We love raising sheep, but when it comes to feeders, the average cattle feeder won’t cut it. Today you will learn how to build an easy self-feeding hay feeder for sheep (or goats!).
We have tried a lot of feeders over the years… an IBC cage for small square bales, cut in half plastic barrels, an upside down cattle feeder, even a modified cattle hay feeder with welded wire (so they couldn’t fit in), but nothing met our criteria. Even though, I will say the IBC tote was perfect for the small square bales and would totally recommend it if you don’t work with large round bales.
By the way if you’re just getting started with sheep, read this first!
