PAGE4 THE SUNDANCE TIMES JANUARY 18, 1979 Milmu E. Green unimzUy ~ Aseat, Crook County Water consumption is the s~e mest ~a= f~tor in li~ production and is pazticularly important when livestock water supplies are not of such quality as to be advantageous to proper maintenance. Beef consume m~vhere from 7-12 gallons of water per day, sheep- 1-4, and ~mfme, 3-5. Several per- ticular categories of poor quality water have been re- sesrched to determine their ~ aud effocts on aninml perfommnce. Saline wzS~ and ~ w~r will under certain cir- ~ cause an aninml to be qnito unthrifty from a feed e~cie,~y stendpomt as wull as show~ ~ im- i~cts en ~rt~ty rat~ and animal performance. SaUne or alkaline water can came toxicity ~ ~ex- cessive consumptkm of the w/~. Many times this h~ms becanse the anim~ do no like tbe wst~ or fmd mewWzr~e b~ rmd ~t~y mu~ drink. The aninml then ccummm qnite a brge 8mount of writer and in turn abmrbe enough m~zm~ and salt8 to upset the phymology of thek system. Nitrate poisoning is very common in poor quality water. Tbe ~ by which animals ere usually poohed by nitrates is the nitrate nitrogen is consumed and ~ into nitrites in the digestive system. Due to the unique ruminant sys- tem the nitrates are traus- formed by Dnmmn bacteria much more rapidly than the monogutric system. The nitrites have the capecity to. affect the oxygen carrying capacity of the blood and basically the animal msffo- cares. When is poor quality water toxic? As a general rule of thumb: 1( Saline water can be up to as much as 5,000 ppm but sbeuld baskaUy be in the neighborhood of 100- 3000 ppm for better efficiency; nitrates 100-300 ppm is sccept~le if the feed concentrates and forage are nitrogen fr~. If a producer is aware that the livestock feed which be is using has a relatively high nitrate con- tent, the water should be 100 ppm or below. The University of Wyo- ming has a water testing facilg~y which has been established for the use6 of I~Rdture producers to de- termine seine of the~ var- ious tozidties. Crook County produce~ are certainly urged to use this service to determine their water quality needs. on Rupp Hill early last Thursday.
