There are many reasons why concrete is superior to other materials. For one, it is highly durable, which is something that cannot be said for plastic and similar materials. Livestock will have a much harder time interfering with a concrete trough vs one of a lighter weight.
Additionally, it’s approved and recommended for all weather conditions. For this reason, concrete troughs are highly recommended for those areas that experience either extremely hot or cold temperatures (and especially locations that experience both). Plastic and other materials may become brittle in extreme weather conditions over time, which can lead to cracking and breaking. This exposes sharp edges which may cause serious injury to your livestock.
If you’re looking for water and feeding troughs that are created to industry standards and that won’t wear down over time, then you need one of our quality precast concrete troughs for your farm.
