Farm and agricultural operations across Canada, in provinces such as Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, depend on their dugouts for a clean water source. An efficient and dependable dugout aeration system is a must to ensure good water quality and agricultural success.

But dugout aeration in provinces across Canada have additional benefits for every sector of agricultural.

This same study found that an 8-9% increase in weight gain was evident in steers that access to aerated water when compared to those drinking untreated duout water. 

The investment in water quality can lead to significant profit increases in your cattle operation. The Beef Cattle Research Council offers a calculator found here to calculate the economic benefit your cattle operation can have from installing an aeration system. 

Dugout Aeration for Irrigation Water

For agriculture operations that pull water from dugouts for irrigation purposes, water aeration can have extensive benefits.

The most obvious benefit is that aerated water increases the oxygen levels in the water, but this process also works to remove up to 95% of phosphates from the water. Further, aeration decreases the release of hydrogen gasses from the pond. Aeration benefits extend even further to lower pH levels in your irrgation water
