DIY  Goat Hay Feeders

Hay Feeder on the Goat House Door

Tuck a flake of hay into the door.

Milking Stand to Hay Rack Hack

Once our milking days were done, I would use this to hold a bale of hay. They'd get loose mineral in the front.

Feed Bag Hay Feeders

Easy and free to make using twine and an old feed bag. Worked pretty well for 1-2 flakes of hay.

Old Wire  Dog Crate

This works pretty well, particularly with the top to prevent the hay from getting wet.

Rolling Garbage Bin Hay Feeder

The nice thing about this option is that there’s a cover that prevents rain from getting inside. It’s big enough to hold a lot of hay.
