    We use them for COWS, BULLS AND CALFS. One of the best decision we have made at kt2Ranch. It’s February in Colorado, I have not touched a water hose all winter. We buy steers for finishing and they always learn within a few days. We have never had any get sick. We will be adding more DRINKING POST this spring.

    We have had the drinking post waterer for many years. It has required very little attention. We have replaced several paddles and that is it for parts. It has not been apart for any reason . It gets down to 25 below and is windy here in Vermont. Ocassionally we have had to remove ice around the rim on the very coldest of days which is quite easy with a kettle of hot water. There is no other product/system that I am aware of that would provide water for our cattle year round as reliably as The Drinking Post Waterer.

    ABSOLUTELY love this system. Ease of install was a plus. I live in north east Missouri and we have some really cold winters but we have had no issues. We have a small cattle herd and I have been telling everyone about this system. Have even considered trying to sell these waterers in my area because nobody in this area sells them and there are a lot of cattle and horse people in the area. Thanks for making a great product.

    Installed four years ago, and though there have been little things go wrong, (broken paddle), we never want to go back to windy winter days where we would chop the ice in the water trough, fill, then drain the hose. I have had to pull the top out several time, to winterise, and today pulled, as the valve was not shutting off. Took up to the shop, and used compressed air to blow everything off, disassemble clean, and reassemble and now no leaks. This has been a very trouble free tool, saves time, water is always available, and clean. Of great import to me is MADE IN USA, and I have called once when I was having trouble with the reinstallation of the rod actuator, and was talked through the problem, so most impressed with the customer service. We are in Central Wa St. up in the foothills of the Cascade mountains, 2070 feet, and hot summers, cold winters, always works. In four years, I have only spent a couple hours in service time replacing small parts, and the recent valve r&r, so pretty trouble free. We buried four feet deep, and before final instillation, of the unit, flush pipe so there is no debris to plug the screen. I used this method to install: Using pipe dope, thread a galvanized or brass 3/4 street ell onto the bottom of the drinking post, install a 3/4 PVC threaded by slip male coupler, then glue pvc pipe into coupler then glue to supply. This allows you to set the unit flat and level and to the height you want, then shovel some gravel in then fill around post, and when it is solid fill the rest of the trench. Hope this helps on the installation. Great cottage industry, hartly recommend them.

    One word “Ultimate” So true. The watering post is the “ultimate” water system for livestock. Easy installation, with little, to no maintenance afterward. I may test and clean the bowl before any animals are put in the pasture and then never have to worry about algae, lingering mosquitoes, or wasps that swarm a trough or bowl of water. The water my animals get is always fresh. Highly recommended.

    We live in central MS. It is hot and humid here this time of year. No way to keep traditional open water sources from being stagnant, hot, and full of algae and mosquito larvae. The drinking posts solved that and have worked flawlessly during the summer. We had our coldest winter in years. The drinking posts worked like a charm no busting ice or running extension cords to heaters. Only problem was when it got into low teens for a week or so they would get some ice accumulation as the bowl wouldn’t completely drain quick enough. Easy enough to run the water by hand a few minutes and rake the ice out. Never got to a point where animal’s didn’t have water. We have goats and stocker calves that get rotated through pastures. Was a little worried if the yearling calves would be to rough and break the goat paddle’s on the valves. So far it’s been no problem at all.
