Introduction

Poor water quality will counter the best nutritional programs resulting in below average feed conversions, weight gains and egg production. Good water quality will complement nutrition programs.

Water, whether ground, surface or municipal, is commonly polluted and laden with solids in suspension or in solution: clay particles, vegetable waste (organic mater), living organisms (plankton, bacteria, parasites, viruses), various salts (chlorides, sulfates, sodium, or calcium carbonates, iron, manganese, etc), organic matter (humic and fulvic acids, petroleum by-products, pesticides, fertilizers, manufacturing residues….), and gases (methane, hydrogen sulfide……). Because of the large number of impurities, water must be treated before use in order to make it suitable for its INTENDED APPLICATION e.g. to be of health and metabolic benefit  to poultry.

A specific treatment must be carefully designed to insure that the “Intended result” is obtained. To understand “intended result” one must understand  1. The effects of the selected treatment on final water quality, 2. The limitations of the selected treatment, and 3. The impact of all residuals/residues on the metabolic processes of poultry. In other words, the success of the intended water treatment is dependent on the selected program to manage inorganics, pathogens and organics in such a fashion that all residues have either a neutral or health benefit to poultry.

Water is 60% of the diet for poultry. Water represents 70% of total body weight. Water is the key transport medium for all metabolic processes. As an example: digestion and absorption require water to maintain fluidity of the lumen contents, to serve as a medium for bringing digestive enzymes into contact with food particles, and to allow the diffusion of digested nutrients to epithelial cells, where absorption occurs. In the case of this example, if there is anything carried by ingested water, either inorganic, microorganisms and/or inorganic matter, that blocks, interferes or competes with the digestive process, then the performance of the animal is less than optimum.

Each designated farm (highlighted in green) had the well water treated with KL-AOP to an ORP of +600 – +650 ORP. All data is as reported by the integrator.
