Motors and Their Use in Agriculture

When people consider the farming industry, motors are generally not the first thing that comes to mind. Although, if you work in the industry, that may not be the case. There is a ton of specialised equipment on any farm that relies quite heavily on a functioning motor; from irrigation systems and feeders, to milking machines and gates, their presence isn’t only necessary, but crucial.

If you have been thinking about setting up a farmstead, then you will need to factor what type of equipment you’ll be using into your decisions. Where motors are concerned, it is a good idea to know where they play a functional part of your setup, so that you can be prepared with the parts you need when setting up, maintaining, repairing or replacing any equipment you’ll need.

Fences and Pens

For large scale farming setups with a large stock of animals, it is often necessary to automate fences. This type of technology is achieved using motors that open and close gates remotely at the instruction of an operator. These motors may also need replacing or repairs after extensive use, requiring farmers to stock spares where necessary.

Winnowing Machines

Agriculture makes extensive use of winnowing machines which are used to separate chaff from grain. They are also used to rid stored grain of pests, as well as grain and seeds from husk and straw. These pieces of specialised equipment, in turn need a functional and appropriate motor to function.

Milking Machines

Milking machines are generally used in large dairy farming operations. They serve to automate the process of milking for large scale production. Since these machines are automated, it stands to reason that they too use motors that need regular maintenance, timely repairs and possibly also replacements.

Feed Grinders

Feed grinders are used in farming to process livestock feed from grain. Grinder mixers can be described as portable mills that both grind and mix grain to produce feed for animals. As you would imagine, the mechanical power required to do this is supplied by a motor to make the process more efficient.
