Hay Feeding

Posted 2/10/2014 3:23pm by Eugene Wyatt.

800 lb. round bales of hay are harvested on the property in June or July and placed in rows until needed to feed the sheep in the Winter.


With an implement on the front end loader of the tractor I spear the bales and transport them to a hay feeder in the sheep yard.


Dominique cuts the twine that holds the bale together and Poem holds the sheep away from the bale until I can put it in the feeder.


Later: Two sides of the hay feeder collapse inward as the sheep eat the hay keeping them off the bale.
