Why Should You Get A Drinking Water Post?

Caring for horses, cattle, and livestock during the winter can be a difficult task, with the main goal of ensuring animals remain healthy. In the winter, as in any other season, animals need a combination of nutrients to remain healthy. Energy derived from feed and the resulting body heat is very important for survival. If any animal is not consuming enough water, it will eat less than it would otherwise.

There are a number or reasons an animal will not consume an adequate amount of water during winter months, the most common being:

• Water provided is too cold to drink comfortably.
• A trough or bucket is completely frozen over.
• Water is too hot due to a malfunctioning or improperly adjusted
water heating device.

As we’ve all heard before, “You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink”, and if water is too cold it will not drink enough. This is never more true than in winter months. It’s well documented that water should be at least 40°F. Studies show that increasing water temperature from just above freezing (icy or frozen buckets or troughs) to 40°- 65°F, will increase the amount of water consumed by 40%.
