Data suggests that the properties of magnetically treated water are different from those of untreated water. This fact is usually attributed to the weaknesses of intermolecular interactions (hydrogen bonds) and nucleation processes (effect of impurity, frequency and growth of nuclei). Water treatment by magnetic field is an attractive but still controversial issue concerning to animal production.The purpose of the present study was to investigate the effects of water treatment by magnetic field on nitrogen excretion in livestock.There were evaluated milk production, milk composition, blood biochemical profile, blood gas level and nitrogen balance. We found increases in urea blood, urea milk and decreases nitrogen in urine. These effects were attributed due metabolic alkalosis and reduced glutamine metabolism in kidney to Bicarbonate buffer production. We concluded that the treated water by magnetic field provides an effective way to reduce nitrogen animal excretion and contributing to mitigate environmental impact in livestock.
