dc.description.abstract <p><strong>Objective:</strong> To determine how quickly all pigs visited the nipple cup drinker, the number and duration of visits, and water disappearance when water was restored after a 15-hour withholding period.</p> <p><strong>Materials and methods:</strong> A total of 184 seven-week-old pigs, identified with unique numbers, were commercially housed (23 pigs per pen), with one stainless steel nipple cup drinker per pen. Two treatments were compared in a crossover design: withheld (WH; four pens), pigs did not have access to water for 15 hours, and control (C; four pens), pigs had ad libitum access to water. One camera was positioned over each drinker to record visits lasting ≥ 5 seconds between 7:00 am and 1:00 pm on 2 consecutive days. One meter was installed on each water line to record water disappearance.</p> <p><strong>Results:</strong> All pigs from both treatments visited the nipple cup drinker during the 6-hour observation period. Control pigs made fewer total visits and spent less time at the nipple cup drinker than WH pigs (<em>P</em> < .05). The WH pigs spent longer at the water nipple and visited more often than the C pigs only for the first hour after water was restored (<em>P</em> < .05). Water disappearance was greater for the WH pigs (<em>P</em> < .05).</p> <p><strong>Implications:</strong> Under the conditions of this study, all pigs were able to visit the nipple cup drinker between 7:00 am and 1:00 pm; thus, withholding water for 15 hours to encourage consumption of medicated water is not recommended.</p>
