You can go to any store that sells fishing supplies and get a fish scale if you do not have any other luck.
One that goes up to say, maybe 20 pounds?
The while you are at that same store, grab a canvas wood carrier. It should look like a long piece of canvas with a mesh handle at each end. Almost like a duffle bag with no sides. You can put your hay flakes in there, and hang the handles on the fish scale, which you can hang from just about anything..
So.. does this make sense? If no, let me know, and I will try and find a picture for you.

I think I have the SD75. I have it sitting on a upside down storage container and the readout mounted on the wall at eye level. Very easy to weigh, read, and quite accurate, though I think probably from the other suggestion you could likely get something cheaper.
I do like that it goes high enough that I can weigh a few full bales of hay from a new load and figure out how long that load will last me much more accurately. In this area they sell hay by the bale and weights vary from about 35-65 lbs. The hay sellers can rarely tell you, accurately, how much their bales weigh.
