Water Saving Technologies
Automatic Poultry Waterer (Waterbowl)
Adopting automatic poultry drinking bowls can reduce drinking water waste by 10%-25% compared to traditional duck-peck waterer. Water flow speed control also has significant impact on water saving: when water speed is 2080ml per minute, 23% of water is wasted, whereas when the speed is 650ml per minute only 8.6% is wasted.
Average consumption for dry feeders with nipple waterers is 1.63 gallons per pig-day while wet/dry feeders use only 1.35 gal/pig-day. This represents a reduction in water consumption of 17.2%.
