A Water Conditioning Case Study: the Chaplin Brothers
Here, Hydrosmart looks at a case study to see what effect the Hydrosmart hard water treatment can have on cattle farms. The Chaplin brothers of Tintinara, South Australia, had been using hard bore water for their cattle until deciding to try our hard water conditioner. So, what changed and how long did these changes take to come into effect? We’ll start by exploring what bore water is and why it is necessary to improve it.
Cattle and Hard Bore Water
Water is the most essential nutritional requirement of cattle. As such, cattle need an adequate and accessible supply of fresh water to facilitate their regular physical and chemical processes of the body. Aside from simply not having enough water, the number one problem faced when providing cattle with drinking water is the presence of a high level of dissolved solids in hard bore water. An effective hard water conditioner can tackle both of those issues.
The Chaplin Brothers
Daniel Chaplin and his brother, Allan, run farms in Tintinara. Between them, they purchased eight Hydrosmart units in December 2021. Within a matter of a few short weeks, they reported seeing positive change. The most notable of which was feeding lactating mothers and calves on full lucerne in conjunction with water. Prior to installing our units, Danny reported he would see scouring and stock dehydration with attendant health and weight issues. A few weeks after installation, he says both cows and calves were gaining weight and doing well. The animals were eating the same feed as before; the only change was the introduction of Hydrosmart treated water.
Further Benefits of Electronically Treated Water
The Chaplin brother also saw positive changes in the water supply itself. Where they usually had to constantly perform manual scale removal from supply lines, they now have no such issues. Pipe blockages have not occurred at all since installing our units.
