Nipple Waterer


Nipple Waterer

Trying to water hogs in an open trough or bowl is an exercise in futility, as the hogs will think you put that water there to entertain them, not to keep them hydrated. Unless you really like carrying buckets, try this approach instead: thread one of these nipple drinkers through the side of a 55-gallon plastic drum and seal with JB Weld’s WaterWeld or 3M’s 5200 Marine Caulk to make an inexpensive, spill-proof, tug-proof and generally pig-proof waterer. In addition to drinking water, in hot weather provide your hogs with a wet area for wallowing.

Additional Information

Feeding Watering Supplies

Raising animals on pasture at low stocking densities and providing outdoor access in the winter instead of confining animals to a climate-controlled barn means we can’t take advantage of the efficiencies offered by modern automatic feeding and watering equipment. The extra time involved in moving feed, water and fencing contributes greatly to the higher cost of ethically raised animal products. These products will help to streamline your chores, so you might find time to weed the garden, raise more animals, or sit on the porch.
