Krentz Pipeline and Trough Project

Well-spaced, reliable water helps to create more flexible options for the rancher to rotate cattle over the ranch.  Good water distribution allows for more even use of the grasses when the cattle are in the pasture.  The Krentz Ranch took advantage of their already existing livestock pipeline and a three way pasture fence corner, to provide more water for the livestock and wildlife on their ranch.  302 feet of buried 1 ¼” high density black plastic pipeline was installed along with three troughs which added up to 2,807 gallons of drinking water altogether.  This water will be available all year round which means that it will also benefit the local wildlife, including antelope.  All of the troughs are installed with wildlife escape ramps so that small species, including insects, can swim out if they accidentally fall in.  Because of grant monies, the MBG covered 50% of the cost with the Krentz Ranch paying for the other 50%.
