The effects of water deprivation, rehydration and hyperhydration were investigated in the black Moroccan goat (Capra hircus). Mean daily water intake was 46 +/- 5 ml/kg in lactating and 36 +/- 4 ml/kg in non-lactating black Moroccan goats, and milk production 21 +/- 1 ml/kg. Mean urine excretion was 8 +/- 2 ml/kg body weight in both groups, and the daily water losses via evaporation and feces were estimated at 23 +/- 3 ml/kg during lactation and 28 +/- 4 ml/kg during non-lactation.
