Solution To Barrel Feeder Problem
Lots of small farms use half barrels to hold feed for animals. I was always having to go inside the fence to drag or flip over the barrel feeders. A simple solution was to drill a 3/8-in. hole in one corner of the half barrel, tie a knot in a 6-ft. piece of rope and pull the rope through the hole, tying the other end to a fencepost. When itís feeding time the half barrels are just about always upright and, if not, you can pull them over to the fence without going into the pen with the animals. Even the kids are safe at feeding time. (Steve Turner, Walhalla, S.C.)
