The consumption of ice and snow does not come close to providing the water necessary for cattle, sheep, hogs, etc., and should be discouraged as it also lowers body temperature and increases maintenance energy needs.
Carnarvon, Ontario (PRWEB) November 06, 2013
Lorne Heise, CEO of Heat-Line Freeze Protection Systems (http://www.heatline.com), is pleased to announce the launch of their latest innovative new product - Frost-Line™, an advanced freeze protected water supply system for livestock drinking bowls and watering equipment. Heat-Line, a division of Christopher MacLean Ltd., a Canadian company located 2 ½ hour north east of Toronto in Haliburton, Ontario, develops and manufactures advanced freeze protection solutions for water pipes and water systems.
The new Frost-Line product was specifically designed for use in water pipe risers that extend from below the frost line and into water toughs or drinking bowl housing. It comes complete with an external heating cable extension to protect plumbing externally within the housing. An addition to Heat-Line’s Retro-Line family of freeze protection products, Frost-Line solves the problem of maintaining a year-round reliable water supply to all types of livestock waterers, including livestock drinking bowls, cattle fountains, watering troughs, automatic waterers and more.
“Frost-Line offers a freeze protection solution for cattlemen, dairy farmers, hog producers, feedlot operators, or any other type of livestock operation that needs to ensure that their livestock have an adequate and reliable winter water supply, even in the coldest climates,” says Lorne Heise. “Good livestock husbandry dictates that providing sufficient qualities of water is crucial in maintaining optimum health. Although livestock water intake drops during the winter months, animals still require large quantities of water. The consumption of ice and snow does not come close to providing the water necessary for cattle, sheep, hogs, etc., and should be discouraged as it also lowers body temperature and increases maintenance energy needs. To keep the water flow from freezing, Frost-Line can be used in conjunction with livestock waterers, water bowls, troughs and fountains from the top manufacturers of livestock watering products, such as Ritchie and Nelson®. With the Frost-Line system, unreliable frost tubes and culverts will become a thing of the past,” explains Heise.
