Over the years, the hole keeps getting deeper and deeper under my feeder. I had to drag one out of the muck last night so I've been thinking about what material to fill the hole with.
1. It's in a friends pasture, so I can't fill it with concrete.
2. I need to fill it with something that grass will grow back in one day.
3. I don't want to move the feeder because I have a nice pen built around it to keep the cows out.
I think the optimal material would be caliche. We use this on our ranch in West Texas for road base and it gets hard. Problem is, I've called a dozen aggregate places and nobody carries caliche here anymore. They have all switched over to crushed concrete for road base.
Another idea is decomposed granite or some type of heavy sand. I only need about 2 yards so cost is not a big issue. ANY IDEAS??
