Poultry Drinking Water

Modern poultry farming is heavily influenced by what is called optimal feed conversion rate (FCR). Research has highlighted that water is the single most important impact variable affecting positive conversion rates for broilers.

If the birds don’t drink enough water, weight gain will be slow. And, if the water doesn’t taste good, they won’t drink it.

Dissolved metals like iron and manganese in the water can give a bitter taste and off odour which decreases consumption by the birds. Signs of this can be birds fussing around the drinkers or wet litter under the drinkers. These dissolved metals also increase the likelihood of biofilm forming in drinking lines – harbouring bacteria and other pathogens. Biofilm formation in drinking pipework is also a contributory factor to blocked drinkers.

This is why the Poultry sector, including duck, turkey, and chicken farmers, is one of the fastest agricultural sectors adopting chlorine dioxide for water treatment protocols – The same product approved for human drinking water consumption.

It is a strong industry forecast that chlorine dioxide water treatment approaches will overtake outdated chlorine practices completely.

Treatment of drinking water with chlorine dioxide is proven to reduce pathogens, eliminate biofilm, improve taste, improve gut health, reduce morbidity and mortality and improve feed conversion rate.

No more blocked drinkers or fussing around the drinkers.

Suitable Shock Dose Treatments for contaminated water supplies. In a poultry farm setting, contaminated water supplies can easily escalate as birds share the same water dispensary units.

With a range of specialised products including ZyDox®, DiPerox or ExStinkt, we can treat dam and bore water as well as potable and rainwater supplies.

Every farm site is different. That’s why we offer dispensing solutions that are flexible – Basic and manual right up to fully automated and controlled systems.

Not sure if your water is up to scratch? That’s ok. We offer our clients water testing using our inhouse water testing facilities so that we can help you assess onsite water quality.

Solutions to treat chicken house for optimal bird health.

Solutions to treat common bird respiratory diseases prone as reported by users.

Solutions to disinfecting hatcheries to prevent food spoiling and bacteria outbreaks.
