This image shows a simple feeding system for ammoniated small grain chaff.  This system was developed by a rancher in southeastern Saskatchewan.  The chaff is transported to a central location, water is added, and the chaff is ammoniated with the addition of anhydrous ammonia.  Once ammoniated, a simple electric fence is erected around the chaff pile.  The fence is powered with a solar charger (pictured) and the cattle consume the chaff by eating from the pile under the electric fence.
