Looks Great!

Does the top remove from the base for easy transport?

Good lookin' job! I take it that's for deer and not cattle. I don't think it would stand up to a herd of Angus.

you might have an idea there, just think about it.. if you could load it and shoot it out there (twine cut of course) it would be a cool way to feed cattle!

You might consider anchoring the legs down once its set in place.

Having some experience with a similar build that holds deer blocks, you will find that the alfalfa bale will put a lot of stress on the metal when you load it.

It will be very top heavy and if you have exotics it could get pushed over.

It has holes in the legs that will be anchored and itís built like a tank (overbuilt). It will be just fine.
