Tired of picking up empties? Check out the Envirotub® Biodegradable Tub

At Rio, we realize that we are far from perfect. But I tell you what, we are very driven to resolve issues and fix things that don’t work…So we designed the 125lb. Envirotub® lick tub as a solution to the challenges ranchers were having.

  1. It is eight-sided for structural strength.
  2. It has a strong ribbed base, making it more robust.
  3. It stands only 12” high, making it much harder to tip over.
  4. It weighs only 125lb, so it’s a whole lot easier to handle. Perfect for ranch hands, ranch-wives, and kids who are involved with the ranching operation.

Best of all is as volumes increase on this cute little 125 pounder, we have been able to bring the price down! We are passing these savings on to our customers. The 125lb. tubs now cost less! It’s the time to give them a try!

The Envirotub® is part of our overall offer to time-conscious, cost-conscious cattlemen.   The Envirotub® lick tub is especially useful for large pastures, mountain terrain, and forested pastures.

Ice Cream Cone Tubs

This barrel is edible and biodegradable, known by ranchers as Envirotubs®, Bio-tubs, Edible tubs…and ice cream cone tubs. Why ice cream cones? Well, when you eat an ice cream cone, you eat the cone along with the ice cream. With the Envirotubs®, the cows eat the tub along with the supplements inside. Simple. Yet not near as messy as an ice cream cone!

How does the Envirotub® help you?  

  • They saves time - you only need to make one trip to put the tubs out
  • They reduces garbage
  • They allow more head per tub with a greater surface area
  • They eliminate those empty lick tubs that always blow away
  • AND they are environmentally friendly!

Range Rocket Refill Program

Sled-with-Tubs.pngConveniently, the 125lb. Envirotub can work hand-in-hand with the legendary Range Rocket Lick Sled that’s being used widely across ranch country. Here’s how the Refill Program works: after the product is eaten, you can refill the empty lick sled using two, 125lb. Envirotubs. They fit snuggly in the sled, which when pulled behind a 4-wheeler, you have 250lbs. of product to drag-and-drop. Whether you leave the entire sled all in one place or drop the refills individually in separate areas, the combinations is something ranchers are truly appreciating.

This fully biodegradable tub ensures you make only one trip ... to set the tubs out .. and never look back!

"Its the end of November and them cows are staying in good shape even with them big calves still at their side. Used some of those Envirotubs® and they sure work handy. Don't even have to worry about picking up empties when we use them." - Rancher from Sheridan, MT

The Envirotub® edible, biodegradable lick tubs are a efficient solution to dealing with all the empty plastic tubs and just plain work great for handling and are good for the environment to top it off.

There are situations where the Envirotub® is not a good fit; for example in a feedlot situation or very wet environments.
