    I finally got around to building my portable hay rack. It is about 7 foot long and 3 foot wide at widest point where a catch tray catches the hay. Hay loads from the top of the rack where the hay goes in. On skids for moving and mineral feeder on end. This is the best hay saver I have ever seen. Scrap tin roof keep hay dry. Cost of lumber about $125.00 When I move to new pasture for pasture rotation, I just hook it to my mule and pull it wherever I want. IMG_3220.jpg IMG_3224.jpg

    I have no pic yet but on the other end I added a colbalt block and a sulfur block. I notice as soon as I added them they are seen frequently on both ends eating minerals while several are eating hay. Also the waste hay now is less than 3%. I get this figure by looking at hay on the ground around it.

    That's fantastic!
    It's crazy to see how much hay goats really waste. It's like throwing money into your goat shed..and leaving it. Having a hay feeder with minimal waste is fantastic and it saves a LOT of money. (thumbup)

    You could probably build and sell them.
