Round Bale Cover Made From TV Satelite Dish
"I was having a problem with hay rotting before my goats could eat it. I needed something to cover them, but I didn't want to spend a lot of money," says Killough. "A tarp by itself wouldn't work because if I wrapped it so the wind couldn't blow it off, the goats couldn't eat. And if I left the tarp loose so they could eat, the wind would blow it off."
Killough used a jigsaw to cut off the dish's outside lip, then turned the dish upside down over the bale. Then he drove four T-posts into the ground at the dish's seams and used wire ties to tie the dish to the posts.
