Unknown to me at the time we “temporarily” put up the inside of the goats barn,
I found my solution to hay waste!
The goats actually figured this out and I went with it because it just made sense.
They have been eating this way for about a year now
Now when we work to finish the barn permanently, we will use this same method all the way down and in the 2 adjoining pens that run to the west of this “big” barn. The walkway is already set up for them and there will be no storage behind the walk for those 2 pens, only the storage in the big barn, but it’s enough. I have plans for some additions that I think will add to the coolness of this whole deal not only for me but for the goats too! This has really made a HUGE difference in the amount of hay wasted. This also keeps us dry in the weather when feeding & satisfies their need to eat what’s on the other side of the fence – teeheehee
