Drinking water in a livestock farm has to be potable and free from harmful substances. Water quality should be monitored before distribution, in order to guarantee the absence of microbiological contamination and ensure that the respective physical and chemical properties are suited to the specific characteristics of each farm. Equipment maintenance should also be considered. Records of all analytical tests performed, test results, treatment and maintenance should be kept.
Once the safety of drinking water has been ensured, it is important to optimise chemical properties, in order to improve zootechnical performance. In this sense, DIN, SA provides pH control services and products for swine and poultry.
Drinking water solutions
1. Prior study
Technical survey and identification of critical aspects at livestock farms;
Collection and testing of water samples by an accredited laboratory.
2. Technical report
Identification of possible problems and corrective measures;
Presentation of a protocol and issuing of recommendations concerning adequate products and dosages.
Provision of support with the implementation of the solutions proposed and validation of the corresponding results.
