Utter confusion

All jokes aside here is the best way to feed your deer if you raise more than you can take the time to do. I was taking six hours a day feeding fawns.
We put 12 fawns in a alfalfa clover pen after two weeks old. I still sit in front of the fawns just so they know I was the one who gave the milk. As you can see they line out quite well and seem to all be on a nipple.
It was a big chore feeding them and took three guys so lost many hours when real work could be done.
They were for lambs and goat kids and work very well on the lambs here.
I found these hangers at Awesome product that works.
