Increases Profits in Dairy Farms & Cattle

Contamination Sources Water System Contamination

  • E.COLI, parasites, viruses and other biological contaminants are introduced by cow saliva and feces
  • ALGAE, fungus, spores and other contaminants are introduced by well water
  • IRON BACTERIA, algae and other ground water contaminants are introduced via well water
  • ALL COMBINE and bacteria incubate to produce a foul smelling, unsafe, scummy, unpalatable livestock water
  • GROUND WATER contamination can occur from collapsed sewage ponds Chlorination

An essential part of a total herd health management program. Provides sanitized water throughout the entire water system from well to water troughs that eliminates waterborne:

  • E.coli bacteria infection
  • Intestinal parasites
  • Pathogenic bacteria and virus
  • Organic scums, algae, and iron slimes
  • Scouring effects of high sulphates and nitrates

Lowers bacteria count to milk Provides safe, palatable water for healthier animals drinking more water resulting in:

  • Increased milk production
  • Better feed conversion
  • Reduction of scour incidents
  • Increased conception rate
  • Reduces worms and parasites and intestinal infection
  • Lower stress levels
  • Reduced mold and toxic reaction in digestive tract
  • Reduced medication and drug bills

Further Research

Milk production, bacteria count in milk, conception rates, parasites and disease problems in dairy cattle can be caused by many factors. One of the most overlooked sources of these problems is in the water supply that the animals drink from. Open watering systems are easily contaminated and actually can support and incubate E. coli and other dangerous and harmful bacteria spreading disease throughout the entire herd. Animals drinking such contaminated water must fight and overcome these problems and reduce their natural immunity to fight off problems from other sources.

The cornerstone of human and animal health is safe water. Without safe water, total disease control is impossible. Because chlorine kills bacteria and provides a residual that prevents recontamination, it is the world's most widely used water purification chemical.

In order to turn a profit in agriculture, it is absolutely essential that the highest levels of production be attained. Dairy cows drinking contaminated unpalatable water cannot produce at maximum levels.

  • Provides sanitized water for clean up
  • Keeps entire water system from plugging or overflowing from iron fouling
  • Easiest, user-operated chlorinator available
  • Uses easy-to-handle EPA registered chlorine pellets
  • Fully adjustable
