Ok,what to do with old feed bags. I get thru 10 -20 per week during the winter months from feeding the goats and chickens.
I would like to find some economical way of storing these apart from stuffing bags within bags.
Apart from the property here in Ohio I also have land in Colorado, where I would like to use these bags to build a sand bag home.
Does any one have any ideas for storage for these.
I collect feed bags from the cattle ranchers in my area. I use them when I sell my homemade compost.
As for storage, I stack them flat putting some heavy boxes atop the stack to flatten them out good. Once the stack gets around 2 foot thick, I tie it up with baling twine. Then I stack the tied up stacks in a pile in the barn. That's the best method I've come up with so far. It still takes up space. I haven't figured out an easy, simple way to compress the stacks further.
It's never too late to start! I retired to homestead on the slopes of Mauna Loa, an active volcano. I relate snippets of my endeavor on my blog : www.kaufarmer.blogspot.com
You’ll find me in my office. I’ll probably be drinking. And reading this tiny ad.
