When constructing the feeders using a Tpost and the fencing material for the cottonseed feeders what kind of fencing material are you using? anything you can get at Home Depot or Lowes?

58" vmesh fence is the ticket but hard to find
i called tedesky fence co 817-599-3400 and paid them and they were nice enough to have me go pick a roll up at keystone steel & wire in sherman tx 903-893-0191

maybe they could set you up with a closer distributer

I'm trying to find a better way to feed cotton seed. Deer eat it at natural head height and too much falls on the ground that they stomp into the dirt.

We use the "V" fencing but it is expensive.....You can use ranch fencing, make the hoops about 3 feet in diameter...

Some guys are using frames from chemical totes & the openings are probably 4X4 5X5 inch squares.

We use V wire cut into 9 ft lengths then formed into a cylinder. Makes a cylinder about 36 inches across by 5 ft tall. Holds around 800lbs

2x4 welded works as good as anything and is a lot cheaper than V
