Used to do it all the time. Just lower your deflector as if your feeding on the ground for the first pass or two. then fork it up into a higher pile and start raising your apron and crowding the pile. at this point we lifted our apron up to the max and had a small foot wide belt or maybe could use an old combine pickup belt , we just vice gripped it to the lip and kept piling and forking it up higher. Eventually our pile was 3-4 ' high and then work back from the bunk as far as you want to push it up. When feeding it I hand forked it so didn't get much further than 6-8' from the bunk, when the pile got down I used a snow shovel to push it up. was on closely mowed off ground, worked pretty good and got all the fines in their belly. This was for a fenceline bunk, I don't think it will work too well for bunk feeders.
