Hey folks. Here’s a quick pic of my home-made round bale feeder that I made for the 2009 fall/winter goat/sheep pen. It works pretty good – so far. It’s so light weight that I take it out of the pen and place it around the bale before bringing the bale into the pen. I’m not real sure if I could easily get the feeder in place if the goats got unruly. This way I don’t have to worry about it. Here the bale & feeder is setting on the bale fork, waiting to be brought to the goats & sheep. Look closely… you can see where I made openings for the animals to stick their heads through – one up high and one a bit lower. Click on the feeder openings so see a close-up.
