RITCHIE Waterers


Ritchie Water Master Livestock Waterer
A popular choice in feedlots, pastures, and dairies all across North America, the WaterMaster Series features a heavy one-piece polyethylene body that holds up even under the weight of cattle hooves. The trough slopes to a large drain, and can be emptied, cleaned, and refilled in a fraction of the time other waterers take to empty. WaterMaster requires 75% less energy in the winter than concrete units. And, the WaterMaster won't pit or cause cleaning problems. Is it any wonder we back up the WaterMaster with a Five Plus Five warranty?
  • All surfaces slope to drain for easy cleaning

  • Finger lift service cover: No tools, springs, or clips

Ritchie Thrifty King Livestock Waterer
Thrifty King insulates the water so well that you can make it through the winter without supplying heat in many areas, and it takes little electricity in those areas where the winter is severe (see energy ratings below). The water is completely surrounded by fully insulated polyethylene plastic - even the floats are insulated. In summer, the water is cooler and covered water protects against mosquitoes breeding, lowering the risk of spreading West Nile Virus.

The WaterMatic Family features Ritchie's drop-in cover design, with the ease of finger lift service, and the insulation of the patented water seal. The 150S features a unique domed cover to help prevent standing and climbing. All surfaces slope to the drains for easy clean out. Drain plugs can be moved to the valve chamber openings for short-term trough shut-off during cleaning, when your pen is empty, during excessively cold nights, or when you don't want your animals drinking.
