Abstract: Water is a critical nutrient for livestock and poultry. As with feed ingredients, livestock water should meet the nutritional needs of the animal. An adequate and safe water supply is essential to the production of healthy livestock and poultry. Water that adversely affects the growth, reproduction, or productivity of livestock and poultry cannot be considered suitable. Although there is scant research data on the economic effects of water quality on livestock performance, logic tells us that farm water supplies, either surface or ground, should be protected against contamination from microorganisms, chemicals and other pollutants
