Hay Feeder Grows With Your Herd
Each module measures 12 ft. long and holds two 5 or 6-ft. round bales or three 4-ft. bales. Bales are loaded with a loader tractor or skid loader onto a central rail that’s elevated off the ground to keep hay dry.
Each feeder section has 12 feed openings and a tapered top that’s designed to keep hay in the feeder.
“Loading bales is like pushing donuts down a chute,” says Hess. “You simply slide the bales into the feeder as far as you can and then repeat the process. You can load all the hay from one end. Also, there’s far less waste than with a conventional hay ring.”
A single feeder section sells for $1,200 plus S&H. An optional front swing gate and optional endgate sell for $350 each plus S&H. A creep feeder is also available for $350 plus S&H.
