Water consumption by sheep in 48-h periods was measured in three replicated experiments. Intake was expressed as ml X kg body weight-.73 X d-1 and treatments were compared with intake of tap water or distilled water in no-choice situations. Neutralizing two acid mine drainage (AMD) polluted waters having pH values of 2.4 and 2.8, with Ca(OH)2 did not make either as acceptable to sheep as unpolluted water (P less than .01). Simulating AMD with sources of H+, HSO4-, SO4 =, Fe , Al++, Mn++, Zn… CONTINUE READING
