The pump can be used by cows, horses, and even bison. Each pump is good for 30 horses or dry cows. The RIFE Pasture/Nose Pumps are base on the Pavlovian Theory of conditioned behavior. Animals learn that pushing the activator reward them with water it takes between one minute and a couple of hours for livestock to learn how to operate the pump. Increasing costs of hay production and growing interest in short duration grazing (using paddocks) are encouraging more and more livestock farmers to take advantage of the economic and environmental benefits of pasturing. Pastures need water. The RIFE Pasture/Nose Pump brings water to the pasture conveniently, economically, and without polluting water sources with animal wastes and eroding embankments. The RIFE Pasture/Nose Pump is mounted (with screws) on a timber platform that is anchored securely to the ground with wooden stakes. The supply pipe is connected to the rear of the pump at one end and a foot valve at the other. Both connections are made completely air tight by using hose clips the foot valve is kept clear of the ditch bed by latching the pipe to a board laid across the banks.
