Salt And Mineral Feeder/Duster
A few of my neighbors have complained about one problem, however. When cattle stick their heads up underneath the skirt to lick salt, the feeders can be easily tipped over.
To solve the problem, I simply weld a 25 to 26-ft. length of 1-in. dia. shop-rolled pipe onto the legs all the way around the bottom. This way cattle cannot turn them over because the ring hits them in the belly.
I do the modification for $80 plus the cost of the pipe. Works like a charm. (Don Moss, R.R.1, Box 27, Tallula, Ill. 62688; ph 217 634-4158)
