Consider Riverdown Steel Hay feeders to save on your feed costs
The greatest amount of hay loss occurs when animals are given free access to hay. They will trample, over consume, and contaminate between twenty-five to forty-five percent of the hay. Limiting animal access to hay will help limit waste.
With cattle hay feeders, while some losses will always occur, keeping losses to a minimum can reduce feed costs, resulting in more efficient use of forages and, alongside a robust cattle handling equipment, increasing the profitability of the cow herd enterprise. To help reduce feed losses is to place a new bale in your cattle hay feeders when only 10% of the bale is left. This will force the cows to eat a majority of the bale as well as make sure there is adequate room for the new bale. The correct design for your specific farming operation can save you money in the long run and reduce your feed costs.
