Water Essential for Cattle in High Heat

Cattle Drinking Water

When temperatures soar, making sure cattle have enough water is critical. During hot weather, cattle can drink up to 20 or more gallons a day.  It also is important for ranchers to check ponds and tanks for green or blue-green algae because certain types of algae can be fatal to livestock. Water testing should be conducted to ensure optimum productivity of your herd or flock.
