What Size Feeder do You Need

What size feeder do you need to buy? Start with a 1000 pound feeder and know you don’t have to fill it up but when you need that amount you’ve got it!

A question I get frequently from new land owners is what size of feeder do I buy. Most of the time they’re going to want to start with a small feeder and end up having to go back and buy a larger one. The best thing that I tell people is start with a 1,000 or 2,000 pound feeder. You don’t have to fill it up when you start out. As those deer get on that feed, its going to save you trips to the ranch or to the lease and save you money in the long run.
