Add Trough to Save Trips

I wanted to reduce the labor involved in bucketing cement to set iron posts in my feedlot. I cut off the ends of a 15-gallon barrel and then cut the barrel in half. A couple of flat iron hooks welded onto one end of the half barrel fit over the stabilizing bar on the bottom of my portable cement mixer. It’s a DIY cement trough!
