I've used a nipple waterer for pigs previously. So very convenient and much better than buckets - but ours always had a mud puddle under the nipple. You may not have that problem with your sandy soil. We ended up putting paver blocks under the nipple until the pigs got big enough to flip them over, lol.

I’ll take a puddle over %#£€¥ pigs turning over their water nano seconds after I fill it. And with the barrel on the OUTSIDE they can’t drag it off and hide it. It would be hard to hide a blue barrel, but sometimes I couldn’t find their tub and they got watered in their mud hole. (Previous pigs)

Agree 10000% that the nipple barrel is better than the bucket! I don't even water their puddles anymore - they go to the pond every day!

Hawg Hut.

I saw a sign up on someone's gate years ago that I've been wanting to steal for my pigpens since: "Fort Snort"
