Saving water in dairies

Under dry seasonal or drought conditions around South Africa, many farmers are looking at options to reduce their dairy water consumption.

The most efficient dairy sheds used under 2,000 litres of water per cow each year. At the other end of the scale, the most water used was 38,000 litres per cow each year – almost 20 times more than the best performers. The average was 9,600 litres per cow each year. This large variation in water use in dairies indicates that there are opportunities to save water and costs on many farms.
