“I lost 29 head of cattle in my dugouts before I discovered the Frostfree Nosepump. Now I have a reliable watering system that doesn’t demand any of my time and is safe for my animals. I’m very grateful for my Frostfree Nosepumps. They make life easier.”

“Our bison quickly learned that a little nose action provided them with water. Bison may be lazy, but they prefer water over snow. A great maintenance–free, clean waterer. I would definitely recommend it. Pity the guys who are “playing” with their waterers over Christmas, when they could own a Frostfree Nosepump and be playing with their kids or grandkids!”

“We have rented pasture for two years where Frostfree Nosepumps were the only source of water. We were very happy with the condition of both the cows and calves when we brought them home. It took a very short time for the animals to learn how to use the pumps and they did very well with this as their only source of water.”

“I feel the main focus of these is the health of the riparian area around the dugout and to some extent the nice water in the dugout (since the cows are drinking crystal clear water instead of muddy).”

“The FFNP keeps my livestock out of the pond (dugout). They have clean water and therefore we have no sickness. It is great not to depend on power. I was dubious at first, but I am very pleased with the pump.”

“The Frostfree Nosepump offers livestock producers an inexpensive option to keep cattle out of water sources thus improving their water quality on the farm and also the quality of water for users downstream. Because of its ability to operate in the winter, this pump allows producers to move cattle away from the yard where there is traditionally a concentrated feeding area, to areas where the manure will be beneficial instead of detrimental.”

“We need to winter water our cows from a dugout. In the past we had to chop ice. Now we don’t need to chop ice or risk losing a cow in the dugout. We provide them with cleaner water whenever they want it and we achieve this without the need for power by using a Frostfree Nosepump – one of our best investments.”

“Since purchasing a Frostfree Nosepump we can winter our cows ¾ mile away from the yard until calving. That means cows are calving in cleaner corrals (less sickness) and there is significantly less manure to haul. When our cows are in the yard, we need to haul water to supplement our water source. With the FFNP our work is less, and we basically water our cows at no cost.”

“The FFNP has given us year–round use of our dugout and turned summer pasture into another wintering ground.

  • manure’s on the field where it does some good
  • cattle are off dugout banks in summer & ice in winter
  • the water stays clean & fresh

 It’s an awesome unit!”
