ATV Cattle Feeder

"I designed and built this two-wheeled portable cattle feeder to feed 8 to 10 feeder cattle. I pull it with an ATV," says Steven Garman, Scandia, Kan.
The 6-ft. long portable feeder has a 12-in. wide tub on each side for grain and a hay rack in the middle. The back side of each tub has a drain plug for easy clean-out. The tow hitch hinges up so it can be raised out of the way when unhooked. The front of the feeder rests on a pair of telescoping legs that lift out of the way for transport.
"It cost almost nothing to build," says Garman, who built the feeder entirely from scrap parts. "I cut a hot water heater in half to make the feed troughs and salvaged the rear axle and tires off an old riding mower. I used 3-in. sq. steel tubing to make the hitch and 3- and 4-in. pipes to make the telescoping legs."
Garman is looking for a manufacturer.
