Quail and Wildlife Waterer

Circle has over 100 of these small-animal waterers.  They are made by Surber Tank Company, Odessa, Texas.  The internal valve is 3/4,” brass.  It holds about 3 gallons.  The tank must be maintained very full even though animals can walk down the ramp: quail prefer it full.

Weak points are light weight and the pvc connections: the appliance must be protected from herds when cattle are present.  We do this by surrounding the tank with a cattle panel when the herd is present for a short grazing stay.
