Saving $1,000-$3,000 in chemicals a month

We were spending upwards of $1,000-$3,000 in chemicals every month trying to eliminate the coliform count and control algae growth. Magnation is saving us money.

Magnation Replaces Bleach for Algae & Coliform

We used to use bleach to treat the algae and coliform growth. Now, we don't use bleach at all. The only thing we changed was implementing the Magnation system.

SAVING TIME AND MONEY

Cleaning labor went from 8-9 hours a week down to 3 hours a week. We're able to just brush any residue away instead of applying chemicals. It's a way to save money. We're saving 300 hours a year, at $15 bucks an hour, that's $4,500 in labor savings this year alone.

hydrated cows are better producers

There's a difference between your cows having enough water and being hydrated. If you have a tough day and something happens where you run out of water, the cows know that they're out of water. They will lie down and not produce. Now, with the system, we're better able to handle those times. The cows are more hydrated with less water. The cows are better able to handle all kinds of stress. The overall water quality in the whole system really does make a difference. You don't wait until you run out of water before doing something, your cows are consistently hydrated with less water.

Improved heat stress

The cows are better able to deal with the heat stress...all summer long it's been better than it's ever been before.
