I have two trailer house frames, would make a great bridge deck, or cattle guards with a little work. They are 70' long. I would like to donate them someone in the fire area that could use them and benefit from them. They are located in Hysham, MT and would need to be hauled. I can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Is there something else but hay. That we can bail that will make good food for the cattle.
Living in the north corner of ND and don't think there is lots of spare hay.
But can maybe bail other stuff.
Is there anything that would make good food after the combine ??
