Re: Feeding hay in field
[ QUOTE ]
Sink 4 sturdy posts in the ground and attach planks to them. Ours are to about 18" high. Chop off poles so that they don't stick out.
It works for my lot. Fraction of the cost of a round feeder, in fact we did ours with lumber lying around the place.
The only disadvantage is that it would get churned up if it was wet, with the money you save you could always lay some gravel or something around there I guess.

We have a similar arangmenrt, only we have poles with tie rings attached dotted along the winter grazing and we alternate four haynets around the ten poles which are aranged in a line across the fence line about 4 metres in to the field....hope that makes sense.
