I found these concrete feed bunks on line that would last for a long time. The company, (http://www.wieserconcrete.com/H_bunks.htm) is in Wisconsin, so getting anything from them is out of the question. Has anyone ever ordered a form or mold for a trough or bunk? I have looked at every site and I cannot find any information. It would be nice if they sold the bunks in West Tennessee. I wonder if such a form can be purchased? Has anyone ever tried this before? Or where can these concrete products be purchased?

Usually any of the companys that make concrete waterers/freeze proof also make concrete feed troughs. Check with your local NRCS office or feed store to see if there are local companys that manufacture them

Also in our area most concrete companys that pour forms, culverts,septic tanks and the like also pour feeders, usually cheaper that poly feeders.
Last forever and a half. Heavy, hard to move.
We have a three point "fork" made from 2x3x1/4" rectangle tube that we use to move them with.

For some reason, I thought that the concrete companies having forms for bunk feeders would be in the past. All of the ones I did see, were antiques at someone else's place. Most were watering troughs Thanks for the information. I'll give them a call tomorrow and see what they have!

The reason they look like antiques is because they last nearly forever.
