This is my concern. From another thread ya'll might recall I fenced off a back 30 acres with electric. Havent let the cows out on days I work except today. All the other days I had to go down about 5pm and bring them home to drink water with some calling cubes on my ATV. The only water on the property is at the house. Our property is long and skinny and not all cleared out. So a 100 acres turns into a longer distance then a box shape property. A mixture of ravines, deer trails, woods and pasture so not a straight shot home. How long can a cow go without drinking? Is it normal for them not to come back throughout the day when far away? They used to come back mid day to drink when in the front 60. My concern is the dehydrated ones might not come due to the herd instinct. Never ran into this before. Its been in the mid 80's today. Any thoughts?
