Farmer-Built Tough Trough

My new troughs are made of 36-inch drain pipe cut in half. The one in the barn is installed with 6-inch wood screws, flat washers, and eight cinder blocks to provide height. End caps are made from 2×6-inch oak boards. The other half is outdoors. I put treated decking boards around that half to keep it stable and to prevent the cattle from pushing on it.
