The amount of water a cow drinks a day depends on its size and temperature. As weight and temperature increase so does water intake. The average is between 9 and 20 gallons a day.
The amount of water per cow varies based on different conditions. Depending on the weight of the cow, whether or not the cow is lactating, and the outside temperature, water intake fluctuates. Larger cows and lactating cows drink more, and water requirements also increase proportionally with temperature. According to the Nutrient Requirement for Beef Cattle, the estimates above are correct-for two cows that weigh 1,100 pounds and are in 70 degree conditions, the non-lactating cow will consume 9 gallons of water a day and the lactating one will consume 20 gallons.
