For farmers, ensuring that cows stay properly fed and hydrated is of the utmost importance. What's also important is allowing cattle to have the opportunity to maintain a high quality of life. Flies, lice, ticks, and mosquitoes can all cause major irritation to cows, and, in some cases, can result in undesirable health conditions.
Thankfully, there's no need for cows to have to suffer from these issues. At Springfield Co-op Creamery, we carry the Easy Way Mineral Feeder from Easy Way Cattle Care. Able to be configured either in hanging fashion or on a stand, these mineral feeders are constructed of durable materials, and are built to work with cows and calves in both pasture and lot settings year-round. In addition to giving cows the convenience of being able to get rid of miniature pests, the Easy Way Mineral Feeder is constructed to assist in the reduction of various cattle diseases, such as pinkeye. Ultimately, your cattle will receive the best of both worlds — unrestricted access to clean water while having an outlet to eliminate small, pesky insects.
