Here you can read the abstract of this talk:
Providing clean, abundant drinking water is an important aspect for keeping flocks healthy and optimizing production. However, this can be complicated by factors such as mineral contaminants, pH, water storage, usage level, water system cleanliness and sanitizer usage. To optimize water quality, the process should start with a thorough evaluation of the water supply and system to determine if there are weaknesses that should be addressed. Next, implementing an effective water system cleaning between flocks prepares the system to gain maximum benefit from the use of daily water sanitizers. Finally, choosing water treatments that provide the best value at an affordable cost combined with the implementation of a consistent monitoring program can help assure water programs are successful.
