Water is important for all animals as it is used for the regulation of body temperature, growth, milk production, digestion and metabolism of feed, as well as transport of nutrients and waste products in the body.
Water quality is very important to ensure good animal health. Contamination of the water source, the water pipes, or drinking troughs or nipples put animals at risk of infection and reduce the effectiveness of medicines distributed through the drinking water. Regularly and effectively disinfecting your water systems can mitigate these risks. It is advisable to check your water quality on a regular basis both from the source as well as from the drinkers.
