STATE COLLEGE (Centre
Co.) Inadequate water intake
by lactating daily cows will result
in a decrease in milk production
faster and more dramatically than
any other nutritional factor.
Depending on a particular prob
lem situation, it may be necessary
to determine how much drinking
water the milk cows are
Normally, milk cows will con
sume 4 to 4.5 pounds of water
from both eating and drinking per
pound of 4 percent fat-corrected
milk (4% FCM) produced daily.
The following are the equations
and an example on determining
drinking water intake.
Total water intake (Ibyday) =
(4 x dry matter intake)
of 4% FCM + 25.6
Drinking water intake (Ib./day)
= Total water intake-ration water.
Holstein cows are averaging
1,350 pounds and producing 57
