Tuck a flake of hay into the door.
Once our milking days were done, I would use this to hold a bale of hay. They'd get loose mineral in the front.
Easy and free to make using twine and an old feed bag. Worked pretty well for 1-2 flakes of hay.
This works pretty well, particularly with the top to prevent the hay from getting wet.
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.
