Cotton Trailer Bale Feeders
We store round bales in two hay barns that are 10 miles apart. We feed from our five feeders that we built out of cotton trailers. The local cotton companies have gone to modules so the trailers are available cheap. The axles are 16 ft. apart with 24-ft. long beds that are 2 ft. deep and 4 ft. wide at bottom. They're 7 ft. wide at the top.
  We have a 530 Deere round baler. Four of the bales fit into the trailer. All the trailers have 16-in. pickup wheels. Very cheap to put together and we can fill them and then pull them behind our pickup. (E.F. Carson, 21 W. Lone Oak Rd., Valley View, Tex. 76272)
