It's mid-morning and the rain clouds are approaching.  Your calves' starter and water pails sit outside the hutch.  You know most of the calves still have a little grain left in their pails.  You hate to throw it out and waste feed, but you know you can't leave it in the rain or you'll have an even bigger mess.  What do you do?

Here's a very simple solution:  Simply stack the water pail on top of the grain pail to block the rain.  This quick task will take just a couple of minutes as you go through the rows of hutches, but it can save you from wasting feed.
