By Ted McCollum III, PHD, PAS-ACAN, Extension Beef Cattle Specialist

As the drought continues and temperatures remain above normal, cattle water becomes of greater concern. We have recent reports of cattle deaths in or around watering points suggesting death associated with water consump tion. Dr. Robert Sprowls from the Texas Veterinary Medical Diagnostic Laboratory in Amarillo is also seeing more cas es than normal associated with water.

1. Water deprivation occurs when cattle cannot consume an adequate amount of water. Water is a nutrient just as protein, vitamins and minerals and reduced water intake results in reduced performance. Water deprivation can be fatal or can lead to circumstances that can be fatal (see wa ter intoxication below).

Couple the low water intake from forage with the higher, more stressful temperatures this summer and intake of water from drinking sources takes on greater importance than “normal” years or even years with hot stressful tem peratures but with green forage that can be grazed.

Most would immediately associate this with a well that cannot pump enough water to keep up with cattle needs, or a breakdown of a well or watering system, or a pond or creek drying up. These certainly are of great concern but water deprivation can occur in circumstances when we perceive there is an adequate amount of water available.

PAGE 10 Fall, 2022• SIMBRAH World


The lack of water from forage is more important than we credit. How many people would think of going out to work for a few hours without a jug of water to drink from peri odically? The water in the grazed forage is the cow’s “jug of water” that rehydrates her while she is out on the range or pasture. Heat stress can be less of a problem in years when the forage is actively growing and green even though ambient temperatures may be high because of water intake from grazed forage. But this year is different. The risk of heat stress is greater because we have high am bient temperatures combined with dry dead forage. The cow’s “jug of water” is relatively empty this year and the risk of heat stress and water-related problems are greater.

Dr. Sprowls indicated that water deprivation, water intox ication and water quality all play a role in cases they have investigated. These three may act independently but of ten they are interrelated.

Because little or no forage growth has occurred this year, the forage contains very low amounts of water. An 1150 lb. cow grazing green forage containing 50 to 70% moisture consumes about 30 to 70 lbs. of water daily (the equivalent of about 3.5 to 8.4 gallons) from the forage she grazes. This year, as a result of no forage growth and a relatively low intake of dry forage, daily water consumption from grazed forage is probably around 3 to 5 lbs. (or 0.4 to 0.6 gallons).

• When working cattle, do not hold them for long periods in pens without water

Cattle behavior may lead to water deprivation. Cattle de velop preferences for grazing sites, loafing areas, and, if more than one watering point is available, they may de velop a preferred watering location in a landscape. So, a grazing area with multiple watering points may appear to have an adequate supply of water. However, if cattle have a preferred site and that site breaks down, dries up, or the water quality declines and reduces consumption, then wa ter deprivation will occur.

• If deaths are occurring and water is a suspect, do not initially rule out any aspects of deprivation, intoxication, water quality, or toxic plants. Reexamine what has occurred for the few days leading up to the deaths and then try to identify the causes.

• If a grazing area has multiple water sources and one or more of those breaks down, dries up, etc., it may be necessary to push cattle to the other sources of water

Fall, 2022SIMBRAH World •

• When moving cattle to new pastures, always drive them to the water sources so they know where the water is located

Limitingdeprivation.water intake when cattle are moved to a new water source may be next to impossible. But if cattle are dehydrated, it may be worth the effort to allow them to drink but then find a way to limit the amount immediately 3.consumed.Waterquality can directly cause problems in cattle or may indirectly cause problems. High consumption of so dium, calcium, magnesium salts and sulfates can lead to unthriftiness and in some cases can be fatal. Nitrates in the water may also be of concern. Coupled with reduced water intake these issues can become even more of a concern. Water quality can indirectly affect performance and health by reducing water consumption which exacerbates heat stress and can lead to water intox ication once cattle locate or can access palatable water. Hot sunny days and warm stagnant water lead to bluegreen algae blooms. Some species of blue-green algae are toxic. Consumption of the algae or the toxins from the al gae can be fatal. The dead animals are usually found close to the watering site. Oftentimes the algae is concentrat ed on the downwind side of the pond as a result of wave action. Dead rodents, birds or fish along the downwind side of the pond may indicate the presence of blue-green algae. Limiting access to the downwind side of the pond by cattle may reduce risk of toxicity. Copper sulfate can be used to limit algae growth but caution must be exercised because excess copper sulfate can lead to stream pollu tion and can harm fish and plant life.

•Considerations:Aspondsdraw down, check water quality to determine if problems may be present

• Observe cattle at watering sites to see if they are readily consuming the water

• Make certain weaned calves are familiar with water locations

4. Don’t rule out toxic plants that may be present around watering locations. The immediate area around ponds and tank overflows is disturbed and the moisture profile in the soil is better than out in the pasture. Even though drought conditions exist, disturbance and moisture are conducive to weed growth. Pigweed, kochia, Russian thistle, dock, buffalo burrs, etc. can grow in these areas, they are green, and may be attractive to cattle. If cattle deaths are occur ring, see what has been grazed off around the watering area. Water may not be the culprit.

• As ponds draw down, salt and other inorganic materials become more concentrated in the water. It may be necessary to remove salt licks from the pastures to avoid salt toxicity and/or reduced water consumption

• Realize that introducing cattle to water after a period of reduced water intake has risks

Water quality can affect palatability of water and reduce consumption. In some cases, consumption may cease. So, the supply of water may be adequate but the cattle are de prived because they cannot or will not consume enough of the water. Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) and Total Soluble Salts (TSS) are two water quality measures that in them selves can lead to poor performance and possibly death. But TDS and TSS are also related to water intake. As the concentrations increase, water intake is reduced. Salinity of water limits intake just as salt in feeds can limit intake. Hence water quality can lead to water deprivation.

Cattle with no familiarity of a grazing area can also suffer deprivation. Do not assume cattle will find water. When cattle are moved to new pastures, take them to water and observe their consumption to determine if they willing consume the water.

• Do not use salt-limited feeds if water intake is a concern

2. Water intoxication occurs when cattle (or any other an imal, including humans) overconsume water and usually occurs following a period of reduced water consumption or increased water loss from the body. The cattle are de hydrated and consume an excessive amount of water. Electrolyte balance in the body is disrupted and water in toxication occurs and can be fatal. In cases of acute water intoxication, dead cattle will be found near the watering Watersite. intoxication typically follows water deprivation. So, a key to avoiding water intoxication is avoiding water

Here are a few tips that might aid cost conscientious producers. Reduce commodity shrink and feed waste. How much of the commodities you purchase are lost in storage and han dling before they make it into the bunk? On most oper ations, these losses range from 2‐10% depending on the commodity. Although these losses are minimal, they do add up (1% of a ton = 20 lbs; 1% of 20 tons = 400 lbs.). The cost associated with minimal losses may add substantial cost to a commodity (400 lbs. at $250/ton = $50 or $2.50/ ton). These losses often occur when commodities are han dled or being loaded into feed mixers. The key to reducing commodity loss comes down to increased awareness.

•• •••

Evaluate commodities on a cost per unit of energy or crude protein basis. These calculations should be done on a dry matter basis to facilitate an appropriate com parison between dry commodities, such as corn, and wet commodities, such as silage or wet distiller’s grains.

Maximize use of commodities or ration ingredients pro duced on‐farm. I am sure there are many different ver sions of the old saying “the best way to make a profit with land and livestock is to walk the crops off the farm”. On‐farm commodities, especially forages, are usually more cost‐effective than purchased commodities. Increasing the inclusion of on‐farm produced commodities in the diet or even including a small amount of lower‐cost in gredients like straw may reduce ration costs. However, the impacts of these changes must be evaluated against cattle performance.

Reducing Nutrient Demand

PAGE 14 Fall, 2022• SIMBRAH World

1. Sort Cows by Expected Nutrient Requirements. As previously mentioned, sorting cows by physiological status can result in a significant improvement in efficiency of feed and hay use. To demonstrate the physiological sta tus x nutrient requirement interaction, a 5 year old, 1150 lb. F1 cow is used as an example in Table 2. Obviously, attempting to feed these two cows in the same group will probably result in a) an over-fed dry cow (inefficient use of purchased feed/hay) or, b) an under-fed lactating cow (accelerated body condition loss and/or restricted milk production, resulting in depressed calf growth rate).

Managing the Consequences of Drought

The preferred option would be to put cows in a small pas ture or trap; the least productive area should be consid ered so as to minimize damage to the forage resource in the more productive pastures. If small pastures/traps are not available, selected water troughs can be turned off or ponds fenced off and thereby concentrate animals near available water. Caution: Concentration of animals (includ ing wildlife) around water will increase the demand placed on that water supply and can result in increased disease transmission from wildlife to livestock. In addition, as sur face water supplies decline, be conscious of water quality and temperature. Regardless of where cattle are pastured, shade and protection from inclement weather should be

1. Minimize the activity (travel) of cattle. The energy re quired for maintenance is significantly affected by activity as indicated below.

EnergyConfinedSaved by confinement 1.710.68.9(16%)

The drought which started in early 2022 has left producers with very little, if any hay and pastures are dried up as well.

2. Some thought has been given to the economics of retaining the “nucleus” herd versus complete cattle liquidation.

Table 1. Effect of Activity on Maintenance Energy Requirement Location NEm, Mcal/day* Large Pasture; Low Forage Availability

Reducing Nutrient Demand, Optimizing Feed Use, and Reducing Management Expenses by Rick Machen, Ph.D., Former Extension Livestock Specialist, Texas A&M University

Critical Prerequisites

4. Moving the cows to leased grazing or a confinement feeding operation is not an option.

1. Cows (including heifers) have been culled to remove those with faults and those with limited immediate production potential.

2. Protect the long term productivity of the forage re source. Complete removal of standing biomass: a) reduces the ability of the soil to capture rainfall when it comes and b) reduces the ability of the grass to respond when soil moisture is available. Grasses often attempt to respond to small, seemingly insignificant rainfall events - if livestock are there to nip off the green growth, plant health and root vitality are impacted. Concentration of wildlife as a result of water management (previously mentioned) could help to alleviate the grazing pressure applied by wildlife on grass regrowth.

It goes without saying that, during drought, both the forage resource and livestock performance suffer. There fore, reduction of the “wear and tear” on both should be a drought management consideration. If forage availabil ity across the ranch is less than adequate to meet grazing animal needs, consider concentration of the cattle in one pasture or trap. By doing so, stockmen can:

Remember also that if high-energy grain supplements are chosen to compensate for short grass (probably being fed at more than 2 to 3 pounds per day), feeding frequen cy may affect animal performance. Feed grain supple ments daily (as opposed to skipping days and increasing amounts). This will help keep acidosis problems in check and minimize the inhibitory effects of grain on digestibility of pasture forage.

As an alternative, supplements that are high in digestible fiber, such as wheat mids, soybean hulls, peanut skins, etc., can also be used to extend forage supplies. These sup plements provide energy, but because they are lower in starch, they lessen undesirable effects on the digestibility of pasture forage.

When forage quality and/or quantity is affected by drought, livestock producers are usually faced with decisions about supplemental feeding. First, they must determine whether they can afford to supplement, and if so, then decide what to supplement and how to manage feeding. If the drought continues or worsens, they will also need to decide when to stop supplementing and start selling live stock. Whether to supplement When deciding whether or not to feed during a drought, the first question a producer should ask is, “Can I afford to meet the animal’s nutrient requirements?” rather than, “How much can I afford to spend on feed?” (and hope that whatever is in it does the job).

The goal of a supplemental feeding program is to augment a forage-based diet. Therefore, having a proper stocking rate is critical, because even in drought situations, the ma jority of dry matter consumed by livestock should come from pasture forage. This typically means adjusting stocking rate to a level ap propriate for forage supply, and then supplementing pro tein to improve diet quality and forage consumption. In planning, remember that an average 1,000-pound cow will consume 20 to 30 pounds of dry forage per day or 2 to 3 percent of her body weight.

Supplementation in relation to forage quality and quantity

By Bruce B. Carpenter and Charles R. Hart, Assistant Professor and Extension Livestock Specialist, Associate Professor and Extension Range Specialist; The Texas A&M University System

Either hay or high energy supplements may be used to extend or partially replace existing forage supplies. Note, however, that this comes at higher cost, and when more than 3 pounds of high energy supplements are used, it re sults in lower efficiency of feed conversion. Therefore, this technique is probably best reserved for spe cific, short-term situations. Supplementing large amounts of energy in any form for long periods is usually uneco nomical.

PAGE 18 Fall, 2022• SIMBRAH World Supplemental Feeding

A good place to start is with a monitoring program for an imal body condition. As always, this should be a routine part of management. To further define what specific di etary nutrients may be lacking and in turn, what kind and how much of the supplement might remedy the problem, livestock managers can use additional tools such as forage testing and fecal analysis. Results of these tests can indi cate the diet quality of free-ranging animals.

For more information, see Extension publication B-6067, Supplementation Strategies for Beef Cattle. What to supplement When evaluating supplements, remember that there are no “magic bullets.” Animals will perform as long as the sup plement compensates for the nutrients that are lacking in

If protein were the only concern, then the 38 percent cube would be the better buy. However, if grass is not only dor mant but also in short supply, then the 20 per- cent cube, fed at twice the rate, would probably be a more complete feed because it would provide some extra energy as well. Note however, that this would add 30 percent to the over all cost of the supplemental feeding program.

Be cautious: Some pre-formulated molasses supplements may use high levels of nonprotein nitrogen (NPN), such as urea, as their primary “protein” source. High NPN supple ments are not drought supplements. If and when they are used, it should be in situations such as this: forage is abun dant, but dormant; dietary protein requirements are low (dry mature females); and protein deficiency is only minor.

For example: You are comparing two types of cubes to add crude protein to the livestock diet. One cube contains 38 percent crude protein, the other 20 percent. Which is the better buy?

The form of supplement—be it block, tub, cube, meal, etc.—is unimportant as long as the animal consumes enough of it to compensate for nutrients lacking in the pasture diet. If animal supplemental requirements are par ticularly high, some types of self-fed supplements may lim it intake to a level below what is needed.

First, calculate the cost per pound of crude protein. The 38-percent cube provides 760 pounds of crude protein per ton of bulk feed; at $280 per ton, it costs $0.37 to pro vide a pound of protein. The 20 percent cube provides 400 pounds of actual protein per ton of bulk feed; at $210 per ton, it costs $0.53 to provide a pound of crude protein.

POOL FARMS Josh, Heather, Jarrett and Jess Pool • Henderson, Texas Josh 903/646-3123 • Heather 903/557-0877 Pool_heather@hotmail.com A dry cow requires a minimum of 7 percent crude pro tein in her diet just to keep the digestive system microbes healthy and working on forage digestion. Therefore, the first limiting nutrient in dormant or drought-stressed for age is usually protein. When evaluating supplements, the most important fac tors to consider are nutrient content and price per pound of nutrient(s) in the supplement. To choose the right one for your herd, you need to not only calculate the cost per pound of supplement, but also consider the supply and quality of available forage.

Molasses is another energy supplement that is often used to stretch forage supplies. It is convenient because it can be self-fed, and in most cases it also contains some type of protein additive.

Other feed management tips include: Buy and store feed in bulk. You can sometimes trim a few dollars by forward contracting. Feed protein supplements less often. Supplements high in natural protein may be fed as infrequently as twice or even once per week. Conversely, feed high-energy sup plements daily to avoid chances of acidosis.

Use a good 1:1 calcium-to-phosphorus mineral. Inject vitamin A or provide it in frequently fed supple ments if it has been more than 3 to 4 months since the diet has included any green forage.
