Here at Hydrosmart, we have years of experience providing innovative, scientific solutions for water treatment to Australia’s livestock industry. The importance of water to livestock management cannot be overstated, as this critical element determines the health and well-being of animals, and affects their feed conversion, which is a measure of the efficiency of livestock feed.
What is Feed Conversion?
A feed conversion ratio indicates the efficiency with which an animal converts its feed into increased body mass. Whether you raise cows, goats, or fish in an aquaponics farm, it is important to know whether you are getting the desired results for the feed that you are investing in for the animals.
How Does Water Treatment Improve Feed Conversion?
One of the best ways to improve the feed conversion ratio of livestock is to improve water quality. Here’s how Hydrosmart systems improve efficiency.
Less Reliance on Water Softening Chemicals
Our systems use zero chemicals and acid to soften water. The system uses resonant frequencies to slowly soften scale and mineral build-up in irrigation pipes and completely removes it over time. This reduces water wastage significantly and allows even kilometres of piping to function as desired, without the use of chemicals which can compromise your animals softer water enables better uptake of nutrient in the microbiome of the gut.
Hydrosmart’s anti corrosion system is extremely effective at dissolving minerals in highly mineralised water, even when water quality is highly compromised. The minerals are made bio-available for plant life when you use an anti corrosion system. With water corrosion in your pipes eliminated, your livestock and farm have access to clean, safe water at all times.
Reduced Water Salinity
With groundwater salinity increasing each year, Hydrosmart systems are the perfect way to resolve the problem. By decreasing the potency of salt water in groundwater, resonant frequency systems allow Australia’s livestock industry to expand and thrive on land where water salinity would be considered too toxic for use.
In piggery and poultry settings, where the breakdown of biomass is important for hygiene and odour prevention, water treated using Hydrosmart, is the superior choice for primary and secondary wastewater storage and drink water. Soft water facilitates bacterial activity, which breaks down organic matter and protects the farm, animals, and the environment.
