You would need to check the exact prescriptions for the areas in question.  Ask to see the full HLS agreement (which will include a whole-farm ELS or UELS to underpin it.)

But you definitely do need to check, yes, because some of the options will preclude any kind of feeder.  We have to scatter hay on the ground - and that's on ground that isn't in HLS as well as ground that is.
Don't listen to the money men - they know the price of everything and the value of nothing

Live in a cohousing community with small farm for our own use.  Dairy cows (rearing their own calves for beef), pigs, sheep for meat and fleece, ducks and hens for eggs, veg and fruit growing
