How many litres of water does it take to produce 1kg of beef?

A) 50 L
B) 100 L
C) 500 L
D) 50 000 L

Answer

D) 50,000 L

Farming accounts for 70 per cent of water use in Australia and globally. It takes a lot of land, water and chemicals to produce enough grain to feed cattle to make beef. 

By eating even one less meat meal per week, you can reduce your environmental impact. The money you save can go towards more organic food, and local produce.
