Wind Controlled Mineral Feeder
The feeder features two large round plates that catch the wind, shifting the feeder's re-
volving hood with the wind so the "back" is always against the wind, protecting the salt or minerals from the elements.
The feeder sits on two poles anchored 3 1/2 ft. into the ground so cattle can't tip it over while the hood pivots on an old car hub. The tub, made from an old kettle, holds 400 lbs. of mineral and can be set at different heights.
Brousseau sells blueprints for the feeder for $10.
