How To Make A Drinking Hole For Cattle
To make a drinking hole for cattle in a farm pond, I chop a hole in the ice and insert an upside down plastic traffic cone. Water comes up through the cone so cattle can drink. When water freezes inside the slick plastic cone, it's easy to pull out the plug to clear it. Much easier than chopping a new hole every day. The idea could also be used in a large water tank. We leave a metal handle standing inside the traffic cone. The ice plug freezes around the handle so we can pull it out as needed. Sometimes we use a slide hammer to yank it out.
