Covered Round Bale Feeder"As far as we know there are no covered round bale feeders on the market. We've used this one for three years and it works great," says Rich Lange, Platteville, Wis.
"We built it for calves because they take so long to finish a bale but it'll work just as well for cows or sheep. The 7 by 7-ft. feeder has a treated floor and is built on two 4 by 6-ft. skids. It has a sloped, sheet metal roof and a swinging gate on one side to make it easy to load a bale.
"We're interested in building these feeders on a custom basis."
