Need hay feeder to creep feed calves

Post by rjbovine » Thu Nov 08, 2018 6:21 pm

Any recommendation on a good feeder to use ? Wanting to feed 4 x 5 bales of OG hay. The feeders I use for the cows the calves get inside ruin a lot of hay . Thought I would try a cradle type . Has any one tried these type of feeders ? thank you rj

Take a look at the variety of hay feeders that Sioux Steel manufacturers... they have multiple styles of Hay/Grain feeders that are well built and hold up well. Can be a little pricey, but like all things you get what you pay for.
