Water Systems


Because we lease all of our land at Greener Pastures Ranching, we are often trying to come up with innovative ways to bring water to our many paddocks for the cattle. All of the water systems on this page have been or are currently in use on our ranch.

The 'Turkey's Nest' - An elevated water reserve that works with gravity flow

If you are looking for a use for that old tractor tire that is sitting out in a field somewhere, this may be an economical trough for you. This tire trough also works on a gravity flow system and doesn't require a pump to operate.

The Rock Picker - We get asked questions about our solar water rock pickers all of the time. This is it. By using old rock pickers we've been able to make mobile troughs that are pulled by the hitch on our truck. Water is pumped from a nearby dugout using solar power.
