Water Quality Testing for Livestock

Water is an essential nutrient which is involved in all basic physiological functions of the body. However, it is important to note that water, relative to other nutrients, is consumed in considerably larger quantities. Therefore, water availability and quality are extremely important for animal health and productivity. Limiting water availability to livestock will depress production rapidly and severely, and poor quality drinking water is often a factor limiting intake. Considering that water is consumed in large quantities, if water is poor quality, there is an increased risk that water contaminants could reach a level that may be harmful. 

BioCheck's Water Testing Panel analyzes for the following:

  • E. coli bacteria
  • Total Coliform Count
  • pH
  • Copper
  • Iron
  • Nitrate
  • Nitrogen
  • Manganese
  • Chloride
  • Sulfate
  • Hardness (Ca/Mg)
  • Total Dissolved Solids
  • Total Alkalinity
  • Salinity

Please provide a minimum of 250ml of water in a clean container.  Turn around time: 24hrs
