The Ultimate Course Bundle: Goat Stanchion Building Plans
These goat stanchion building plans provide step by step instructions. Course contents include complete lists for necessary tools and materials. A quality goat stanchion is a critical tool for every goat owner and not just for dairy goats. All goats both male and female require regular hoof trimming at least every few months. Having a stanchion greatly facilitates this process and makes hoof trimming a breeze. Not to mention just a one person job. Stanchions are obvious necessities for the dairy goat community to restrain and milk goats as well.
The course offers the complete How To for building your own goat stanchion with some added key features.
Key Features Include:
- Unique variable head trap system for any size goat.
- Extra wide opening for goats with wide horn structure.
- Optional foot entrapment to secure kicking goats.
- Extra wide construction for any goat and additional space for bracing while trimming.
This stanchion is an easy home-build. That allows every goat owner a simple, cost effective solution to goat restraint. Also, instructions include optional features for variable head capture and hoof restraint. All goat owners benefit from using a stanchion. This allows simple restraint for routine hoof trimming. The wide platform design makes bracing a breeze for both large and small goats.
The Ultimate Course Bundle: Horned Goat Feeder Plans
The design for the horned goat feeder plans:
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 or 10 goats depending on herd dynamics. 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.
The plans offered in this course provide a full materials list, list of tools required, cuts to make, and assembly instructions. Images are also included showing assembly and measurements. No difficult cuts or angles are required! These are the best horned goat feeder plans for residential goat owners.
The plans you purchase are all online-based. You will have a login for your “account” and access the plans and any other courses you purchase with this login. This way the course materials and videos are always there for you to access.
Waste minimizing features of this design include:
- 4” gap below the feeder where goats can reach underneath and feed from the nutrient rich chaff that falls through the utility panel feeder floor.
- Crossbars over the goats horns forces goats to maneuver slightly to enter the feeder and keep their heads in and down while they feed.
- Crossbars however are not so low as to inhibit a quick escape if a dominant goat comes in.
- The combination of the crossbars and dividers keeps goats from jumping into the feeder and soiling the feed.
- The middle divider keeps feed accessible to goats while making it uncomfortable and inconvenient for any baby goat that tries to jump in.
- The open top design makes placing feed inside effortless and is easily compatible for roofing or slot feeding designs.
- Finally, the compact low cube design of this feeder makes it easy to clean by tipping it up and
propping it with an object. It is then easy to pitchfork feed that has fallen through the utility panel
and actually recycle good feed from underneath.
Ultimately these are the best horned goat feeder plans to date for feeding multiple horned goats at once.
