Farmers Like This Hay Saver Feeder
B. Cottingim, Somerville, Ohio: “I keep very good records on my hay feeding each year and for the group of 22 cows I have in the lot where I placed the Klene Hay Saver feeder, I saw a measurable and immediate improvement in the hay conversion (www.klenepipe.com; ph 812 614-4364). Using my old round bale feeder, I was feeding one 1,600-lb. round bale a day. For the two weeks after installing the Hay Saver, I fed 11 bales in 14 days. That’s more than a 20 percent savings. There’s no waste around this feeder. It’s going to change how often I have to haul manure from the cement pad. With my old feeder there was always a large amount of ‘hay mat’ that circled the feeder. With the Hay Saver I have virtually clean cement around the feeder, even after several weeks of using it. The Hay Saver is a great product.”
    Teamdonk, Grangeville, Idaho: “The Klene Hay Saver arrived as promised and one man set it up over parts of 4 days. We put a big bale in the feeder and overnight received 3 in. of snow with strong winds. The Klene feeder was free of snow while what was left of a bale in our old round feeder was packed with snow and ice. As the animals eat from the Hay Saver the grills follow the hay down and eliminate waste. The sides can even be moved back to block animals from overeating. The Hay Saver is a great design built with quality materials. The hay stays off the ground and with the larger roof, it provides summer shade too.”
