Using the Rain

Our use of rain barrels may not be very pretty, but it is practical.

Rain barrels and bathtubs are used to collect rainwater from gutters on the barns.

We collect rain that falls off the barn roof in the barrels and bathtubs so we don’t have to pump as much water for the animals around the show barn.

The water collection is accessible by the cows on the one side of the barn, and the newly weaned heifers and bulls on the other side.
