Over the years, Applegate has continued to develop its feeder line into one of the largest and most versatile in the market.

Feeding round bales without a feeder can result in over 50% of the hay going to waste. Without a feeder, the animals step on the hay, and pass manure or urine on the hay. In the long run, the cost of the hay will increase. Most find the cost of a round bale feeder is less than the cost of wasted hay over time.
