Poor farmer’s round bale feeder

Aaron and Polly

Instead of buying a $300 round bale feeder, I’m going to try using a cattle panel wrapped around it. We’ll see. We cut it down a little, and Aaron and Frank used a Dremel to smooth out the rough bits.

We did the same thing for the sheep, except instead of eating out of the top, they will theoretically eat through the cattle panel openings. As they eat it, I’ll tighten it around them. We covered the top with a tarp.

I hope these work. I need to find ways to save time during the day. It’s taking far longer for the loggers to clear the new pastures than I’d hope.
