Water use on nonirrigated pasture-based dairy farms: Combining detailed monitoring and modeling to set benchmarks.

Abstract

Water use in intensively managed, confinement dairy systems has been widely studied, but few reports exist regarding water use on pasture-based dairy farms. The objective of this study was to quantify the seasonal pattern of water use to develop a prediction model of water use for pasture-based dairy farms.
