How much water do cows have to drink to produce milk?
This really depends on the salinity of the feed, the time of year, climate, weather, heat index, etc. Since milk is 98 to 99% water, most of the water a cow drinks goes into milk production in addition to the cow's bodily needs for water. Lactating cows tend to drink more water than cows that are dry.

Not as a staple liquid. They drink water to remain hydrated. However, there are cows that will suckle from another cow (called milk-stealing), or older heifers suckle on older cows or each other. There are even reports of a cow reaching back to suckle milk from her own udder if she can reach back fa…r enough. (MORE)
Answer . An average Holstein cow in the United States produces about 22,000 pounds (10,000 kg) of milk per year. This is roughly equivalent to 2650 U.S. gallons (10,000 liters ) http://www.answers.com/topic/holstein-cattle
In North America most dairy cows produce about 8 gallons per day, or about 20,000 pounds per year.
Cows produce 19,825 pounds of milk each year. That's 2,305 gallons of milk a year or about 8 gallons of milk every day of her milking period.
It depends on the cow and it's quality we have some that produce 100 lbs per day and some that produce about 10 lbs per day i help milk alot This question should be answered in fluid ounces, as milk is a liquid, not a solid. Most milk is talked about either in pounds or in liters. I have never h…eard of anyone talk about it in fluid ounces. (MORE)
A "Dairy Cow" (not a normal cow) will produce around 19,576 pounds of milk per year, or 2,276 US Gallons per year.
Well it produces a lot of milk so yeah and love to have cows produce milk when I see you smile it like a thing I would.t change cause
Ayrshire cow can produce milk 5000 - 16000 kg/year. In 2006 Finland Ayrshire cows average milk production was 8 472 kg of milk. Fat-% was 4.29, and protein-% 3.46
Because it contains two essential needs calcium and potassium which helps prevent brittle bone at an early age when where older.
No, rabbits can NOT have cows milk. They are unable to handle the fats and lactose in this. Rabbits milk is VERY rich, and baby rabbits may suffer convulsions and die when given cows milk for a certain length of time. Goats milk and kittens milk are the next closest alternatives for orphan rabbits.
No, A puppy cannot drink cow's milk because it will cause diarrhea. most dogs have a lactose intolerance...If you wish to give your puppy milk, get puppy milk formula at a local Pet supply store OR you can do goats milk or you can try this: 500ml Goat's Milk 1 small cup plain yogurt 2 egg yolk … or 400ml Evaporated milk 100ml water 1 cup plain yogurt 2 egg yolk (MORE)
A dairy cow will drink upwards of 40 to 50 gal. of water per day.
Yes, and often do. Free range farm ducks often go for the milk pail to get a drink. Milk has good amounts of calcium and proteins that would help the duck produce good solid egg shells. Ducks and chickens enjoy a feed of cheese whenever available also.
Its Not good for cats to drink milk unless it Is milk Made For cats otherwise it can make them ill. :)
There are several reasons to delay the introduction of cow's milk until your baby reaches his first birthday. Most important, a baby's digestive system can't digest cow's milk proteins. Cow's milk also has too much sodium, potassium, and chloride, which can tax your baby's kidneys. Even if his sy…stem could handle it, cow's milk doesn't have all the vitamins and minerals (especially vitamin E, zinc, and iron) that he needs for growth and development in his first year. Giving a baby cow's milk could even cause iron deficiency and internal bleeding. And it can increase his risk of an allergic reaction. (MORE)
The average dairy cow produces about eight gallons of milk everyday. That is the equivalent of 128 glasses of milk per day from onecow.
The amount of milk that a cow gives per lifetime depends on the breed, the most common breeds of dairy cattle produce the following amount of milk per lifetime. Aryshire: 15,094 lbs. Brown Swiss: 16,701 lbs. Guernsey: 14,070 lbs. Holstein: 20,318 lbs. Jersey: 14,275 lbs. Milking Shorthorn: 13,930 lb…s. Red and White Holstein: 19,967 lbs. (MORE)
A lactating cow, dairy or no, typically drinks around 10% of her body weight in water per day.
A young cow can produce 25 gallons of milk a week. A jersey cow, 28 gallons per week. Guess it depends on the size of the cow. And no, cows that stand in the shade do NOT give chocolate milk. :) My parents Holsteins were giving approximately 40-49 gal a week. My Jersey on silage will produce 35gal p…er week. On grain and hay she will produce 28gal per week. How much a cow produces depends a lot on what they are being fed and how stressed they are. A happy cow will give more milk than an unhappy cow, and the higher the quality of the feed, the more milk they are able to produce. (MORE)
Water intake depends on many factors including humidity and airtemperature, salinity of the feed, physiological needs/stressors,size of the cow, how much milk that cow produces per milking or perday, location (as in latitude and climate), etc. This means that numbers will vary. Some sources say two… gallons,others claim as much as ten. (MORE)

Depending on the breed of the cow,the food available and how long the cow is in lactation (eg a split farming system with a genetically breed cow for production and not reproduction) a cow could produce anywhere from 350 - 700 KgMS/yr and either side of this by 100kgMS. A high producing cow could pr…oduce more, it really depends on the system eg pasture based or supplement based. 500KgMS/cow/yr is considered in NZ as a good cow but once again depends on the input feed. As a general rule production is 90% feed and 10% genetics. Hope this is of some help (MORE)
With this trick question, most people will say "Milk," (which is not true) just for the fun of the questioner catching the questionee off guard. Cows drink water, not milk.
No, kittens or adult cats should never be given cow's milk. Cats cannot digest the lactose found in cow's milk very well, and some can develop diarrhoea after ingesting it. This can be particularly risky in younger kittens, as diarrhoea can cause it to dehydrate quickly, which can be fatal if not tr…eated quickly. A much safer alternative is goat's milk or specially formulated cat or kitten milk that can be found from most pet stores and superstores. (MORE)
in fact a baby cow is called a calf, and yes they do drink their mothers milk the first few feedings of milk is called bee-stings its very nutrious for the calf but unsuitable for human consumption, a cows milk is suitable for human consumption 4-5 days after calving(giving birth)
Typically about 30 to 35 liters per day. Can be as high as 40 liters per day.
The majority of cows don't, actually. Rarely do you ever see such a thing occur, as recorded by those who post such a thing on YouTube. It's rare because it's not noticed by most people (unlike those few who recorded it and posted it to YouTube, making everyone think that it may be common). It's not… really a natural thing for any animal to do, since the milk from their udders are reserved for their young, not themselves. However, those that do drink from their own udders (and can only do so laying recumbant, not standing) is possibly because the udder is irritating them due to its fullness and they need to find some sort of relief to release this tension. Yet a cow that has mastitis would also find her udder to be irritating to them, and drinking the milk from an infected udder would not only be hurting herself which she doesn't like, but the milk itself wouldn't be tasting very good either! The problem with the above possibility, though, is that most cows that suckle from their own udder are not suffering from a full udder, but rather from a behavioural condition called stereotypie or a behavior abnormality. Most dairy cows are confined to a barn or stall and not allowed to fully express themselves as cows. Because of this, they develop behavioural abnormalities that are really difficult to curb. In horses, for example, common stereotypies are cribbing and weaving. In dairy cows, stereotypies may possibly include suckling their own udder, even when it's not full. However I say "possibly" because it's really not known why cows do this due to the fact that stereotypies in cows have not been studied as extensively as in other animals like horses, dogs and cats, and because this condition is considered rare, rare enough to have most people deny such a thing.

A cow will produce milk as much as her udder can hold, which depends on the breed. In reference to dairy breeds like Holsteins, this can be around 150 lbs per day for 10 months. For beef breeds like Angus, this can be around 40 to 50 lbs per day for 6 to 8 months.
Yes, definitely. Raw milk is supposed to be good for you, better than pasteurized milk from a conventional dairy. But note that you don't drink milk straight from a cow like a calf would. You just milk the cow into a cup or pail then drink it.
Stop giving him milk. He will drink water when he gets thirsty enough.Toughlove. It's for his own good.
Typically she'll drink around 7% of her body weight per day, more if she's eating drier or high saline feedstuffs.
They can, and many cats love the taste of milk, but its not good for them due to the lactose that is present in cow's milk. Many cats are lactose intolerant (they cannot digest it properly) so can get sick from ingesting it. Goats milk, or specially formulated cat milk do not have lactose in so are …perfectly safe. (MORE)
Ayrshire cattle will have an average milk yield of 15,094 lbs. Keeping in mind that this amount can change per cow, from area to area and from feed being digested.
No because cow milk has to much chemicals in to the milk to make it stay more than a day.
Cow milk is not so good for newborn piglets as it will cause indigestability to them. Even it is not a good substitute for pigmilk, can use after a few days
The United States, Canada, most of Europe and South America. The practice originated in western Europe and was exported as Europeans immigrated to other countries.
It certainly could help, yes - breast milk is very largely water, just like regular milk.
This will depend solely on the individual cow's ability to produce. Some cows will produce 48 kg of milk per day while others may give only 30 kg of milk per day.
Yes. Unless otherwise labeled, all the milk that is sold in your local grocery store comes from cows.
No. A tiger is better off drinking water, not cows milk. Most cats like tigers are lactose intolerant, so it will do more harm than good if a tiger drinks cows' milk.
depends on the feed quality, genetics and breed some produce 3 gallons a day but holstein have been known to produce+18 gallons a day.
Cows don't drink milk because they have no need for it. They're adults, not babies.
Maine Anjou are beef cattle, not dairy cattle, so the average milk production from an MA would probably be around 10 lbs per day, give or take a few pounds.
usually about anywhere from 50 to 60 pounds twice a day but if u have a good cow she will give 70 to 80
idk but a holstein can give up to 40 - 70 pounds per milk if you milk her 3times a day
On average, a bovine is expected to drink around 7 to 10% of its body weight per day, though this in itself is highly variable due to all sorts of factors like diet, time of year, physiological demands, humidity levels, etc.
A Limousin cow can be expected to produce as much as 10 to 20 lbs of milk per day.
Its depends on cow's health.some cow's are given more than 10 liters without any medicine.better food =more milk
A beef cow will produce around 10 lbs of milk per day--plus or minus--for her calf. Milk cows tend to produce a lot more, more often not for their calves.
Answer: None . No milk can produce a cow. But, a cow canproduce milk, and depending on the breed! A cow can produceanywhere from 10 to 20 pounds of milk per day (typical beef breeds)to over 40 pounds (typical dairy breeds like the Holstein).
