At SPI Plastics, we understand the critical role a reliable watering solution plays in maintaining the health and productivity of your livestock. Ensuring you have clean, readily available water at all times is essential for the well-being of your animals. That’s why we are dedicated to providing high-quality, durable livestock watering troughs that meet and exceed industry standards. In this blog post, we will discuss the manufacturing process of our livestock watering troughs, explore the various options available, and explain why SPI Plastics should be your go-to solution for all your livestock watering requirements.

How Are SPI Plastics’ Livestock Watering Troughs Manufactured?

SPI Plastics manufactures livestock watering troughs using a unique process known as rotational molding. This method involves heating plastic in a mold and rotating it, which ensures uniform thickness and high durability of the final product.

By utilizing rotational molding, we are able to create robust and leak-proof watering troughs that can withstand even the harshest environmental conditions, providing reliable hydration for your livestock day after day. Our troughs are specifically designed to endure the demands of daily use on your farm or ranch, guaranteeing long-lasting performance and peace of mind. They are also FDA and HPB-approved, food-grade, recyclable plastic, making them a safe and environmentally friendly choice for your animals. And they meet “Grade A” Dairy requirements.

Furthermore, the versatility of the rotational molding process allows us to offer a wide range of sizes and shapes for our watering troughs. Whether you have a small farm or a large ranch, our products meet your specific needs and requirements.

Different Livestock Watering Troughs Available

We know that every livestock operation is unique and, therefore, requires distinct solutions. That’s why SPI Plastics offers a variety of watering troughs to cater to different livestock types, sizes, and environments.

Electric Livestock Waterers

Our electric livestock waterers are designed with the ever-changing needs of a farm in mind. Available in four different sizes, these watering solutions are ideal for all types of livestock. Each waterer is equipped with a large drain plug, making the emptying process both quick and efficient. Notably, these waterers are constructed with solid polyurethane foam insulation, an important feature that keeps the water ice-free for longer periods during winter and helps to maintain cooler temperatures in summer. Additionally, these waterers are fitted with a heater, ensuring a consistent supply of water during the colder months, thus making them a reliable choice for your farm year-round. As the name suggests, these require a source of electricity to operate.

Energy Free Livestock Waterers

Energy-free livestock waterers offer a versatile and efficient watering solution without dependence on an electricity source. These waterers come in three sizes, catering to various livestock sizes and environments. A unique feature is the exclusive double seal, which encompasses an aqua seal and foam gaskets, ensuring an airtight seal between the lid and base. This design helps to maintain temperature, keeping water ice-free for extended periods in cold weather and cooler during warm seasons.

Additionally, our patented door closure system is designed to prevent door freeze-up and contamination by birds. This feature also significantly reduces mosquito breeding, thereby decreasing the risk of West Nile Virus transmission. These energy-free waterers are a practical and safe choice to meet your livestock’s hydration needs in any season.

Tip Tank Livestock Waterers

Our tip tank livestock waterers are an unparalleled solution in the industry, ensuring maximum safety and convenience for your animals. Available in two sizes, these waterers come equipped with a unique feature: the mounting hardware is encased within the waterer itself. This innovative design provides enhanced safety for animals and safeguards the moving parts of the Tip Tank, ensuring its longevity. Whether you prefer wall or floor mounting, these tanks offer the ultimate ease of water access, service, and cleaning.

XL Series Livestock Waterers

The XL series livestock waterers are a robust and versatile option, available in three sizes to suit a range of livestock needs. Central to each unit is a large drain plug, facilitating quick and efficient drainage. These waterers are designed with a rounded, smooth basin and a tapered floor bottom, eliminating corners where dirt and manure could accumulate, hence simplifying the cleaning and maintenance process. A ground rod is included with every unit as a standard feature. Furthermore, our units have solid polyurethane foam insulation, which effectively keeps the water ice-free for extended periods during winter, and cooler in summer. For those in particularly harsh climates, optional features such as a submersible heater or self-regulating heat tape can be added to ensure water availability even in freezing conditions.

Stock Tanks

Our stock tanks are a cost-effective, versatile, and durable solution for your livestock watering needs. These plastic tanks are lightweight and easy to handle, making them suitable for a wide range of applications and environments. With their simple design and sturdy construction, SPI Plastics’ stock tanks deliver reliable, hassle-free watering for your livestock.
