Feed Trough

Just Tip, Dump, and Clean

Product Overview

VES-Artex feed troughs can also be used as water troughs because the troughs keep feed and water clean all while being easy to access by the herd. As the troughs can be used for both services, you have flexibility in their applications depending on your herd’s needs.

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 well-being of your herd to have easy, consistent access to fresh and clean water. VES-Artex dumpable water troughs make providing clean and fresh water fast and efficient.
