Watering Pigs the Easy Way
Bar-Bar-A has been successfully watering livestock for the easy way for over 25 years. In 2019 we rolled-out our automatic hog waterer, designed for the abuse that pigs are famous for on all equipment they use. Pigs learn quickly and have ready access to constant fresh water. One unit will water up to 30 head of animals. Whether a small herd or just a lone pig, Bar-Bar- A will work for you.
Pigs Need Quality Liquid
Whether from Mom or Bar-Bar-A the Results are the Same. Like Mother’s Milk the Milk/Water Temperature is the same in the Summer or the Winter.
Water Temperature in the Summer
Hot standing water in traditional automatic pig waterers, tanks, or buckets limits water consumption. Decreased water consumption results in less production and health for your animals. The Bar-Bar-A produces fresh summertime water at a cool temperature. All this because the source water comes from underground water lines and when your pig finishes drinking the water drains back into the ground, leaving an empty bowl. (See how it works)This means more water consumption and healthier hogs.
Water Temperature in the Winter
In winter, hogs are challenged with proper hydration because of the icy, frigid standing water exposed to winter air. Because the source water for our units comes from a buried water line, the water is much warmer and easy to drink. In the winter, electrically heated water can be heated so warm that the water is not at comfortable temperature for consumption. The Bar-Bar- A is not limited by these factors.
Pigs Want Fresh Water Too!
Keeping your hogs properly hydrated is important. With traditional water tanks and other automatic livestock waterers on the market, water is exposed to heat, cold, and algae; with birds and rodents having free access. In the summertime standing water collects heat from the hot sun and limits water consumption. The same is true in the winter with the winter air turning water to frigid temperatures. Bar-Bar-A solves the problem of undesirable hot or cold standing water by draining away the remaining water after every drink. The hog waterer drinker is clean and safe. Palatable water is as important to animals as it is to humans.
Training Pigs to Drink
Hogs learn quickly to use the hog waterer drinker/pig waterer drinker . For animals needing a little help learning the Bar-Bar-Bar-A hog waterer drinker can be set for training mode (in the warmer seasons). Once in training mode, the pig waterer drinker unit will retain water in the bowl. When the process is learned the hog waterer drinker unit may be reset to drain mode.
Meat Production and Proper Hydration
For meat production proper hydration is a must. Water enhances faster weight gain and better quality meat. Your pig’s overall health is connected to proper water intake. In addition, with less time chopping ice or cleaning algae your chore load will be reduced considerably; and without electricity your profit margin will increase.
Average Water Intake
Finishing hogs will consume between 3 and 5 gallons of water per day from the hog waterer drinker and growers from 2 and 3 gallons. The amount consumed will depend upon the size of the animal and the moisture content of the feed consumed. Good water consumption is an indicator of good health.
