With holes drilled in the bottom they would work, wouldn't want to move them. Just saying!!A farm manager I know asked if someone he knew could pick up our old tubs. He said they were using them with disabled children doing different things. I said heck yea, he came and picked up all that would fit on a 20’ trailer. Through someone else I was told that they were talking them to Colorado and selling them for $5 each to maryjane growers. I said well I guess he got me once.
Check your local Craig's List or facebook marketplace. They are always some to be found, usually $2-5 around here if you have to buy them!I neverbought a protein tub, in 60 yrs of having cattle, but I've gotten a few empty tubs, and they've been pretty doggone handy for mixing potting mix for tree seedlings, etc. Can see that theyd be great for doing a mass planting of pecans/acorns, etc., to transplant or pot-up in year Two.
Have used 'em as small water tanks in the barnlot.
Wouldn't mind getting my hands on a few more.
