If you're like me, you are tired of all the hassles and drudgery that go along with watering cattle in the wintertime. There is the leaking float valve and accompanying mud bog, the endless knocking of ice out of the barrel. Or worse, the old cast iron bathtub that grows thicker and thicker with ice until it only hold a few gallons of water. There's the frozen pipes and the frozen hoses that have to be taken up to the house to thaw.

But now there is a better way. Thanks to Miraco and their revolutionary Mirafount water system, you can say goodbye to all those heartbreaks forever. Gone for good are the whole days wasted, with wet cold hands, fighting to get the water running to your cows, as they bawl and knock you around in the slop.

Miraco's patented design works without an added heat source, so it won't run up your electric bill or add to global warming. It relies on a well insulated polymer tank mounted over a heat well, which uses the heat of the earth below the frost line to keep the pipe thawed. Add to that the exchange of water in the tank as the cows drink and you have a winning combination, which will give years of trouble free service. The blue floating balls help to keep the warmth in the tank, and are easily pushed out of the way by the cows as they drink clean, refeshing water.

I am so confident that you'll love the Mirafount as much as I do that I'll tell you to buy one youself. If you're not completely satisfied there must be something wrong with you and I don't want to hear about it. Act now and you will have your Mirafount a day sooner than if you act tomorrow.

Peter, do you think goats would drink out of this type of water tank?

Our goats will drink out of the side that I have the blue ball pinned out of the way on. My guess is that they would have a hard time pushing the balls down far enough by themselves. Also, it takes 20 cows drinking out of this thing to keep it from freezing because it relies on water exchange to keep some heat in it. They do make a pig version that has lids the pig flip up to drink. I think goats are smart enough to learn how to do that.

Thanks for the info. We are (hopefully) putting in an automatic watering system for our goats this summer. No more carrying 5 gal buckets of water from the creek to water them. :)
