If so, I need to make about 20 and sell them for a little over whatever the lumber costs.. just to get rid of the old tires I have here..It's gonna cost me $7 each to get rid of them not counting what it costs in gas to haul them to the tire grinder place..


We have an amnesty day here once a year, when you can just drop them off. I figured everybody did.

I copied Jed's troughs, I like them as well as anything I've ever used. Also, 3 barrels bolted together, with a bag and a half of concrete in each is a pretty nice mineral station. Cheap enough, I'd rather make some more, than keep moving mine from field to field.



Can you post a picture of the trough and the mineral feeder?



Unfortunately, I have lost the ability to post a picture. Need to get my wife to sit down, and study over it, and get me back going.

I may be able to find a pic on the web, and post a link.

This guy complicated this beyond belief. You just lay them endto end, and bolt them together with 2 half inch diameter bolts. Think mine are an inch and a half long. Turn a barrel crossways on each end. Keeps them from flipping over. I like 4 in the middle, with one on each end. You can hoof several together, I pull 100' around with an atv quit often. Have been pulling them to the bin lately, and pulling them back to calves full. Cuts down on a lot of handeling buckets.

Can't find a mineral feeder pick like mine.

Yep, over thought that one.
I can't post pics here anymore either or I would.
