The average dairy cow eats about 25 kg of feed every day. Her diet is scientifically formulated to keep her in good condition while maximizing her milk production. The feed may include clover and alfalfa hay, ground oats, barley, corn, and soybeans, combined with a balance of vitamin and mineral supplements. She may drink between 80 and 160 litres of water a day.
