Our farm currently has 130 Holstein milk producing cows.
Each cow wears a yellow ID tag in their her ear and a computer chip colloar around their her neck, so the farmer can track her and her offspring's health.
Their diet consists of hay, grain and corn silage.
They eat about 100 pounds per day
A cow drinks approx 1 bathtub full of water per day.
