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!
