Water system for mob grazing

We are currently in the midst of a major water infrastructure upgrade.  The key to mob grazing is having a good supply of cattle drinking water available in every paddock – which is approximately every 5 acres or less.

First we lay 1-1/4″ black PE Pipe with our subsoiler.  Here’s a video of that being done.

Then we insert tees in strategic locations along that water line.  Here’s some photos of what that looks like:

 Then we connect a 50′ hose and portable tank that can be seen in this video.
