Jordan field

Upgrade from boggy waterhole to trough

Posted in Farm on Thursday 31st October 2019 at 4:25pm

One of our fields has several springs in it which we have collected and now use for our drinking water which is delivered around the houses, buildings and water troughs on the farm by our hydram. We have always used the overflow from the collection tank to allow our cattle to drink water in the corner of this field. We felt it was time to fit a water trough in this field now which ensures a plentiful supply of clean water for the cattle but also reduces any erosion of the soil around the stream and silt run off from cattle paddling around the soggy area.
