Now that cold weather is here, we begin our "water trek". For us this means carrying HOT water from the bathroom and neutralizing the cold water from the faucet. Our goats get tempered water 2x a day. It really helps keep the milk production up those last few weeks, and they all drink more which prevents urinary problems in bucks and heavy bred does. This is something that is often overlooked on small farms, so check your management. A source of neutral temperature water is important! Of course there are easier ways to accomplish this than carrying water out from the tub faucet, but that still works! :lol Totally worth the few extra minutes it takes and something anyone can do. Even the children can handle a small bucket. No excuses; find a way to get this done!
