I'd like to start feeding root crops to milk cows. I find tons or articles about growing root crops for this purpose. Nearly everything says to chop or grind up the roots. The frustrating part is they don't say how!
I've been doing searches for what device to make or buy to accomplish this and I can't find anything except references to a tub grinder. When I search for tub grinder I keep getting stuff about grinding tree stumps
Anyone do this and can point me in the right direction? I really cannot see me cutting roots on a tree stump with a machete. When I was younger absolutely.....now, nooooo.

Txgypsy did you ever figure something out?

I was looking for a shredder that could chop up sorghum and broom corn stocks. I have a hammer mill but the sorghum stalks just wind around insides and cutting up the stalks with clippers take forever. Never thought of doing root crops but that would be nice like pumpkins and sugar beets.

Does anyone know if any of the shredders work on cardboard?
