Water supply for pigs
Optimal water management contributes to raising healthy and profitable pigs. Major sources of water for physiological needs, including growth, reproduction, and lactation are water from feedstuffs, water from metabolic processes, and drinking water.
Pigs drink from a variety of devices and the amount of water needed daily by the pig thus depend on numerous influences, including temperature, feedstuffs, stage of production and health.
Average daily water needs for pigs
Generally, grow-finish and gestating swine demonstrate a peak in water usage in the late afternoon while lactating females consume water more consistently throughout the day. Daily water needs for pigs range from
- Less than 1.9 liters/pig/day for newly weaned pigs.
- Greater than 5.6 liters/pig/day for grow-finish pigs utilizing nipple drinkers.
- About 15 liters/day for gestating females.
- About 22.7 liters/day for lactating swine.
Signs of water deficiency in pigs include:
- Pigs/sows drink for prolonged periods when water is available.
- Sows lick or suck water from the floor.
Leaking drinker devices/improperly constructed troughs are major sources of excess water disappearance in production facilities. Thus, nipple drinkers (with filters) are a cost-effective solution for clean drinking water as well as the reduction in contamination.
Installation of the drinker set
This drinker set has attachment options with screws to mount at appropriate heights on the wall.
- To minimize water losses, the right height is important (consult accompanying chart photograph).
- When drinking, the pig’s head should be inclined upwards so that the water flows directly into the pig’s mouth.
- This is why the nipples are placed at different heights in piglet rearing and finishing.
- When mounting brackets with 45º angles are utilized, greater heights are necessary in order for the pig to manipulate the drinker and minimize water wastage.
