Calf Feeder Built From Old Hammermill
Weld five 5-ft. long, 3-in. dia. pipes around the hammermill to serve as legs. A metal octagon-shaped feed trough is then welded to the inside of the legs 6 in. be-low the hole in the bottom of the hammermill. That way the trough remains full at all times, automatically filling as the calves clean it out.
It eliminates the inconvenience of manually filling wooden feed troughs hung on fences. Plus, five to 10 more calves can eat at one time, so it eliminates bumping and pushing.
