Title
(EN) LIVESTOCK WATER BOWL
(FR) ABREUVOIR POUR BÉTAIL
Abstract
(EN)
A water vessel for providing water to livestock animals in tie stalls is described. The vessel features a sensor for providing water in response to a sensed presence of a livestock animal's head within the vessel. As water is provided to the vessel, the livestock animal is compelled to lift their head and thereby withdrawing their head from the region sensed by the sensor. In this way, the depth of water in the vessel is maintained within a predetermined range. The vessel also comprises a rim that is disposed sufficiently above the predetermined range of water levels that the livestock animal is compelled to lift their head in a substantially vertical fashion in order to withdraw their head from the vessel. This serves to reduce the spillage of water from the vessel.

L'invention concerne un récipient à eau pour apporter de l'eau à des animaux d'élevage en stabulations entravées. Le récipient présente un capteur pour amener de l'eau en réponse à une présence détectée de la tête d'un animal d'élevage dans le récipient. Lorsque l'eau est amenée dans le récipient, l'animal d'élevage est contraint de relever la tête et donc de la retirer de la région détectée par le capteur. De cette manière, la profondeur d'eau dans le récipient est maintenue dans une plage prédéterminée. Le récipient comprend également un bord qui est disposé suffisamment au-dessus de la plage prédéterminée de niveaux d'eau pour que l'animal d'élevage soit contraint de relever la tête d'une façon sensiblement verticale afin de la retirer du récipient. Ceci sert à réduire le déversement accidentel d'eau hors du récipient.
