Here’s a great use for a five gallon bucket: A pig nipple waterer! A pig nipple waterer is comparable to the kind of device little pet hamsters drink from, but designed for a much larger animal. These devices are easy to attach to a bucket, making them very easy to use. A pig nipple water can have advantages over simply giving the pigs a trough do drink water from, the pigs will make less of a mess and you may not need as much space.
Make sure to place the pig nipple at a comfortable height for your pigs, as we did here above. A good pig nipple we use is this stainless steal one.
