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.
