need ideas for a feed trough tough enough for 3 fair size hogs #200's We have been just throwing the food over the fence. (mostly bread) but with all the rain the paddock is mostly 2 foot deep of mud and we must be waisting alot of food. I can attach something to the pen if neccessary.

Thanks for the replies. I like the idea about the tire because with all this mud this summer I would have a hard time anchoring it to the ground. I could hang the plywood to the side of the pen. Plus I built the pen on beams so i can relocate the pen elsewhere every year.

For the water I went to the tractor supply store and bought a plastic automatic waterer and hung it on the outside of the pen and cut a triangle shaped hole above it big enough for the pig to get his head through. works great!!
