Water Management & Raising Cattle

Share this FACT today: Farmers and ranchers are committed to water conservation and have, in fact, reduced the amount of water used to raise beef by 12% during the last 30 years! Today, it takes 441 gallons of water to produce a pound of boneless beef -- and that includes the water that the animals actually drink, in addition to the water used to irrigate pastures where cattle graze; that used to grow crops that the cattle are red; and the water used in processing the beef.
