After discussions with many enthusiastic subscribers to the WaterForCows model at World Dairy Expo last week, Mark Holt, President of Vi-COR®, Inc. decided that this valuable tool should be made more widely available to the dairy industry. As a result, access to the WaterForCows model is now free to all users, with the intention that all dairy producers, nutritionists, veterinarians and consultants will be able to easily evaluate the quality of water for their cows.
“Since 2003, Vi-COR has supported our customers with the Milk to the Max program, and more recently with the Feeder Education and Employee Development (FEED) program” says Holt. “Water quality is just too important to dairy cows and dairy producers, so we want to get the word out by giving them a tool that can help drive improvements in this very critical input.”
To sign up for access to the WaterForCows model, simply visit the Subscribe Now! tab at WaterForCows.com, complete the registration form and then log on to use the model. All you need is a water analysis and a diet summary to learn how your water supply may be affecting your cows’ productivity or health.
