Plans for Adolescent Horned Goat Feeder
These adolescent horned goat feeder plans are the product of 6 years of progressive development. This is the best system to minimize waste while feeding multiple horned goats. This system also keeps goats from entering the feeder and soiling the feed. These plans are specifically designed for goats between 6 months and 3 years of age. This is the smallest width for this age group. Plans for larger goats must be altered so they cannot reach across. This feeder design is easily customized and is for use underneath a shelter. For outdoor feeders, keep corner posts
long as noted below for roof construction. For information on building a feeder for adults, use these plans in reference with our blog post or this youtube video.
The design for the horned goat feeder:
This horned goat feeder maximizes the number of goats able to feed at once while minimizing waste due to
multiple features. It also makes for easy cleaning and restocking of feed. This design maximizes
space by feeding more than 3 goats at once. The width is ideal for allowing dominant and
subdominant goats to feed across from each other. This prevents one alpha goat from dominating an
in-line system or single feed area.
Additionally, the dividers limit goats to individual stalls. This allows them
visibility to escape incoming dominants. The multi-sided feeder design provides feeding opportunities for at least
3 goats and up to 8 goats at once. This feeder system uses minimal costs for materials and provides the greatest feeding opportunity for many goats. This design is not intended for commercial use but is ideal for smaller herds.
