Portable Mineral Feeder Pulls Behind Water Tank
The 4 by 6-ft. wooden feeder mounts on top of an old trailer axle and consists of a box built from treated 2 by 6’s and 2 by 12’s. The box is supported by a frame made out of 4-in. channel iron and holds 2 rows of mineral blocks, one on front and one on back, with 8 blocks per row weighing a total of 800 lbs. The roof was made from a 4 by 6-ft. rubber mat designed for horse stalls and livestock trailers.
“The 2 rows of blocks are separated by a 2 by 12 divider, which gives the rubber mat roof its peak,” says Stilson. “The center part of the mat is screwed down to the 2 by 12 divider, so cows can lift the mat up from both sides.”
