Our History

For over 17 years, our goal at The Hay Manager, LLC., has been to innovate and improve hay management tools for the farming industry. In addition to manufacturing round bale feeders, we provide:

  • Mineral feeders
  • Tools for pasture improvements
  • Calf catchers

We also offer custom product services to fit the operational needs of farmers and ranchers across the Midwest.

Originally, the first Hay Manager feeder was created to reduce waste from livestock feeders. As time passed, we started manufacturing other products to help local farmers. While cattle feeders have been our most popular product, we’ve researched and manufactured many different feeders and innovations for other animals, like sheep and bison.

We are a small manufacturing company from Trent, SD, working to meet the needs of farmers and ranchers who want a more efficient use of their hay. The Hay Manager, LLC. is proud to remain a family owned and managed company that spans two generations of Lacey family members.
