    Big bulls and momma cows can easily drink more than 20 gallons a day in the summer. I've seen some figures say closer to 30.

    Last summer when my wife planted a new tree and we had no rain, I used the bucket to water it. Going up and down a hill most of the water sloshed out.

    Any materials around to either make a cover to redirect the slosh back in, or for baffels to cut down on slosh?

    If I owned the property around the creek, yea it would, I can use the road to the creek. But I understand the reason to question

    I'm just messin' with you. I knew there was a reason, but I thought it was funny that no one asked why the cattle couldn't go to the creek.
    I've hauled concrete in my bucket- you have got to go real slow not to spill a lot of it.
