Water Treatment

Introduction To Livestock Water Treatment

Livestock water treatment is an important topic to discuss for livestock producers. There are many different methods livestock producers can use to keep their livestock drinking water safe and healthy. This article will discuss three of the most common treatments that you may want to consider using on your farm.

1) Chlorination

Chlorination is the process of adding chlorine to livestock drinking water. There are several ways livestock producers can chlorinate their livestock water, including using liquid sodium hypochlorite, compressed gas cylinders, or dry calcium hypochlorite tablets.

2) UV light

Ultraviolet (UV) light water treatment is becoming increasingly popular. UV light livestock treatment works by passing livestock drinking water through a quartz sleeve containing ultraviolet lamps to kill harmful bacteria and viruses in the livestock drinking water. This method of livestock treatment can also be used on well-water sources that are not chlorinated, which makes it an extremely effective treatment method.

3) Ozonation

Ozonation is the livestock water treatment of choice for many livestock producers. Ozonation livestock treatment involves pumping livestock drinking water through an ozone generator to produce pure oxygen that will dissolve into livestock drinking water and kill harmful bacteria, viruses, and parasites in livestock drinking water before reaching animals.
