Poultry and Livestock

poultry and livestock

Water is involved in every aspect of poultry metabolism. It plays important roles in regulating body temperature, digesting food, and eliminating body wastes. At normal temperatures, poultry consumes at least twice as much water as feed. When heat stress occurs, water consumption will double or even quadruple. A safe and adequate supply of water is therefore essential for efficient poultry production.

Poor water quality, can retard growth, curtail egg production, or produce lower egg quality. Bodyweight is positively influenced by drinking water quality, and negatively influenced by water born micro- organism. Water purification is the removal of contaminants from untreated water. Substances that are removed during the process of water treatment include bacteria, algae, viruses, fungi, minerals such as iron, manganese and sulphur, and man-made chemical pollutants including fertilisers.
