Introduction of Installation Height and Quantity of Pig Cup Waterer


The installation quantity and height of stainless steel Pig Cup Waterer directly affect its use effect. When many pig farmers use stainless steel Pig Cup Waterer for the first time, they are confused about how many pigs can be used for one water bowl, and how high should the installation be. In this article, we will discuss Briefly.

1. The number of Pig Cup Waterer installed
Adequate drinking water can improve the feed conversion rate and improve the efficiency of pig farming. Insufficient water intake can lead to decreased feed intake and various intestinal diseases. The number of water bowls to be installed should be determined according to the number of pigs. Generally, pigs are raised in large pens, and a drinking bowl needs to be installed for every 8-10 pigs. If the number of pigs is more than 10, it is recommended to install 2 automatic drinking fountains. And the installation height is suitable.
2. Installation height of drinking bowl
There is no optimal height of the drinking bowl from the ground, because pigs are different in height and size. Two water bowls with different heights can be set up in the fattening pen. The piglets who have just entered the pen should use the lower one. -25 cm, the installation height of the big pig is 30-35 cm above the ground, and the sow water bowl is 40-60 cm above the ground. The above data is for reference only, and farmers can determine it according to the specific conditions of the pig house.
3. Advantages of Pig Cup Waterers
Compared with other drinking water equipment, the stainless steel drinking water bowl for pigs is more water-saving. It can meet the needs of pigs to drink enough water and reduce the amount of sewage in the pig house. The drinking water bowl for pigs has a large water storage capacity, and the pigs can clearly see the water to ensure sufficient drinking water; relevant tests have proved that Compared with ordinary water bowls, it can save more than 80% of water, reducing the pressure of sewage discharge and sewage treatment.
Pig Cup Waterer should not be installed in the corner of the pen. Because pigs like to defecate in the corner of the pen, if the Waterer is also installed here, it will speed up the spoilage of the manure. The ideal installation location should be close to the trough. The location of two Waterers in the same pen should not be too far apart. If it is too far, one of the drinking fountains will be out of service for a long time, and the sanitary conditions will be poor, which will pose a threat to the health of the pig herd.
