Feed Trough

Just Tip, Dump, and Clean

Product Overview

Lactating cows drink between 30 U.S. gallons (113 liters) to 50 U.S. gallons (189 liters) of water a day, and double that during heat stress periods. This means it’s critical to the health and wellbeing of your herd to have easy, consistent access to fresh and clean water.
VES-Artex dump-able water troughs make providing clean and fresh water fast and efficient. These troughs can also be used for feed.

Benefits of Feed Troughs

  • Cows with access to higher quality water will drink and eat more resulting in healthier animals that produce more milk
  • Traditional water troughs are cumbersome and difficult to clean. VES-Artex troughs are designed to make cleaning fast and efficient: just dump and refill
  • Dry matter intake is a critical component for the success of high-performance cows. Dry matter intake is directly tied to water intake; a drop in water intake has been shown to reduce productivity by up to 20%

Encourage dry matter intake or water consumption with a VES-Artex trough.
