thats what prompted trevor lienemann, owner and entrepreneur of lienetics ranch to develop the bextra bale feeder. being a cpa and cattlemen, and knowing there had to be a more efficient way to feed cattle, and maximize hay savings, he began by designing the original cone hay-saving insert in the early 2000s.

an economic model analysis of the three methods accounting for hay consumption, equipment costs and labor showed that feeding with the tapered-cone round bale feeder was the most economical for feeding cowherds of 100-300 head.
the cone feeder could be improved by placing a hay saver panel at the bottom. a final tip to help reduce feed losses is to place a new bale in the feeder when only 10% of the bale is left. this will force the cows to eat a majority of the bale as well as make sure there is adequate room for the new bale.

researchers at the university of minnesota set out to compare hay waste, hay intake and economics of nine round-bale feeders and a no-feeder control when used during horse feeding. nine round-bale feeders were tested: cinch net, cone, covered cradle, hayhut, hay sleigh, ring, tombstone, tombstone saver and waste less.
cone feeder was same diameter and feeder space bars as ring feeder. bottom and top sections were solid, with open feed access in the middle 2 feet of height. overall height was 6 feet. an interior cone of bars kept the bale in the center of the feeder. cradle feeder was 12 feet long by 6 feet wide.

the cone style hay feeder is considered to the best variation of a hay ring due to its high level of efficiency. according to a study titled, effects of bale feeder type and processing on hay waste, intake, and performance of beef cattle, cone style hay feeders are more efficient with a total waste percentage of 3.5%. in comparison, the hay ring feeder elicited a waste percentage of 6.1 9%, and no ring feeder resulted in 45% hay waste.
large round bale feeders compared livestock update, february 2003. mark l. wahlberg, extension animal scientist, 4-h livestock, va tech in a just published article in journal of animal science, dr. dan buskirk and associates at michigan state university evaluated 4 round bale feeder designs for the amount of hay that was wasted and differences in cow behavior.
chain cone bale feeder, 8 ft. diameter. created by behlen country , this feeder allows for a herd to have easy access to the hay, while being able to move and eat through the thickest bale. made of heavy duty steel sheeting and measuring 6 ft. high, this feeder suspends the hay off the ground so the cattle can easily access it,
ring and ring/cone type feeders were the most efficient, resulting in an average of only 4.5 percent waste, while trailer type feeders had 11.4 percent waste. cradle type feeders were the least efficient with 14.6 percent of the hay wasted. these results support the concept that feeder choice is important.
these pinecone feeders are so pretty and theyre so easy to make with just a few simple supplies you can make one in less than 10 minutes its a great craft for kids, tweens, teens, adults, seniors and even in the classroom
