Default Cotton seed feeder setup

Working on a new feeder setup. Holds probably 2-3k lbs of cotton seed and let's them get every bit. I bet if you lowered the design you could get one of those bed winch mats and just roll out all the seed easy.

Default Cotton seed feeder setup

Looks like a great idea. Lotta seed and easy access. What do those panels cost? Always looking for a better mousetrap


I use the water tote frames and can stack 1500 lbs on it.. I paid $25 for one and got the second one for free so I'm curious of your investment?

We built these panels for around the feeder to keep pigs out but they have become less of an issue. Found 2 cattle panels and welded some conduit and boom. Wanted them to be able to get everything vs some the center is hard to get to.

I like it. One that size would last longer than what I use.

10' long 40" tall by 3.5' wide. Honestly could fill with 3-4 truck beds if you wanted.

No live stock on the place. Last year we had unexpected cows and couldn’t get fences secured well enough...lost 10tons. We do have some of the circluar ones, but those don’t hold much. I’m the guy in the truck doing all the work...

1 more large panel feeder and 2 more cylinder styles, 5 truck loads will wipe you out!
