Bathtub Cattle Waterer
"I used an old cast iron bathtub to make an economical cattle waterer," says Roger Kuntz, Grainfield, Kan.
One benefit of using a bathtub as a waterer is the weight. It stays where you put it and animals can't damage it, notes Kuntz.
"You can fit it with any kind of float valve and set it at any height by drilling through the sides of the tub. I made a steel frame base to keep the tub from falling over. You can weld on these old tubs but they're pretty brittle, so it's tricky. The drain is handy for cleaning it out."
