Providing water from buckets or troughs can lead to circumstances where an animal will not take in enough water because the water has become heated throughout the day and too warm for the animals liking. Buckets are especially prone to this due to the small amount of water that needs to heat up for this to happen.
Many assume that any type of ‘fresh or natural’ source of water is by its very nature clean and healthy. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Stagnant or algae ridden water can produce a tainted taste to the water; which will deter animals from drinking their fill during the hot summer months.
By utilizing the Drinking Post Waterer you can avoid these issues and effortlessly enjoy the benefits of never having any standing water. This will ensure there is no chance of water contamination due to:
- Bird feces and other contaminants falling in water
- Small rodents drowning in the water supply
- Algae build up
Knowing your horse, cattle, and livestock ALWAYS have cool water available during the hottest summer months will ensure your animals are drinking enough water to stay hydrated and promote optimum health and wellness.
