Trial Comments

  • While the trial procedure was not strictly adhered to, meaning results were skewed, the client did emphasise that he believes the system has a lot of merit, and is currently using the Pump System
  • Minimal information was gained from this trial as problems with the monitoring of consumption levels occurred

  • The dairy had a very poor quality water supply. Recommendations to upgrade the water troughs have been made which will alleviate the problem
