Bextra Hay Saver Bale Feeder


The most costly practice associated with raising beef cattle is feeding stockpiled forages. Extra value and feed savings can be obtained with a Bextra bale feeder.

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 exit less.

Oklahoma State University research proved that using a Bextra hay feeder reduced hay waste by approximately 58 percent and 75 percent compared to a conventional skirted and open bottom hay feeder, respectively.

This feeder will pay for itself and also provide a return on investment from the amount of hay saved.

We offer two types of Bextra feeders. One is mild steel (black) and carries a 1-year warranty; the other is galvaneal (red) and carries a 5-year warranty. We also offer the Bextra basket that fits in the top of your existing hay feeder to make it a hay-saving feeder.

Talk to your local Quality Co-op about the Bextra feeder this fall and start saving more money and feeding less hay.
