Water and Drinking Systems
Nipple Bar Troughs
Our nipple bar troughs as seen pictured below have been specifically designed, as all our products are, to conform with Freedom Food specifications. They are easily installed and height adjustable so you can raise them as your animals grow.
They have proved to be very effective and are now the preferred drinker by many farmers as our system reduces water wastage, saves straw, increases water intake and in turn improves the growth rates, especially in younger pigs.
When ordering your nipple bar troughs and deciding how many you may require Freedom Foods recommend 10 pigs per nipple. Units are available with 2 to 15 nipples.
Nipple bar troughs are suitable for use with tents. They can be put either inside the tent or outside if you have external hurdles.
All nipple bar troughs are stainless steel and the tent version has eight outlets and is fitted with an anti-cracking frost protection system. A 500mm upright pipe is standard for outdoor use.
The indoor nipple bar troughs are stainless steel and come in various sizes, providing 2 to 15 spaces and have the under trough plus 1m upright pipe as standard.
We also offer a variety of nipples to fit the drinker bars, vertical or bite nipple options are available. Our standard size nipple is 1/2″ but they are also available in 3/8″ and 3/4″.
Water Drinking Option For Tents
Stainless Steel Nipple Bar Troughs – 8 Space.
Nipple bar troughs are suitable for using in tents. They can be put either inside the tent or outside if you have external hurdles. They are easy clean and Freedom Foods recommend 10 pigs per nipple. The nipple bar troughs are stainless steel and have eight outlets and are fitted with anti-cracking frost protection. They can be supplied with either vertical or bite nipples.
Tank on Stand.
500 litre tank on height adjustable stand with chequer base plate and 3 bite nipples.
Nipple bars come in various sizes, however the standard is 8 spaces but do not have the under trough as shown below. For frost protection a system that allows ice to expand without splitting the tube helps prevent damage. For temperatures below -5C additional frost protection is recommended, such as putting the bars inside the tents.
A fresh, clean water supply at all times – easily adjustable for the well-being of your pigs.
