Chlorination:
Increases Profits in Hog Operations

Contamination Sources Water System Contamination

  • E.COLI, parasites, viruses and other biological contaminants are introduced by hog saliva and feces
  • ALGAE, fungus, spores and other contaminants are introduced by air
  • 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

Watering Nipples Contamination

  • Become bacterially contaminated by hog saliva
  • Become plugged by iron bacteria, slimes, algae
  • Incubate bacterial growth inside

GROUND WATER contamination can occur suddenly and without warning from many sources

Deep Well Chlorination

An essential part of a total disease control program prevents water-borne:

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

Provides safe, palatable water for healthier animals drinking more water.

Healthier Breeding Stock

  • Reduced or eliminated scours
  • Better feed conversion
  • Better conception rates
  • Increased litter size
  • Sows give more and better milk
  • Reduced intestinal worms and intestinal tract disorders
  • Lowers medication drug bills
  • Reduced medication and drug bills

Healthier Feeders

  • Reduced or eliminated scours
  • Stronger, healthier pigs at birth
  • Less setback during weaning
  • Faster weight gains
  • Less death loss
  • Less stress
  • Increases feeder production by up to 20%

Further Research

Scours, weaning setbacks, low conception rates, parasites and disease problems in hogs can be caused by many factors. One of the most often 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 E.coli and other dangerous and harmful bacteriaspreading disease throughout an 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. Hogs drinking contaminated unpalatable water cannot produce at maximum levels.

Benefits and Features

  • Provides healthier hogs
  • Prevents spread of water-borne diseases and parasites
  • Provides bacteria-free water for clean up
  • Prevents water recontamination
  • Keeps entire water system, watering cups and watering nipples from iron fouling
  • Easiest, user-operated chlorinator available
  • Uses easy-to-handle EPA registered chlorine pellets
  • Fully adjustable
