One of the event highlights is the grand prize – a patented GoBob Scientific Hay Feeder, a collaborative design effort involving the OSU Animal Science Department.
This innovative feeder has been meticulously designed to minimize hay waste and deter calves from entering. Constructed from 100% new American steel, the feeder weighs approximately 460 pounds. It's backed by a guarantee to reduce hay feeding costs by at least 30% compared to standard ring feeders, all while offering a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
Lunch during the event will be sponsored by Todd Snyder of L & S Feed and Supply and will be hosted by Double R&P.
