The importance of drinking water quality is often underestimated, even though it is the most crucial nutrient for animals. Water is a necessity for vital functions such as digestion, growth, body temperature and transporting nutrients and waste products in and from the body. This is why the daily water intake of pigs is double that of their feed intake.
Consequently, high quality drinking water is indispensable to maintain the animals’ health and ensure optimal development. An optimal feed intake and efficient requires clean and tasty drinking water.
Sufficient, clean, healthy and reliable drinking water, that’s what a proper water supply must provide. Once this drinking water enters your farm, it is important that all animals always have sufficient access to it. In addition, the water must be clean, which means: clear, colourless and odourless. It also must not contain excess or harmful substances and must be free of bacteria and other harmful micro-organisms. Finally, it is important to regularly verify these values, to ensure that your water is and remains reliable.
The first step is to verify the quality of inbound drinking water (physical, chemical and microbial values) and the pipe work inside the stable (physical: diameter, material, dead angles, etc.). Once both parameters meet the basic criteria, HyCare can be implemented.
After entering the stable, the water subdivides to the individual units and drinking points for the animals. The temperature inside the stable enables harmful bacteria to prosper inside a biofilm (such as E. coli, salmonella, clostridium, streptococcus, staphylococcus, campylobacter, etc.). This allows bacteria to spread throughout the company, which is exactly why all pipes are thoroughly cleaned when working with HyCare. Once this is done, a proven method is used to ensure that the drinking water remains low in pathogens, clean and tasteful.
The resolute approach to drinking water pipes and the quality of the water itself results in optimum drinking water quality for healthy animals. After all, it is not only important to make the living environment of the animals germ-free after every round, we must also ensure that they always have clean drinking water.
