Outside Feeders in Daily Use

We have locked the cows out of the hay field during the rainy weather to keep the grass from getting chewed up from their big hooves.
The big, round, outdoor feeders are used morning and night.


The rock base that was hauled in before the feeders were set helps hold the animals out of the mud. Mike did a pretty good job of smoothing the area. Even after several days of heavy rain, only one side of one of the feeders started to break down into the mud.

No more rock will be able to be hauled into this area to fix the muddy part. We (the herd and us) will have to just make do with the way the feeders are until we re-do the area next summer.
