This is where the four pastures meet in the middle. We had a four ball watering tank installed. It had to be installed per the specifications of the NRCS to qualify for partial reimbursement. Konrad will have to add the actual specs but I'll give you what I think they are. The tank sits in a concrete pad that is about 10' x 10'. It is about 14" above the dirt level and was backfilled with several dump truck loads of gravel. Konrad added 2x6's over the tank to keep the goats from hopping from one pasture to the other. In the picture there are 4 boards, but we have since had to add 2 more. Those goats are quite nimble. Konrad insisted that the picture be taken from the bucket of the tractor, fully raised of course, and who do you think got nominated for that job? Yes, he even tried to get me to stand up! Anyways, that's all I know about the tank.
