Hay Feeders – Texas drought makes hay feeders ever so important

 

The extreme Texas drought has made hay feeders even more important than ever.  Given the extreme conditions and the lack of natural hay and even the lack of hay from neighboring states available to be trucked in, it has become a necessity to have hay feeders that eliminate any kind of waste.

 

Barn World has a large selection of hay feeders that minimize waste and maximize the amount of hay that gets to your herd.  Please view our large hay feeder selection online to minimize the cost of feed and help eliminate any possibility of  selling out any livestock.

 

We have a great selection of combo hay feeders, standard bale feeders, portable hay feeders and stall feeders.  In fact, visit BarnWorld for all of your livestock equipment and livestock supply needs.

 

Below is a succinct  article from Progressive Cattleman detailing the severity of the drought Texas is dealing with.  We hope that it ends soon and the herds get back to normal quickly.

 

 

Texas crop, weather: It’s a ‘no-brainer;’ sell out herds now PDF Print E-mail

COLEGE STATION – With little to no grazing and hay, should livestock producers continue to try to buy feed, move cattle to another state or just sell out?

 

“It would be much less expensive to just get out and come back later,” said Dr. Larry Redmon, Texas AgriLife Extension Service state forage specialist. “And that’s the message that we’re trying to convey.”

Many livestock producers have already tried to cut feeding costs by extensively culling their herds, but have held onto enough cows to rebuild their herds if the drought passes, he said.

In some dry years, that might be a good strategy, but not this one, Redmon said.

“It’s unprecedented,” he said. “(We’ve had) the 12 driest months in Texas history, and there’s just not many ways to combat that.”

With grazing and hay supplies next to non-existent in many areas of the state, it’s getting very expensive to buy feed. On average, it’s costing producers “somewhere around a $100 a month to have these animals (cows) stay in the pasture and feed them,” he said.

Another choice is to move cattle elsewhere, most likely another state during this drought, and lease land where there is grazing, Redmon said.

“It could be western Mississippi; it could be eastern Louisiana; or it could be maybe Missouri,” he said. ‘I haven’t talked to anybody this year, but in the past couple of years people have called me from other states and they’ve quoted prices of $20 to $22 per (cow/calf) pair per month. Even assuming that’s $25 or $30 that’s still a far, far cry from $100 a month.”

Of course, one has to add the cost of hauling a trailer load of cattle to the leased grazing, but even with that added cost it still cheaper than trying to buy hay and feed at today’s prices, he said.

“It’s probably going to be $3 to $3.50 a loaded mile –something like that,” he said. “If you just put all that together … the savings could still be tremendous if a person could find a place to put those animals.”

But completely selling out makes more sense yet, Redmon said, given there’s no guarantee this drought will end anytime soon.

“Some people would counter and say it’ll cost more to come back into the business later because conditions will have improved, and more people will be getting back in,” he said. “That’s true. But again, looking at the difference in what it would cost to buy cows and come back in at some later date — versus what they would spend trying to go through this drought — mathematically, it’s just a no-brainer.”

More information on the current Texas drought and wildfire alerts can be found on the AgriLife Extension Agricultural Drought Task Force website athttp://agrilife.tamu.edu/drought/.

AgriLife Extension district reporters compiled the following summaries:

Central: Northern parts of the district received from 2 to 5 inches of rain, but conditions remained largely unchanged. Sale barns were full each Saturday. Cattle were getting thin. All livestock producers were heavily feeding. Hay and water was in short supply. Farmers continued to harvest crops worth harvesting. Many crops were being zeroed-out for insurance purposes.

Coastal Bend: Though light showers were reported in some areas, extreme drought conditions persisted. The cotton harvest was ongoing. Livestock producers continued to sell off herds due to lack of forage. Most watering ponds were dry. Some water wells were also going dry, and some producers were drilling new ones. Many trees were dying or showing signs of drought stress.

East: No rain was received, and the drought worsened. Water levels in stock ponds and creeks were dangerously low. Many trees were dying or going dormant early. Hay was no longer being harvested. Producers were searching for hay to buy. Out-of-state purchases were becoming more common. Ranchers continued culling and selling off herds. Livestock began to show signs of obvious weight-loss.

North: Soil moisture was very short over most of the area. Daytime highs of 100-plus degrees and nighttime lows in the mid-80s continued to be the norm. A few areas received some rain, which might improve pastures if they are not overgrazed and given time to regrow. Without rain, most pastures continued to go downhill. The corn and grain sorghum harvests were nearly complete with yields reported to be slightly above average. Soybeans – those that survived the drought — were also being harvested. Some soybeans were cut for hay and the rest were being plowed under. Corn and milo stalks were being harvested as hay and shipped all over the state. Where there was hay, it was being sold before it was cut. Once baled, hay was being loaded on trucks and shipped out before the baler got cold. Most livestock producers were feeding hay and supplements to cattle. With heavy supplemental feeding and short hay supplies, producers continued to cull their herds and were scrambling to find hay for immediate feeding and for winter. Some livestock producers were selling out. Water was becoming a major concern as ponds were getting very low. Hay producers hoped for late August or September rains so they could possibly produce one more cutting. Trees were dying from the record heat and lack of rain for over 60 days in most areas. Rangeland and pasture conditions were very poor.

Panhandle: Most of the region received scattered showers and cooler weather. Accumulations ranged from a trace to 1.5 inches. The rain and cooler weather was welcomed, but it was not enough moisture to help the very thirsty crops. Soil moisture levels remained very short. Irrigators were watering full swing trying to keep up with water demands. Gray County received hail along with the rain, which stripped the leaves off some cotton and corn. Also, high winds toppled six pivots in that county. The rain greened up some pastures, but more was needed to really make a difference in the very poor conditions. However, the cooler weather did ease water needs and heat stress on cattle. Supplemental feeding of livestock continued. Producers who were trying to hang on to their cattle were buying hay form other states, with hauling costs running $20-$30 per ton.

Rolling Plains: Rain! But the amount varied greatly from county to county. Throckmorton County received from 0.5 inch to 3 inches of rain, while Stephens County received from 0.5 inch to 5 inches. Haskell County received as much as 2.8 inches. Other counties received from 0.1 to 0.8 inch. However, the majority of counties did not receive any measurable moisture. The rain was no help for cotton producers, though it did help wheat growers who would like to plant in September. More moderate temperatures, especially nighttime lows, helped relieve stress on livestock. Cotton was fruiting, but even under heavy watering, fields still looked weak. Producers were weaning and selling calves. Some producers are selling or shipping their cows to out-of-state grazing. Hay was scarce and expensive when available. A few hay producers hoped to have a late-summer cutting. Large trees were beginning to show the effects of too little moisture.

South: Record-high temperatures continued. In Webb County, temperatures of 104 and higher were reported. Some daytime highs reached 108 or even 110 degrees. Rangeland and pastures further declined, forage supplies and stock-tank water levels dropped. Many livestock water tanks had already completely dried out. In Live Oak County, there were record numbers of livestock sales at sale barns. The heaviest livestock culling was taking place in Webb and Zavala counties, where ranchers have completely run out of water resources. Also, feed sources in those counties were very scarce. The western portion of Frio County received 0.5 to 1 inch of rain. Also in that Frio County, the corn harvest was completed, the cotton harvest began and the sorghum harvest was ongoing. Most crops in Jim Wells County were harvested, and fields were ready for fall and winter preparations. In Zavala County, farmers were preparing land for cabbage and spinach planting, and pecan producers were irrigating orchards in the critical kernel-development stage. In Hidalgo County, the cotton harvesting was winding down. In Starr County, farmers were planting sugarcane and fall vegetables. In Willacy County, harvesting of late-planted cotton continued.

South Plains: Some areas received as much as 3 inches of rain. Others got none. The remaining cotton is from two weeks to a month ahead of schedule; and the final stages of flowering or in cut-out. In other areas, cotton was shedding bolls and squares from lack of water. Of the 42,000 cotton acres planted in Garza County, only 8,000 remained. Many producers were planning on an early harvest. High temperatures dropped into the 90s. Most counties were still under burn bans. Some growers chose to dig and harvest peanut vines for hay due to the low pegging rate. White grapes in Yoakum County were harvested, and red grapes were expected to be ready by the end of August. Cattle producers were selling off herds because of shortages of grass, hay and water.

Southeast: The extreme drought did not budge. The month of July closed with a nearly 22-inch rainfall deficit for the year in some parts of the region. Some areas had scattered showers. Grain sorghum and rice fields were being baled and sold for livestock forage. Early July had brought some light rains that allowed for re-growth of grain sorghum. But tests showed very high prussic acid levels. People feeding this forage to livestock were cautioned to test all sorghum grass species before grazing or feeding as hay. Pond levels continued to drop. The condition of cattle continued to decline with the as pastures worsened. Cattle sales were up. Some infestation of red rice was reported in the rice crop.

Southwest: Sporadic showers brought 1 inch to 2 inches of rain to some areas, but most of the region remained completely dry. High afternoon winds created dust storms. Record high or near-record high temperatures of over 100 degrees aggravated the drought. The region remains in wildfire-alert status. Many stock tanks were dry. Forage availability remained well below average for this time of the year. The cotton, watermelon and cantaloupe harvests were all ongoing. Some farmers planted sweet corn for an early fall harvest. Peanuts, pecans and landscape nursery crops continued to make good progress wherever irrigation water was still available. Ranchers were providing supplemental feed for livestock.

West Central: Extremely hot, dry conditions continued. Wildfire dangers remained very high. Some areas reported scattered showers, but not enough moisture was received to make a difference. The heat has destroyed almost everything planted, including gardens. Rangeland and pastures were in poor condition. Trees in pastures were dying at an alarming rate. Stock-water tanks were very low or completely dry. Ranchers were hauling water to most livestock. Hay supplies were very limited. Producers continued to cull livestock herds. More and more livestock producers are selling out.

A spark from the baler ignited hay inside, and the resulting fire spread to more than 100 acres. No houses burned, but the operator lost both machines plus his pickup truck, which was parked nearby, according to witnesses.

  • Horse Feeders

    The possible reason that there are available lots of f horse feeders for foodstuff (hay) is that they all strive to resolve some common problems; animal wounding, major clean ups around feeders, spoilage and being waste.

    Waste of foodstuff from horse feeders surely has to be considered as foremost concern from the cost viewpoint. Nobody is fond of spending for quality foodstuff and most people always try to find all the waste made by the horse themselves or by the weather.  Nobody gives much time, giving the right quantity of foodstuff to eat for the horses who are starving for to remove waste.

    Wastage from the horses themselves is sting due to the nature and quantity of the wastage in that it gets trodden and that has to be cleaned-up again and again in region of horse feeders.

    In so far as wounding runs from feeders, it is very aching and traumatic to witness a horse trapped in a feeder and one definitely wants to omit that possibility.

    Horse feeders must be simple to handle, light-weighted and preservation free, almost durable and should add to a healthier societal behavior of the horses in the area of the feeder.

    Keeping all the above stated points into consideration; there are different types of Horse feeders available: –

    Hay Hopper Round Bale Feeder

    A hay hopper round bale feeder aids one to save money by eradicating waste made by horses themselves.  If one is at present making use of a round feeder then he might be dropping 10% of his hay.  If the cost of hay is $100 / ton and one feeds 2,000Ibs each day one might be dropping $300 each month or $10 each day and upto $3,600 each year in just hay.  The cost of this horse feeder will be just about $150 – $250 each to send to the neighboring 48 states.

    Closed Bottom Hay Feeder

    It comes in the size of 1 5/8” x 16 gauge and with closed bottom.  There is a steel shield which is joined to frame and able to hold loose silage and hay.  It has slant bars, 15 feed openings and prairie gold powder finish coat.

    Double Slant Feeder

    It is 8’dm at the bottom, which tapers to 6’7” at the top and aids to less silage waste.  This exclusive design lets bale be held straight while it is fed.  It has 48” height and available with 210lbs weight, and 2’ frame, 1 5/8” slant bars as well.

    Feed Bunks

    A feed bunk is a strong steel frame and has electro animated metal hopper which is placed for hard use.  It converts to horse feeder within few minutes with elective hay rack.  The dimensions of the feed bunks are 10’x2’x26’ and it also allows eliminating waste.

    Hay Max 8’ Round Closed Bottom Hay Feeder

    It helps omitting waste as it comes in clogged bottom silage feeder with the Cone feeder slot in.

    Hay Cradle and Hay Max Square Feeder

    Hay Max would operate with greatest use of value baled hay in square or round.  This unique design even offers for feeding evenly. The Bale is usually suspended in the cone to omit ground contact.  It is reliable, sturdy and solid construction that offers longevity of use and comes in 7’-7” square.

    Heavy duty skirted Round Bale Feeder

    It is 1 ½ 14ga square tubing rings and 48” tall, and red oxide primer finish as well.

    Horse Combo

    It comes in various sizes such as 4’x6’ horse combination, 6’x6’ horse combination and 8’x6’ horse combination.  It is 6’ tall and 45” wide and 16ga double V steel trench as well as 1” 16ga round tubing hay frame.

    Horse Hay Feeder

    A horse hay feeder has close bottom and has 8’ diameter feeds for any type of hay which comes in loose or baled that fits most of the bale sizes small or large, square or round.  The corners of horse hay feeder are 9”x20” rounded and all downy frames shelter horses’ manes and necks.

    Horse Round Bale Feeder

    Horse Round Bale Feeder is a 1” 16ga2 tubing rings and 1” 16ga round tubing scaffolds. It has green enamel finish.

    Similarly there are many other horse feeders such as O’Neill Bale Feeder, Open Bottom Hay Feeder, Optional Hay Rack and many more available that enable to eliminate waste.

    All the horse feeders which are available in the marketplace, many of them are of quite good quality but are not able to solve all the problems related to hay feeding.  Many of them are not weather confined, nor put off spoilage and waste.  However, few of them are very heavy duty and can not be moved easily. Some need oxidation and preservation otherwise they get to be hazardous.

    As all horse feeders tend to resolve the same troubles and all do not fairly achieve something, there is a requirement for a entirely new idea, a new vision for horse feeders.

    Hay Feeders

    The major trouble with feeding hay outer surface to animals is that they love to throw hay around their feeder areas, make the use of hay as bedclothes and ruin it and as one becomes familiar with certainly it is a big misuse of hay particularly if one pays for quality hay.  Besides this, to make things worse, all that wasted, compacted and spoiled hay has to be cleared-up in the region of feeder or around feeder area as well as, waste and spoilage from all climatic circumstances has to be used in making hay feeders for animals.

    For sure an answer to this trouble would be to give to eat only the quantity of hay that one’s animals are starving for at the time of having silage.  Thus, they would have it all and would not spoil or waste any and it also involves a person to be around when required, good climate or not.  Because most of the people wish to have leisure time to a great extent there is a requirement for unique feeding techniques where the silage could reside in the hay feeder when there is no requirement and would be kept secluded from snow, sun and rain. In this manner one can go from feeding a small number of times a day to a small number of times a month. So there are some hay feeders available that allow one to feed animals devoid of any waste of hay or silage:

    Big Animal Hay Feeder

    It is made for handling huge animals like dairy cows and bulls and enables to feed with comfort under top rung.
    It has 8 ½ ft, stat bar and openings of 15 feed.  It is manufactured from 2”16 gaugex50, 000 psi tubing.

    It can be converted to the hay feeder within few minutes with possible Hay Rack.
    The dimensions of Feed Bunks is 10’x2’x26’ and 12’x3’x26’ respectively.

    Hay Max Square Feeder (Bottom) Frame Only

    Hay Max would maximize the usage of quality hay – square or round.
    This unique make offers for even hay feeding.
    Bale is hanged up in cone in order to omit ground contact.
    It is sturdy, reliable and solid construction offers long durability of use.
    It is plain gold powder coat end.

    Heavy Duty skirted Round Bale Feeder

    It is built to endure the bull’s abuse.

    It has Red oxide primer finish.

    Heavy Duty Skirted Round Hay Feeder

    It is also built to endure the bull’s abuse.

    Open Bottom Hay Feeder

    It is light-weighted, sturdy and outlasts steel and limits the hay waste.
    It has plain gold powder coat finish.

    Besides these, there are some other hay feeders available like O’Neill Bale Feeder, Horse and Cattle Feeder, Horse Round Bale Feeder, Horse Hay Feeder and many more.

    An effectual hay feeder shall reduce the costs for people who pay for hay; it will surely reduce the effort for those people who cultivate their own silage.  Most of the hay users guess that a smaller amount of 30 percent and upto 40 percent of hay could be spoiled both by the weather conditions and horses.

    Other problems like cutting of animals caused by the hay feeders and a nice societal conduct at the hay feeder must also be kept into contemplation.

    Luckily, the existing hay feeders keep the silage in the feeder secluded from the climate conditions.  It is entirely secure as far as hazard of cutting in animals is concerned and it significantly improves societal behavior in the region of hay feeder. On the whole, these hay feeders would save an extensive amount of effort, time, money and hay.
