[ noun ] (geography) a boundary line created by a fence
Used in print(Successful Farming, 59:12...)
There are three principal feed_bunk types for dairy and beef_cattle : ( 1 ) Fence-line bunks - cattle eat from one side while feed is put_in from the opposite side of the fence by self unloading wagons ; ( 2 ) Mechanized bunks - they sit within the feed_lot , are filled by a mechanical conveyor above feeding surface ; ( 3 ) Special bunks - as discussed here , they permit cattle to eat from all sides .
Animals eat only from one side , so the fence-line bunk must be twice as long as the mechanical bunk .
Because of their location , on the edge of the feed_lot , fence-line bunks are not in_the_way_of mechanical manure removal .
