Patent Number: 6,293,224

Title: Supplemental feed block holder

Abstract: A feed block holder having a generally U-shape configuration with a first mounting post adapted to be secured to a vertical fence post at a least two locations along the length of the mounting post, and a feed block support post that is adapted to receive a supplemental feed block with a base member interconnecting the mounting post and the feed block support post. The mounting post and the feed block support post preferably extend in the same direction such that the plurality of securing points on the mounting post counteracts the tendency of the holder to pivot in response to loading of a supplemental feed block such as a salt block on the feed block holder. The feed block support post is configured to have a inner larger diameter section and a outer smaller diameter section such that lateral stability of the feed block can be provided as a result of the engagement of the larger diameter section of the support post engaging with the inner walls of a cavity formed in the supplemental feed block.
