I know I have used this as the product spotlight before, but, due to our weather conditions this fall, it’s worth discussing again to help us all get through the winter.
Traditional hay rings have been proven for years to reduce wasted hay. Now we have an option to extend our stored hay reserves by saving even more hay than we have in the past. The drought in our state has prevented us from taking advantage of stockpiled forage this fall and caused us to start feeding hay earlier. To extend your hay supply, start by wasting less at the ring.
The Bextra Bale Feeder has been proven to be the best hay-saving ring on the market. Here are some of the reasons why:
Indented uprights center the bale in the feeder for minimal waste.
Cattle eat from the bottom of the feeder in their natural grazing position, and they exit less.
Oklahoma State University research proved that using a Bextra hay feeder reduced hay waste by approximately 58-75 percent compared to a conventional skirted and open-bottom hay feeder.
This feeder will pay for itself and also provide a return on investment from the amount of hay saved.

Quality Co-ops offer two types of Bextra feeders. One is mild steel (black) and carries a one-year warranty; the other is galvaneal (red) and carries a five-year warranty. We also offer the Bextra basket that fits in the top of your existing hay feeder to convert it to a hay-saving feeder.
