Feed Trough 2006
We needed a easy way
to feed the cattle. It needed to be solid, dry and accessable for both
feed truck and cattle. This is what we came up with.
Here the concrete work is
drying, the wooden boards are yet to be placed into the steel channels.
This is the finshed form, the black thing in the fore ground is the
water trough. This is the side the cattle will be standing on.
The 2x4 board raises the concrete for the manger so the cattle don't
need to reach all the way down to where they stand.
The board is held in place for the concrete pour by a bolt welded to
the post. It gets cut off after the form is removed.
The outside wall of the manger is held in place by a pipe welded to the
upright post, which is buried in the concrete.
This is what it looks like with concrete, and no boards.
This is what the cattle will be seeing and standing on.
Here they are using it.
This is after two years of use.
