Water Use on Canadian Dairy Farms

Research funded by Dairy Farmers of Canada and Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada set out to perform on-farm measurements of water-use that provides both Canadian-relevant benchmarks, as well as more detailed understanding of water dynamics. This research can inform decisions and policies about how water use could be improved.
