Water trough pump: cattle operated pasture or nose pump

The pump shall be designed to allow the animal to use its nose to push a lever that pumps water into a small water bowl or reservoir. The pump should normally be of cast iron with a low wear level mechanism. The connection and valve are to be of a non-corrosive material. A metal splash pan can be positioned under the reservoir to catch spillage. The pumps should be anchored securely to prevent movement.
