Is your water tank full or empty?  Are you going to have to walk out and look?

Here’s an easy way to reduce steps when you’re checking to make sure your livestock still have water.  It takes a jug, a wire or some string, and a good sized rock, all things we’re betting you have at home. Thanks to Luke Simons for sharing his simple solution. (There’s a bit of wind noise with the video, but we’re sure you’ll get the idea.)

    This is great. My biggest worry these days is water lines failing. Temps in the 90’s with humidity in the 60-80+% range makes it HARD to stay cool. If the water fails I worry most about the two dogs; figuring the sheep and calves can handle it a bit better. I got off work late yesterday and had to rush to drop a steer at the butcher so this tip would have saved me a few hundred feet of walking in the high humidity 90+ degrees. 🙂 Thanks!
