Whether ranchers and farmers are raising cattle, bison, horses, sheep or other livestock, reliably providing fresh water is a necessity throughout the year. This is a particularly challenging during winter when standing water sources can ice over and that is where East Peru, Iowa-based Cobett Company has a reliable open water automatic waterer that can ease plumbing access and make electrical heating unnecessary. Cobett’s partially buried systems keep fresh water open, uncovered and readily available to livestock, and rely on natural ground heat making electrical heating devices unnecessary. The durable designs prevent water valves and plumbing from freezing while providing the owner access as needed by removing the water tub. The system uses a wide column of ground heat by placing the tub inside the ground heat chamber—not just above it—so the entire tub of water is constantly and directly warmed or cooled by the surrounding underground temperatures. Because there are no doors, seals or a concrete pad, there are no cracks for air leaks. Installation is typically a half-day, four-step process—Dig a hole; set units in the hole; refill the hole with dirt; and then lay 12 inches of gravel on top of the ground before use.
