Put the Waist on your cow, not on the ground!

“It saves a lot of hay”, said Flegen, who operates a cow/calf and feedlot operation south of Dell Rapids. “You drop a bale in those feeders and drop a bale in one of Ted’s feeders and you just about want to cry when you walk into the yard later,” Flegen said. “With brand X feeder, a quarter of the bale is on the ground.”

“They are designed so that anything the cows pull, falls down inside the feeder where they can clean it up,” said Brown, who lives 10 miles west of Dell Rapids. “I recommend them to anyone that wants to save money with the price of feed.”

He adds that the Hay Manager is built to take “farmer abuse”.
