It has been an extremely difficult decision but we are liquidating our entire sheep flocks of Texels and Katahdins and all of our sheep equipment due to David’s recent and unexpected heart bypass surgery. (UPDATE: ALL OF OUR SHEEP HAVE BEEN SOLD.) Our remaining equipment that is for sale is listed below. Please contact us if you are interested in purchasing or have questions. (Asking prices are included for each item immediately following its description below.)
We will be adding some smaller items later as we have time to put those together, take pics, and post them. Thank you for your interest.
LOT 1 – FOUR (4) 8′ SINGLE-SIDED SHEEP AND GOAT FEEDERS BUILT BASED ON PREMIER1’s FEEDER PLANS
Here are the specs on this trough from Premier1’s website https://www.premier1supplies.com/img/instruction/127.pdf
We used welded 4″x 4″ goat panel to make the part where the sheep and goats eat hay through. Each of these panels is welded at the joints to help them be more sturdy and last longer. We have found that these feeders work great as fenceline feeders for sheep and goats. However, they need to be under roof in a row to be protected from the elements. These feeders work well for feeding both grain and hay or both at the same time.
Asking $100 EACH for these FOUR (4) 8′ Goat and Sheep Feed troughs.
LOT 2 – TWO (2) KETCHAM HAY FEEDERS RC108 6 1/2′ x 8 1/2′ Bale Feeder
Here is a link below to the specs on these hay feeders from Ketcham’s website. (Please keep in mind that the prices shown in their catalog DO NOT INCLUDE SHIPPING and that is a big part of the cost associated normally with purchasing these due to their size and weight. They will be happy to provide you with a quote on shipping if you are trying to compare costs with purchasing these from our farm.) Shipping when we purchased 3 of these feeders at one time cost us over $300.00 so that’s why we have priced these feeders as we have. Thank you to those folks who have asked us this very question.
We have used these feeders since the fall of 2018 and they do an excellent job of feeding either large round bales or 3′ x 3′ x 7′ large square bales. They help save hay and we’ve never had an issue with mature sheep or lambs getting hung up in these feeders.
Asking $475 EACH for these TWO (2) KETCHAM HAY FEEDERS
LOT 3 – D-S EQUIPMENT’S 8′ PORTABLE LOADING RAMP
Here are the specs on this 8′ loading ramp from D-S Equipment’s website https://www.dslivestock.biz/products/category/loading-hauling-sheep/

Asking $750 for this D-S Equipment’s 8′ Portable Loading Ramp
