    Cattle feeders. Keep it dry. They will eat if it gets wet but best served dry..

    Made this out of some scrap wood and old piece of tin I had laying around the house. I just put it out this weekend and it is the first time this year I have put rice bran out and the first time in a couple years that I put it out. I got my camera over it and the corn feeder right next to it because I wanted to see which one they liked the best. It took 6 2x4's, plywood - I think the tub is 24"x32"x6" just some old scrap pieces I had laying around, and 8'x3' piece of tin cut in half. The bottom of the pan is I think 24" off the ground or maybe that was to the top rim. I can't remember, I had a few beers while building it, but anyway here it is. The buffet line is open for the deer!!! Oh, and it is 6' tall to the tin.
