Hay feeder for horned cattle

Post by DCA farm » Wed Nov 06, 2019 8:00 pm

Looking for a hay feeder idea for horned cows
Longhorn/corriente type cows. Not wanting to just set the rolls out on ground but my ring feeders I believe cows will get stuck in or not be able to get into at all.

These are the type of ring feeders I have now for my beef cattle but I’m fixing to start raising roping cattle as well

I would think a horse hay feeder will work. No top bar to catch on.
Stand to the left or the right. Never on the fence.

The horse hay feeders are the best for cattle with bigger horns. Like was stated above. They have an upside down shaped u to divide it in "eating spots" , with no top bar. Helps to keep them from dragging out all the hay, but they won't get their heads stuck.

I quite like the kind made with surgical wire and two handles!😊
Vaccinations, cheaper than whiskey. ;-)
