This is a durable stainless steel flipping drinker. This water trough can be easily mounted to a wall to provide fresh water on a constant basis to animals while housed. We use a fast-fill Hansen max flow valve filling at 570 litres per minute maintaining a constant water level. The ballcock is mounted on the frame in this tank, and the tank pivots around it when flipping.
A common problem with drinking tanks in houses is water being fouled. Cleaning out tanks can often be an arduous task but with the flipping drinker, contents can be simply dumped by a quick flick over of the tank, which is on a pivot. This 1.25-meter flipping drinker holds 80 Litres. The frame is 62cm in width.
This water tank is available in 1.25m or 2m lengths.

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.

“Good facilities allow farmers to expand production and incomes and add to the asset value of the farm. They also lead to a better quality of life for the farm family by reducing the workload and the drudgery. In many cases, particularly on dairy farms, buildings pay for themselves over a 7-10 year period. This is especially true when capital grant and tax savings are available.”
