Weighted Barrel Protects Feed Bags

reuse teat barrell for feed storage

Our bulls are kept outside. The bull ration in the 25-kilogram (55-pound) paper bags gets spoiled if rained on. So, we thoroughly cleaned an empty predip barrel and cut the lid 2 inches under the rim. Then, we bolted a weight to the lid with a handle welded to the weight. It holds four 25-kilogram bags.
