The Grass Whisperer’s $20 Stock Watering Solution

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.

I am the founder, editor and publisher of On Pasture, now retired. My career spanned 40 years of finding creative solutions to problems, and sharing ideas with people that encouraged them to work together and try new things. From figuring out how to teach livestock to eat weeds, to teaching range management to high schoolers, outdoor ed graduation camping trips with fifty 6th graders at a time, building firebreaks with a 130-goat herd, developing the signs and interpretation for the Storm King Fourteen Memorial trail, receiving the Conservation Service Award for my work building the 150-mile mountain bike trail from Grand Junction, Colorado to Moab, Utah...well, the list is long so I'll stop with, I've had a great time and I'm very grateful.
