Thanks All for input. Last summer I installed some yard hydrants in the cattle pens, hoping to put on some electric heated waterers. What came as shock to me was, nobody makes a waterer that fits over a hydrant. Ended up building my own. So far they have worked great, and it has been down to -16 F. I use two standard 100 wt light bulbs. Besides that they were a lot cheaper to build then to buy. I got four for less then I would have to pay for one Richie, that would not fit over a hydrant.Gunner said:

What did you use for insulation?
Anchor it/protection against cattle rubbing?
