Hay Saving Bale Feeder
This hay saving bale feeder is designed for 2 round bales up to 5 foot round or one large square bale up to 4′ X 4′ X 8′, and features an oversized roof and drain holes to protect the hay. Studies have shown that wet hay can produce dangerous mold within 3 days if not consumed, and hay does not dry out quickly. The roof of this horse bale feeder protects the hay from getting soaked during rain or a snowstorm, and if any water does make it into the trough it will vanish quickly through drain holes in all four corners. In driving storms the sides may experience some moisture, but the side of the bales are generally consumed first, reducing the chances of mold.
The Model 610H features a user-friendly side-load design that eliminates the tedious chore of pushing a hay bale in from the back. It can easily be combined with a hay net to reduce hay consumption, giving your horses a more balanced “slow feed” experience. The half hoop or tombstone design keeps hay in the trough when the horses are eating from the bale, cutting down on needless waste and saving you money. Keeping hay off the ground is also important for your horse’s health.
A Safe & Spacious Horse Bale Feeder
This spacious hay bale feeder can comfortably feed 10-14 horses while ensuring that each horse has equal and safe access to hay, thanks to upright bars on all sides and ends. These bars keep the horses in place while eating; acting as a check on more dominant horses that could potentially push out other horses. The bars are a huge improvement over feeders with open sides which is just another reason why a hay saving bale feeder from Farmco is an ideal solution for your farm.
The Model 610H also keeps your horses safe with the Horse-Proof latch. The secure gate lock on our hay bale feeder ensures your horses will be safe and make the feeding process easier on yourself.
