The Economics Of The Hay-Mizer®

These examples will show you how quickly a Hay-Mizer® hay feeder can pay for itself and actually start making you money by saving your hay.  This example will be for a cattleman with 50 cows each eating 30 lbs of hay per day.  These examples are based on our experience and customer feedback. 

Under wet and muddy conditions, the savings will be much greater and the payoff will be much quicker.  These numbers may surprise  you, but these examples are based on feedback from our customers.
