The amount of water a cow drinks per day depends on where it lives, the time of year, and the cow’s health and age. A lactating cow can drink between 11 and 17.5 gallons of water a day, whereas a heifer or non-lactating cow will drink between 6.0 and 14.5 gallons a day.
The amount of water drank in a day by a cow depends on factors such as age and milk production. A milk-producing cow consumes much more water than a dry cow. According to a study done in Ontario, Canada, dairy calves (age 1 to 4 months) typically drink 9 liters of water a day. Dairy hefers (5 to 24 months) drink an average of 25 liters a day. Milking cows drink about 115 liters a day, and dry cows drink 41 liters.
