FAMILY AND FARMIN' IN THE HEARTLAND

  • HOW AND WHY WE BUILT THIS HAY FEEDER

    We get asked a lot about a hay feeder we built a few years ago. People drive by and see it, stop and look at it, measure it and want to know why we built it. We built it a couple of years ago based on an Eden Shale farm design. That’s the university of Kentucky’s experimental cattle farm. Here’s the link so you can see where our information came from. https://www.edenshalefarm.com/ . We had to change it a little bit because we have horned cattle but it is pretty much the same thing.  We love it because we never have to get in the field to load hay. Tractors don’t get muddy. We’re never disturbing the cows. It’s just a great system all around.
