During calving season we needed to be able to manage several different groups of heifers at the maternity barn. To facilitate this we built another feeder on the backside of the barn that is identical to the larger Bo Renfro, but includes a roof that is a similar design to one of our fenceline feeders. This structure only holds two bales.
In addition to the hay feeding structures, we also put out feed bunks and mineral feeders to use when needed. You can see in the images below how we spread them out through the facility to ensure that all animals have access to them regardless of which paddock they are in. The feeding structures at this calving facility have proven to be crucial to our intensive management of our heifers during calving season.
