Downloadable Content

open in viewer

This project addressed some of the issues associated with watering systems for small chicken operations in New England. Interviews with New England extension agents and local farms, as well as a review of scholarly literature, extension websites, and other farming resources, highlighted both the importance of plentiful and quality water for the health and productivity of a flock, as well as the issues associated with maintaining a watering system. Our system reduces the labor associated with maintaining a watering system, while ensuring a plentiful and high-quality supply of water for a flock. The reduction in labor and water quality improvements that our system provides can help improve the productivity and profitability of small chicken operations in New England.
