I quit buying the heavy-duty $300 bale rings because the skirts came off in one year. I started buying the $150 economy feeders without skirts. All I do is attach a piece of cattle panel to that feeder with hose clamps to make a great bale ring that is much lighter and easier to move by hand and doesn’t blow away with the wind when you flip them up to move. And you get two feeders for the price of one!
