It is no secret that a constant supply of clean, fresh water will greatly improve livestock production. Studies have shown higher rates of average daily gain and improved overall animal health when a clean and reliable water source is available.
Sometimes a picture says a thousand words. These photos were taken early one January morning in South Dakota. The outside temperature was -12 and the water temperature was 53!
When purchasing a watering system, make sure to choose one that is appropriate for the type of livestock you have, will accommodate the number of head, and is suitable for your climate.
Many systems today, are energy-free and made from rugged, high-impact resistant polyurethane.
Find a system that will provide consistent water temperature throughout the year and energy efficient with an enclosed baffle design that protects valve from freezing.
