Do Young Calves Drink Water?

That is the question for research done in Germany.

The results are at this link

The video is less than 2 minutes - calves with ad lib access to milk were still drinking 0.8 litres of water daily at 2 weeks. Calves with limited access to milk were drinking almost twice as much.

Lesson? Provide ad lib access to water for calves from day 2! Period.
