We decided this winter we would feed ear corn to the cows for supplemental feed. To do that easily and in a timely manner, you need a corn feeder.
This spring, when we went to the Black Hills Stock Show, Vernon checked out a couple of feeders, and decided they’d be easy enough to make.
A few days ago, Vernon said if he ever said he thought he could build another piece of machinery, that I should make him lay down until the feeling passes. After a few years of building bale feeders and now this corn feeder, I guess he’s done manufacturing his own equipment.
The feeder is loaded in the pickup and ready to go… though it may have to wait until it’s put to use.
The top is open and the ears will be dumped into it with a scoop from a tractor.
I will get photos of it in use… maybe in a month or so.Find me here!
