    You would not believe what I found around the farm, a cup waterer left by the old home owner. It is connected to a 55 gallon plastic drum. We filled it with water showed, showed them how to do it several times but the pigs are not getting it! Will they catch on in a few days? Lynn

    Drop some corn in the cup-it won't take them long to figure it out. Daryll in NW FLA

    If they are thirsty and thats their only water, they will drink from the cup. Does it have a float, or do they need to push on the valve to let water into the cup.. How cold does it get where you are?
