Galvanized Bale Feeders!!

Barn World now offers Galvanized Round Bale Feeders

We are constantly looking for products that are of high quality, extremely tough and that stand up to abuse from all types of animals.  One of those that also offers extreme protection from a common problem, rust, is part of the Tarter brand.  With it’s unique design and extreme protection, the Galvanized Cradle Round Bale Feeder is going to be doing double-duty for a long time on your farm and ranch!

  

The Cradle Round Bale Feeder

Unique design: bALE FeeDER for BOTH horses and cattle

The unique cradle design makes the hay bale feeder very versatile as you can feed both horses and livestock from the same feeder.  You don’t need separate feeders for your cattle and equine, they can both use this feeder easily. Traditionally, you would want a closed top feeder for livestock and an open feeder for horses, but because the hay is elevated above the ground, you won’t need the barrier to keep your cattle out and your horses still have easy access.

Easy to load bale feeder

To make loading easy, one side has a completely removable end, or entry door for your bale.  Simply slide out the end piece that locks into place and the entire side of the feeder is open for easy loading.  See the video below for a quick overview.  With this unique system, the bale can be driven directly into the side of the feeder and safely set into place. No need to drop the bale in at an angle, or risk the feeder falling over or being bent when the bale falls in.  The removable panel makes the loading process simple and easy.  It really is the cleanest of the loading procedures out there.

Advantages of a Galvanized Hay Feeder

Although extremely rugged and designed for use outdoors with livestock, when galvanized, the protection level from the elements is taken a step further.  It offers the best defense possible from rust even when left in the harshest of conditions.  It’s always best to keep your feeders out of the mud and water, even when galvanized, but with that special finish, it’s as protected as you can get from water and rust so it won’t suffer the quick fate of rusting out that ruin so many traditional steel feeders.  To go the extra mile, there is even a clear coat applied as a final finish over the entire feeder!   There’s really nothing else you could do to provide more protection from the elements than what Tarter has done with this feeder.

Other Hay Bale Feeder Features

As pointed out earlier, the design is extremely easy to load through the removable end gate and the elevated bale is kept off the ground and away from rot-inducing moisture. You won’t need to lay your bale on a pallet or come up with some other ‘trick’ to keep your hay off the ground and fresh.  Simply set it in this feeder and you’re done!  This is what saves you money!

This design is also built on skids to aid in moving it around from pasture to pasture as needed.  It is constructed with a sturdy 1-3/4″ round steel tubing and weighs 108 pounds for easy management.

All around, this great design allows you to feed both horses and cows and when coupled with the galvanization, it is a long-lasting, sturdy, time and money saving feeder that will work well with all your animals!

Horse hay feeder from Hay Hut – A great horse round bale feeder!

Barn WorldBarn World now carries the Hay Hut hay feeder!

 As the entire country is affected by the drought, the cost of feeding your livestock continues to rise.  It’s now more important then ever to minimize waste from feeding.

Barn World carries a large selection of hay feeders to minimize waste and provide increase profits.  The Hay Hut hay feeder is a great horse hay feeder that is so easy to use and simple in design that feeding round bales to your animals is a cinch.

Horse Hay Feeder

In addition to the actual hay/cost savings, the use of large bale hay significantly reduces Labor costs and these Hayhuts help to minimise pasture stress in overstock situations and during poor forage growing conditions.

It is interesting to note how well these units stop ‘big bale bickering’ and also how they bring a strong air of calmness and contentedness across the ranch as the horses all know that they have a constant source of forage.

The unit ships in two halves with simple build instructions and takes approximately 30 minutes to bolt together. They are very easy to move, manage, load and maintain

The Hayhut is a robust, durable, and UV stabilized covered hay feeder made of polyethylene and hence it cannot rust and does not require any maintenance unlike the majority of metal feeders.

 

The Hayhut is a full 84 inches in depth so that it can accommodate the largest of round rolls now being produced in the USA and up to twenty conventional square bales or the majority of big square bales. This additional depth also allows it to be easily pushed back over very large bales, even if they have been placed on a pallet, without catching the top lip of the feeder on the bale.

It is 84 inches high so that there is plenty of headroom for the use of a pallet while still allowing for good airflow and cooling over the top of the bale.

Hayhut will fit in the back of pickup. The width of 72 inches allows up to three units (in six halves) to be transported easily in a standard bed pick-up truck (see photo).

The Hayhut is delivered in halves to reduce shipping costs and a single half unit can be ordered. A half unit can be mounted against a wall or hard structure for use with conventional square bales. It can also be mounted against a fence with a locally purchased plywood back attached for weather protection

This half unit measures 42″ x 72″ x 84″ and has four feeding windows.

The unit ships in two halves with simple build instructions and takes approximately 30 minutes to bolt together. They are very easy to move, manage, load and maintain and we have many testimonials to that effect. The Hayhut is supplied with all assembly hardware and a lifting eye for relocation purposes. It can also be relocated with a round roll by inserting the roll inside the unit. Just see our video to see how easy it is to move.

Hayhuts are warranted for 1 year. Similar units of identical material from the same manufacturer have been examined after 6 years of 24/7 use in Missouri and this leads us to believe that Hayhuts should provide at least 10 years of good service which is an outstanding return on investment.They are designed and manufactured to accommodate all sizes of round rolls up to 1600 lbs. We have incorporated bigger windows for larger horses up to 17hh and anchor points for windy conditions.

Here’s a great demonstration video:

Gottado Ranch, Ocala – April 2011
We purchased 2 Hay Huts at an equine event in Ocala, FL. They are easy to set up and use. As soon as we had them in the field the horses came over to check it out. They were eating out of it before we left. We had a really bad rainstorm about 3 days after we started using our Hay Huts. I went out after the storm to check the hay inside the huts. The hay was bone dry! The wind did not even blow rain in the windows. The horses love it and none of them fight. There is no manure or urine in the hay because the Hay Hut prevents this. This results in almost all of the hay in the Hay Hut is being used as food rather than bedding. Thank you Hay Hut for a great product that saves time and money. We plan on purchasing another Hay Hut before next winter.

January 2011
Thank you so much
for your courtesy and help as I decided whether or not to buy your Hayhuts product, for Potomac Glen Riding School . Since we have four paddocks at Potomac Glen, each containing 5 to 7 horses, we needed at least four Hayhuts, and I was initially very concerned about what I thought might be an expensive investment.

I am very pleased 
to report that the four Hayhuts I purchased have exceeded my wildest hopes of better hay usage & economy. Without a doubt, the Hayhuts have halved my round bale usage in just the last few months, thereby cutting my hay costs substantially. The Hayhuts have eliminated hay waste by keeping the horses from sleeping & defecating on the round bale hay. They also keep the ice, snow and rain off the round bales so I no longer lose a lot of hay. The Hayhuts have also eliminated the typical wasted mound of unusable hay, and the horses eat all of the round bale hay and leave only dust. My quality if life has improved because, in addition to saving on my round bale hay costs, I have also cut my work load substantially by feeding the bales to my horses only once a week, instead of two times a week, and the paddock clean up is virtually non-existent! Thank you again for your Hayhuts. When finances permit, I will be adding two more Hayhuts to the riding school. I will be happy to talk to anyone who is interested in Hayhuts. They can contact me at (301)601-0622, or our website is www.potomacglenridingschool.com. I will be happy to tell them about my experiences and to heartily recommend Hayhuts!

Eliminates almost all waste!
Just a note to tell you I don’t think you were totally truthful with me when we talked about the hay hut: you said I could probably reduce hay waste by about 30%… well I have now fed two round bales out of the hut and am COMPLETELY CONVINCED waste is almost totally non existent! I watch the horses eat every day at some time or other and it seems when they do drag a mouthful out of the hut and drop it, that before they stick their heads back in they almost always pick up what they have dropped and eat it first. If there is a mouthful laying on the ground when they first walk up to the hut they usually pick it up and eat it first! They have developed really good “table” manners. I would bet out of the two bales fed so far, not even three (YES 3!) pounds of hay has been wasted and when it has snowed it was totally protected. The price initially, did seem high but with the price of hay it will pay for itself in very short order, well worth the investment for sure! Thanks for delivering and helping me get started assembling it and Thanks for a GREAT product!

The Hay Hut is really working out well!
The horses love it. Little to no waste on the hay. The hay stays dry, and no fussing. We did learn to set the hay on end instead of the side, as on the side they were able to peal layers off and out. Not so when it’s sitting on end. Carole (Missouri)

MAY 1st 2010
I just wanted to tell you that I put up 2 huts in my fields for my 5 horses and the 2 round bales lasted 3 weeks! I was feeding 4 bales of hay/day and at $4-$5/bale/day, that was about $16-$20/day. With the Hayhuts I am only spending about $4/day! I love them! Thanks, Kelly Melberg Winlock, Wa

A letter from Pennsylvania

We wanted to drop you a note and let you know how satisfied we are with your product. We purchased three units from you in July ’09. The units were assembled and put in the pastures once we received them. We started feeding hay on and off from October until December. Starting in December we began feeding fulltime from the feeders.

Our hay usage has shown a dramatic decrease. We do not see the large hay/manure piles that we routinely had using conventional round bale feeders. By this time each winter I am usually looking for sources of hay; our barn still has enough to last us for another two months. We have the largest number of horses that we ever have had on the farm, we have used less hay than we used to with fewer animals. We have fed small square bales, large round bales and large square bales in the feeders: they handle all of these varieties without any problems at all.

We are feeding animals in a variety of sizes and breeds. They all readily use the feeders without any problems. We are feeding our foals, yearlings, broodmares, miniature donkeys and a large Thoroughbred and Irish Sport horse on these feeders. We have three pastures running at the present time, one feeder has five horses on it, one has ten broodmares and the other has six geldings and two donkeys.

Assembly of the units was easy and took only around 20 minutes per hut. The green color blends in well with our fields and makes the huts easy to find in snow drifts, lol. Ordering and delivery were easy and I believe we will easily recover the cost of the units by the end of this year or the beginning of next. The amount of hay saved and a decrease in wasted hay/manure mixed is unbelievable.

We would highly recommend your product to anyone feeding horses round bales of hay or even small bales. The quality of the huts, the cost, the performance and your customer service have made purchasing and using these units a pleasure.

Thank you, The Hillards Pat and Kathy Hillard

City of Houston Mounted Patrol
Hayhuts are everything they say they are and more. We’ve had 4 Hayhuts for over 5 months now and have already recognized a savings with less waste. All 38 Police Horses love the Hayhuts as there is always fresh clean hay available to them when they are turned out. There is no fighting over the hay and no injuries caused by the Hayhuts. We have all sizes and breeds of horses at the Houston Mounted Patrol and all of them love the Hayhuts. Hayhuts prove the simplest designs are usually the best. Our horses thank you for making such a great product!” – Sgt. Leslie Wills, Houston Mounted Patrol

Nebraska Blizzard
Hay Feeders for Horses
Hi Denis, Just thought I’d let you know the Hayhuts made it through their first Nebraska blizzard just fine! I thought I may find them either full of snow or blown across my feeding area, but, neither was the case. They stayed in place, no snow was inside and the horses had plenty to eat all through the storm! – Mary Anne G. – Nebraska From using one round bale every 3-3 1/2 days to every 5-5 1/2 days I have been using the amazing Hayhuts for not quite a year now. I was about done with round bales before I found these. The horses would waste so much. We had one paddock where we were feeding 1 round bale every 3 to 3 1/2 days. When we started using the Hayhut it went to 5, 5 1/2 days sometimes even 6 days. I am now using 1/2 a Hayhut in a shed and another on the fence line. We throw small square bales or flakes of hay. There is no waste doing that. When you feed alfalfa to the babies they do not stand on it any more. They love their hay hut. If you ever use one you will not let it go. What a great invention.
– Karen Bruce, Irish Oaks Farm

The mini can eat there too
“Well it’s been a week and I LOVE it. Loads of rain and all the hay dry. The mini can eat there too, if I put hay high or just put bale under opening. Another satisfied customer. Thanks!” – Vicki – Florida

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

Tuesday, 16 August 2011 14:10
Written by Tony Okon – Progressive Cattleman

 

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.
