Product Description

Aquamat Pasture Pump



Operating Principle:

While pushing the animal activates a diaphragm drawing the water through the tube of the Aquamat pasture pump. A non-return valve prevents the pump from running dry. Releasing the mechanism, the water flows into the small bowl under the rush lever.

With its rewarding inclined bowl, it’s natural for the animals to learn to push the lever with their muzzle when they want to drink the water from the back of the bowl.

The Aquamat Pasture Pump mechanism is very light to operate, which makes it also suitable for horses and calves from 6 months onwards. For nursing cows followed by their young, a special model is available featuring a small built-in bowl next to the trough allowing the calf and adult to drink simultaneously. The consumption of water and fibrous food by an unweaned calf enhances rumen fermentation, which in turn helps to develop its rumen.

Aquamat Pasture Pump Learning Process:

When starting up a pasture pump, you always have to pump the water to help the animals find the water more easily.

To protect the pump and help the animals learn, you can install barriers next to and behind the pump to guide their access to it from the front.

Water plays a key role in milk production, control of body temperature and many other body functions in dairy cattle. Water intake, availability and quality are often overlooked. Generally, cows only drink in short bouts (7-12 times a day) during which they consume a total of between 10 to 20 litres of water.
As a rule of thumb with beef cattle, consumption will range from 1 gallon per 100 pounds of body weight during cold weather to nearly 2 gallons per 100 pounds of body during the hottest weather. Lactating cows require nearly twice as much water compared to dry cows.
