Lower Meat Consumption To Lessen Water Usage By: Andy Clarke

Water usages in the livestock industry include:

  • Washing of animals, machinery, and products
  • Watering of pasture
  • Additional water usage in milk production

This all adds up to 1,799 gallons of water for every pound of beef produced

Whereas water used for crops is more directly useful

Soybeans vs. Beef

  • Soybeans use 21 times less water but contain pound for pound more protein than beef.

Therefore, by limiting their meat consumption, individuals will aid in the preservation of water.
