Troy Bishopp and John Suscovich of Farm Marketing Solutions get together now and then to share tips for how farmers and ranchers can be good graziers. In this 3:34 video, they talk about how Troy set up his system to water his cattle without letting them walk through his streams. With a $5 piece of plywood, a little hardware cloth a few rocks, some plastic pipe and some water troughs, Troy provides water to all his pastures, without damaging stream banks or water quality.

Troy calls it “Farmer Ingenuity.” We hope watching the video will inspire your ingenuity  too!

And please share how you water your stock. Folks are always looking for new solution to this age old problem and your example might be just the one they need to see.
