Your local FEED STORE

I was able to get this Tray at my local TRACTOR SUPPLY COMPANY for $6.99

Behrens Utility Pan has multiple uses from oil drip pan to pet dish. Better than plastic!
I use this as a water pan for my chickens to drink or stand in to cool off on hot days. I have another one I use for their dust bath. Great all purpose pan. Good size great price.

Now we start my project: DIY Tray with rope handle and galvanized, which can be used for many jobs.

My holes were 3/8” because of the size rope I was using.

 You can clean up the holes by rolling pliers

inside the hole. This will smooth out the rough spots.

 Measure 20 ” length for each handle.
You will trim later, but you need the room to tie your knots.
