I used another piece of hog panel to fashion hay feeders on the front panels of the pens. There is some wastage of hay, but that's ok. We haven't been able to find straw this year cause of the drought this summer, so the waste hay can double as bedding. Another nice feature of the stalls is that the front panel is on hinges, so when I want to clean out the stall, I can open it up fully and scoop it out with the tractor. To stablize the front panels when the stall is in use, there are stakes pounded into the ground. Those can be removed to open the whole stall up. I'm overall very pleased with these stalls.
|I climbed up to get some hay, and thought it would be good to get some arial shots. |
We have alot of vertical space. I would be nice to use that some day.
|We have three of these smaller pens. They will be just right for kidding stalls.|
|The corner stall is quite large and comfortably holds several goats.|
|The 5th stall is also large - as large as two smaller stalls.|
The larger stalls are great for pen breeding.
