Bottom-Heavy Calf Feeder (Ray E. Watkins Jr.)

Benjie Shrock, Stanberry, Missouri, made a simple calf feeder from two buckets. Fill the first bucket 2/3 full with gravel. Cut the bottom third off the second bucket and push it down into the first. This makes a simple, bottom-heavy trough calves won't tip over.
