Yeah, he can.
But we've got this BIG supply of wood to use up so we can get in around the shed to fix it  ;)

 I use the ground for my sows and self feeders for my growers.  I do have some of that piple laying around except it is black with albue stripe through it.   A chain saw is a wonderful thing when it comes to cutting these pipes in half.  I dont bother filling in the ends just leave them open. I do find they are rather heavy though to lift and clean out.

 self feeders can be filled with the mill and tractor and tha means I can put 300 or 500 kg or even a 1000 kg out in one hit and it wil last all week depending on the number in the pen.
