Feed Troughs
I made two feed troughs out of a 275-gal. oval oil tank cut in half. I used 1 1/2-in. dia. used pipe to make legs 30-in. long. I put 1 1/ 4-in. angle iron around the top to cover the sharp edges. Each trough will feed 8 to 10 head of cattle. It is heavier and cheaper than buying fiberglass troughs. These tanks are outdated so you can buy them pretty cheap. I cut a small hole in the bottom for water to drain out when it rains. (Ivan L. High, Rt. 1, Box 115, Gorin, Mo.)
