Spillproof Nipple Waterers
"Nipple valves deliver water into the bottom recess of a special-made protective trough, keeping water clean and virtually eliminating spillage when hogs drink. Our `no mess' design produces 20% less slurry per pig per day than conventional nipple drinkers," says the manufacturer.
A Drik-O-Mat model for growing-finishing hogs sells for $46.50, and a smaller model for weaners for $38.50. Both models come with stainless steel nipple valves that adjust to deliver 1 to 5 quarts per minute.
