Sources for Livestock Water

Water for livestock is usually provided by low cost systems using ground or surface water. These systems can allow water use at the source or by moving water to stock troughs.

Information is available in a factsheet which provides a table that looks at three types of water sources and briefly compares access methods, as well as advantages and disadvantages of each method.

The factsheet is available from the Sustainable Agriculture Management Branch website of the Ministry of Agriculture.
