Temporary windbreak for cattle
"If you're going to have wagons sitting around outside anyway, you might as well put them to work," says Clyde Gumbert, Mondovi, Wis., who uses chopper boxes and hay racks as a temporary windbreak for cattle.
"I got the idea a few years ago when we started feeding big round bales out in our cattle yard. Cattle had to go out in sub-zero weather to feed, but strong winds would discourage them from eating. These wagons give almost perfect shelter. I added chipboard sheets along the bottom of the wagons to provide even better shelter. Now when the cattle feed behind the wagons, they're almost completely out of the wind," says Gumbert.
