Off Stream Watering

In some cases, where cattle have free access for watering, the water quality of a stream can be affected by the disturbance of banks and the deposition of excrement.

However it is a well established fact that if cattle are given a choice of drinking from a stream or an elevated trough they will almost always choose the latter.

Providing off stream watering points alone and or in conjunction with strategically located fencing can markedly improve water quality leaving beef and dairy properties.
