Nipple Waterer

Nipple Waterer

Trying to water hogs in an open trough or bowl is an exercise in futility, as the hogs will think you put that water there to entertain them, not to keep them hydrated. Unless you really like carrying buckets, try this approach instead: thread one of these nipple drinkers through the side of a 55-gallon plastic drum and seal with JB Weld’s WaterWeld or 3M’s 5200 Marine Caulk to make an inexpensive, spill-proof, tug-proof and generally pig-proof waterer. In addition to drinking water, in hot weather provide your hogs with a wet area for wallowing.

Additional Information

Feeding Watering Supplies

Raising animals on pasture at low stocking densities and providing outdoor access in the winter instead of confining animals to a climate-controlled barn means we can’t take advantage of the efficiencies offered by modern automatic feeding and watering equipment. The extra time involved in moving feed, water and fencing contributes greatly to the higher cost of ethically raised animal products. These products will help to streamline your chores, so you might find time to weed the garden, raise more animals, or sit on the porch.

Organic Certification

Inoculants, soil amendments, fertilizers, livestock supplies and pesticides are labeled as:
OMRI: Organic Materials Review Institute. Most state certifying agencies, including MOFGA, accept OMRI approval.
MOFGA: Maine Organic Farmers & Gardeners Association. Reviewed by MOFGA and allowed for use on MOFGA-certified farms. Check with your certifier.
WSDA: The Washington State Department of Agriculture’s Organic Certifying division has approved these products for use in organic agriculture in Washington State. MOFGA has indicated that they will accept products on this list for their certification program. Check with your certifier.
Nat’l List: One-ingredient products on the NOP* List of Allowed Substances (subpart G of the Organic Foods Production Act, sections 205.601-606). Check with your certifier.
AYC: Products whose active ingredient is on the list of allowed substances, but which are not on the OMRI or WSDA list. Ask your certifier.
Not Allowed: A few of the products we list are not allowed for organic production but we think they have a place in sensible agriculture and can be used when certification is not an issue.
