Benefits of Energy-Efficient Livestock Waterers
Most of the energy used by a livestock watering system is to keep water from freezing during the colder months. By making upgrades to your systems (like adding insulation around an automatic waterer or tank), you can help curb heat loss and reduce your energy costs.
Benefits of energy-efficient livestock watering systems include:
- Profitability — upgrading to efficient models can lead to long-term, reduced energy costs, freeing up cash to reinvest into your farm
- Comfort — energy- efficient equipment improves the comfort of your livestock
- Maintenance Time — newer equipment can reduce maintenance time and costs by extending the lifespan of your equipment
- Safety — if leaks around water systems are eliminated, there will be fewer safety hazards such as ice and mud
