Bunkzilla - The Build!

It was time to tackle a project long overdue.  We've needed a way to feed the cows in the south pasture in all weather conditions.  We had just a plain ol' plastic half pipe style bunk for a few years, but once things like hay and pellets got wet, the cows wouldn't eat it, and it was a mess.

If you can't tell by these pictures that this bunkzilla was built by an engineer, for feeding big, hungry and sometimes itchy cows, go get some glasses.

We'll show the move in the next post.

 Really Big Red with load #2 of wood.  It would make two more trips before we had all we needed
 The base laid out.  Treated 6" X 12" runners
 Every project needs a manager.  We only hire the best
 Base complete

 Managing to be in the way, mostly
 Dale's clever sliding door idea.  Load the hay without having to undo the bales and piece them into the bunk from the front
 Runner base for the sliding door
 Sliding door closed.  Manager seems to be okay with it.  Hard to tell
