Thrifty King

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 covered water also keeps the water cooler and prevent water evaporation during dry months


A popular choice in feedlots, pastures, and dairies, the WaterMaster Series features a heavy one-piece polyethylene body that holds up even under the weight of cattle. 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 they won't pit or cause cleaning problems.

Stall Fount

Stop carrying and refilling buckets of water for your horses. Ritchie offers four wall mounted fountains for your stall watering needs. All models provide fresh clean water using Ritchie's time proven valve for rapid refill and easy to clean stainless steel troughs. If you need freeze protection for your water, choose the Stall ount 125 or the New Stall Fount II 125 for added energy efficient, heated protection.

OmniFount (New Design)

The best of both worlds, OmniFount blends technology from both our traditional stainless steel units and our newest poly units to provide the premier livestock fountain. Omni's stainless steel trough features heat elements attached to the underside for frost free service even under the most severe winter conditions. The trough carries a 10 year 100% warranty against manufacturing defect or corrosion.
