As farmers, we understand the importance of providing the best possible environment for our livestock. One crucial aspect of this is ensuring they always have access to clean and fresh food and water. That’s why we provide high quality concrete water troughs & concrete feed troughs in NSW & QLD.
While traditional alternatives such as wooden or steel water troughs have been used for years, they do come with their own set of disadvantages. Concrete troughs, on the other hand, offer numerous advantages and have emerged as the ultimate solution for modern farming.
One of the most significant benefits of using concrete water troughs and feed troughs is their remarkable durability and longevity. Constructed with sturdy concrete, these troughs can stand up to the test of time, even under extreme conditions. Unlike traditional water troughs made of wood or steel, concrete troughs are not susceptible to rust or decay. This means they require less maintenance and can last for decades with proper care.
Moreover, concrete water and feed troughs are incredibly resistant to impacts from livestock. Accidental hits or kicks from animals won’t damage these sturdy vessels, making them an ideal solution for modern farming. Their exceptional strength and durability make concrete water troughs a sound investment for any farmer looking to provide many generations of livestock with clean water.
Another advantage of concrete water and feed troughs is their ability to withstand harsh weather conditions. Even in areas with extreme temperatures such as Queensland, concrete troughs remain unaffected and can provide reliable access to food and water for your livestock. Concrete troughs are also resistant to UV rays and do not fade or deteriorate due to exposure to sunlight.
Additionally, traditional water and feed troughs in some inland areas of Queensland, have been known to crack or become damaged when it gets very cold. Concrete water troughs are resistant to freezing, meaning they can be used in areas with very cold temperatures with less chance of damage.
Concrete water and feed troughs are an affordable alternative to other traditional troughs. While the initial cost of installation may be slightly higher, no frequent maintenance or replacement is required. Also, while traditional troughs may require a costly lining or special coating to prevent rust, rot or contamination, concrete water and feed troughs do not require any additional lining, making them a cost-effective solution in the long run.
Concrete troughs are highly customisable and can be made to fit any specific requirements. They can be made in various shapes and sizes, depending on the needs of the livestock and the available space. The versatility of concrete means your water and feed troughs can be coloured or painted to match the surrounding landscape, making them an aesthetically pleasing addition to any modern farming setup.
Design features can also be added to your concrete troughs such as overflow channels, drainage systems, or insulation, depending on the purpose of the trough, the specific needs of the livestock and the climate of the area.
