There are various reasons why water consumed 'by dairy cows should be pure. In the first place, pure water promotes the health of the animals, Cows which are compelled to drink impure water usually fall away rapidly. Impure water contains the ova of dangerous parasites. These parasites attack all kinds of farm animals that drink water containing the ova. The dangerous thing is that the cause of the loss of animals by parasites is unsuspected, and th...
