Jerry's DIY Goat Feeder Plans


Howdy FarmGirls!  

My hubby Jerry is always ready to make my farm dreams come true.  That is especially true when I need another structure to house or feed farm babies.


Last year our herd more than doubled in size and I decided that I needed a strong feeder for my dairy goats. A feeder with a roof to keep the hay dry, and with enough vertical structure to prevent grass hay from slipping through and being stepped on.


Within a few hours Jerry built me this wonderful feeder. He made most of it from scraps and a few lengths of cull lumber from a home improvement store.


This feeder has been a great help.  I have a few more on my list once our new buck barn is finished.  


Here is a drawing I made from my feeder, complete with measurements.  


Please feel free to use the plan to construct your own feeders, and by all means SHARE this post.  I'd really appreciate if you would send me photos/link of your feeder once it's made too.  

DIY IS FREEDOM!  These feeders cost almost $300 around here to BUY.  Jerry built this one using recycled wood, steel, and $7 in culled lumber for the slats.  

Save your money to buy more goats!  That's my motto.
