I have a waterer in the pasture and love it. Before that I had a trough and the water always seemed stagnent and it was a pain to fill and keep clean. They didn't drink as much of hot stagnant water. Yoiu can get a meter to see how much they are drinking. I use Nelson waterers and if installed properly they are pretty reliable. Had 1 overflow in 9 yrs. And never froze at 30 below
For stalls I don't mind buckets and use a heated busket in the winter so no ice to break.
