fresh, clean water is imperative for wellbeing.
The requirement for fresh water is influenced by numerous factors such as the animal’s activity, air temperature, humidity, respiratory rate, water intake, feed consumption, and several physiological factors such as age, reproductive status (e.g. dry, pregnant, lactating), milk production and many other factors.
Happy, healthy, and stress free animals with unlimited, fresh clean water are the primary factors, other than genetics, (both have a cause and effect correlation) to overall livestock profitability.
Water quality may change over time and previous analysis is not a indicator of current quality. Water sources need to be tested regularly.
