The sparks have been flying at Common Sense Manufacturing all winter long.

“In the winter time when we are going really hard we will run 19 full time employees and we work 45, 50 hrs a week sometimes,” said owner Kelly Melius.

“We make several different kinds of bale feeders. We make several different kinds of feed bunks. We make a bottomless bunk that has unique features to it. We make a pan bunk. We make continuous fence. We make windbreak. We make a free standing panel and a calf shelter,” said Melius.
