Water Quality For Livestock Drinking :

Water is a critical nutrient for livestock and poultry. As with feed ingredients, livestock water should meet the nutritional needs of the animal. An adequate and safe water supply is essential to the production of healthy livestock and poultry. Water that adversely affects the growth, reproduction, or productivity of livestock and poultry cannot be considered suitable. A high level of suspended solids and an objectionable taste, odor or color in water can cause animals to drink less than they should.

Stagnant can serve as a reservoir for many different disease organisms and toxins. water contaminated may develop blue-green algae, which can poison livestock, causing muscle tremors, liver damage, and death. Water sumps & storage tanks needs to be observed for the presence of algae and other harmful organisms during hot, dry weather.

Leptospirosis and Fusobacterium are two bacterial contaminants that often use water as modes of transportation from animal to animal. This diseases often manifests itself as reproductive problems. Problems may range from infertility, to low milk production, to widespread late-term abortion. The organism can survive for extended periods of time in surface waters with algae & bacteria.

Fusobacterium infection is more commonly known as “foot-rot.” The bacteria enters through cuts, bruises, or puncture wounds on damaged feet of other animals. Once inside an animal’s body, they multiply rapidly and serve to spread the disease. Clinical signs of “foot-rot” are most commonly seen as chronic lameness, often with swelling above the foot. Water is too often blamed for production or disease problems.


Poor Water Quality Can Steal Cattle Blind

There are many factors that affect sound animal husbandry practices for cattle, both in confinement and on open range. Supplying adequate nutrition water during the different production stages, along with a solid health program.

Water is the most important nutrient in the realm of Animal Husbandry. During the average day cattle will consume three-times as much water. Cattle can live without some feed sources for a period of time, but they will die quickly due to lack of water.

High sulfate levels in both surface and subsurface water sources can impact performance and efficiency of animals.
