Watering your sheep has never been easier.

The Drinking Post sheep waterer was specially designed with sheep in mind! We have a specialized paddle to help sheep learn the Drinking Post quickly and use it with ease! The Drinking Post provides the freshest, cleanest water with absolutely no effort on your part! Just set it and forget it (and rest assured that you’re providing your sheep with the best care possible)!

The Drinking Post for Sheep

Fresh, clean, and cool water

  • Water stays at a constant temp of 50 F/10 C (consistent water temp is a HUGE motivator for your sheep to drink more water).
  • The bowl fills with fresh water every time your sheep pushes the paddle.
  • After they’re done, all the water drains away, so there’s never any standing water.
  • No standing water means no freezing or algae growth!

No Electricity Required!

  • The Drinking Post functions and installs like a frost-free hydrant.
  • There is a stop-and-drain valve at the base of the Post, which allows the unit to fill and drain with each use.
  • When the animal is done drinking, they release the paddle and all the water in the unit drains completely.
  • All the water fills and drains below the frostline, leaving the unit completely empty (there’s no water in there to freeze!).
  • This unique design doesn’t require any heaters, insulation, or concrete pads.

Versatile Design

  • Each Drinking Post can handle up to 25 animals. More than 25 animals in a lot? Just install additional Posts!
  • There is no minimum head count, the Drinking Post will stay frost-free even with no animals using it. This is great for fluctuating herd sizes and rotational grazing!
  • Since all the water drains below the frostline after each use, the Post can sit unused for long periods of time. You don’t have to do anything to prepare your Post to sit unused, just simply stop using it.

Specialized Paddle for Sheep!

  • Sheep will use our Livestock Riser Block Attachment. If you order the Drinking Post for Sheep, the correct paddle attachment will be included.
  • The sheep paddle attachment is a weighted block that attaches to the standard flat paddle.
  • This attachment allows the sheep to butt the paddle forward with their head, which plays on their natural head-butting tendencies.
  • With this specialized attachment, training is quick and easy! Check out our Training Guide for more info.

Health Benefits

Nothing has greater influence on the well being of livestock than water intake. To maximize water intake is to ensure uninhibited access to clean fresh water.

Summer Benefits

Water intake can double during the summer months. When a horse is working hard and sweating it can lose 5-10% of its body weight that needs to be replenished.

Winter Benefits

Providing livestock quality water during the winter can be challenging in most climates. As in any other season, animals need adequate water intake to maintain health.
