I cut up wire hog panels and staple them to the top board above the feeder, which acts as a hinge. They're easy to open to drop in bales of hay. Grain can be poured right through the hog panels. I have converted all my feeders around the farm to the fenceline variety. Gives sheep plenty of room to eat without being crowded and I can get a good look at every animal every day when they line up to eat. They've also cut down on chore time and they help preserve my knees since I don't get charged by hun-gry animals anymore. They also make it easy for my wife to pitch in and help at chore time. The feeders cost less than $100 each to build. (Richard Krafka, Krafka Suffolks, Rt. 1, Box 74, Dysart, Iowa 52224ph 319 476-3760)
