Polyethylene animal drinking troughs make sense

Poly animal troughs
Poly or plastic drinking and feeding troughs are a great alternative to steel, concrete and fibreglass troughs for the following reasons:

  • Poly troughs do not rust, corrode or flake fibres and other particles so are therefore a healthier choice for livestock
  • Polyethylene troughs are generally less expensive than troughs made from other materials
  • Regular cleaning is important for the health of livestock – plastic drinking troughs can be thoroughly cleaned due to the smooth surfaces (rough surfaces in troughs made from other materials are prone to a build-up of algae and possibly other micro-organisms)
  • The light weight of poly troughs makes them easy to transport and install – once they are ket full with water, the weight is sufficient to reduce the chance of livestock moving or upturning the troughs
  • Good quality polyethylene troughs such as those made by JoJo Tanks, are robust and have UV protection, making them ideal for years of service in our harsh African climate
  • JoJo poly troughs (sheep and cattle versions) are sold with a ball valve

South Africa’s JoJo Tanks manufacture a 160 litre sheep trough as well as two sizes of cattle troughs – a 250 litre trough and a 500 litre trough. JoJo Tanks also make a poly horse feeder/animal feeder with a 6 litre capacity.
