Cow Shower

Clay McQuiddy, Mountain Grove, Mo., rigged an inexpensive cow shower for his pastures. He taped a 3/4-inch plastic polypipe to a 3/16-inch cable that loops over the metal A-frames to suspend the pipe. The nozzles were purchased out of a farm catalog. There are moveable stakes in the pastures that the A-frames attach to. To supply water, extension hoses run from the well system and hook into the polypipes. Clay moves the shower to a new location daily.
