  1. Durability and Longevity: RELN’s feed and water troughs are designed tough and built to last. Made from high quality materials, our feed and water troughs are designed to withstand the daily rigors of farm life. Being corrosion, rust and UV resistant ensures a longer lifespan for the equipment, while reducing maintenance costs for farmers.
  2. Hygienic Design & Solution: Maintaining the cleanliness of water sources is crucial for preventing diseases and ensuring the overall health of livestock. RELN’s water troughs are designed with hygiene in mind, featuring smooth surfaces and rounded corners that are easy to clean and disinfect – reducing the risk of bacterial buildup. This not only reduces the risk of waterborne illnesses among animals but also minimises the time and effort required for regular maintenance. A healthier environment for animals = higher productivity for farmers.
  3. Versatile: RELN offers a range of water troughs and tubs to suit various livestock and farm setups. Whether you’re managing a small herd of cattle, a flock of sheep, or other animals, RELN products come in different sizes and configurations to meet the specific needs of your operation.
  4. Innovative Design Features: One of the standout features of RELN’s water troughs is their innovative design. Engineered with the needs of both farmers and animals in mind, our products often incorporate smart features such as sloped interiors for easy cleaning, float valve systems for automatic water replenishment, and UV-resistant materials to prevent deterioration from prolonged sun exposure. The result is a user-friendly solution that enhances efficiency in managing livestock water supply. Look at our range of Accessories.
  5. Environmental Considerations: As sustainability becomes an increasingly important aspect of modern agriculture, RELN’s feed and water troughs take environmental concerns into account. Many of these products are made from recycled materials, promoting eco-friendly practices in farming. Additionally, their efficient design often leads to reduced water wastage, aligning with the principles of responsible water management.
  6. Water Conservation: At RELN we recognise the importance of water conservation in agriculture. Our water troughs are designed to minimise water wastage, ensuring that animals have access to clean water without unnecessary runoff. This not only benefits the environment but also contributes to cost savings for farmers in areas where water is a precious resource.
