw design that works directly with the small, offset baffles on the tub wall. Instead of feedstuffs remaining in one chamber of the twin screw, the screws and baffles work to move the feed between the screws in a clockwise motion.

Efficient cleanout

Rations are mixed to be fed, not to be left in the tub. Two bi-pulse legs work with the leading edge of the screw to form three points of contact with the tub floor for efficient cleanout, over mixers with only one or two points of contact.

Optional stainless steel liner

Help withstand a variety of feedstuffs and prevent rust with the optional stainless steel liner on the VT970 Premium.

Versatile axle options

With the VT970 Premium twin-screw vertical mixer, choose a single axle with dual tires or a tandem-spring axle with four large super-single tires for optimal performance in adverse ground conditions.

Upgraded durability

Premium mixers from Vermeer are for high-volume operators that need maximum durability. The VT970 Premium offers the same features of a VT970 but with thicker tub walls, floor and screw flighting.

4-point scale with Bluetooth connectivity

The Premium vertical mixers allow operators to view weight readouts from three different places: standard display, smart device via Bluetooth technology or from the additional remote display. The additional remote display helps provide visibility when loading feedstuffs.

Mixing it up

Mixing it up

Every operation is different and there are a lot of options out there on ways to feed your herd. While some people choose to feed in hay ring or bunk through free-choice feeding, many producers find value in using equipment such as vertical mixers, bale processors or feed wagons.

Profit margins are usually tight for cattle producers. They’re even tighter if you’re not maximizing your herd’s time at the bunk with maximum nutrition and minimal feed waste. A vertical feed mixer may be part of the feed cost equation for your operation.

Are your cows paying for themselves?

It takes 6 – 7 years for a breeding cow to pay for herself in any cow-calf operation, right? Not always. There are several components of the equation that show whether a cow is financially justifying her presence on your farm or ranch.
