Though availability of good and optimal quality water is essential to animal health, a basic necessity and a component for effective farm operations, it is often the most neglected factor. Lack of water hygiene depresses production of livestock rapidly and seriously. In many rural areas, farms and livestock enterprises' water quality is poor, affected by pollution or slightly tolerable. There is remarkably insufficient recent information on many aspects of water quality issues in cattle livestock. Without comparative research using today's high performance technics, interpretation of water quality data may be incorrect. For this reason, it is essential that these and similar studies be carried out carefully, that the water quality and its effects can be monitored regularly. The ultimate goal of the study undertaken here is to provide information on the quality, problems and pollutants of drinking water in livestock using various original research and resources, along with the research findings presented here.
