Water is a very essential key element in any dairy farm. Typically a cow drinks on average about 110 litres of water per day, thats a whole lot of water consumption for a herd size of 2500! At Unnati we take this requirement extremely seriously. Our insurance that we never run out of it ever is the redundant number of water sources that we have engineered on site. From widening the river to deepening the open well  and digging additional ponds to drilling additional borewells  we have done it all and  spared no effort  and are prepared to weather any prolonged periods of the harshest of droughts.

Current Water sources on site include :
  1. Farm Pond # 1 : Located next to Biogas plant
    1. Dimensions         : 36 (L) x 20 (W) x 5 (D) meters
    2. Capacity                 : 3,600 Cubic Meters
    3. Water Source      : 6 animal shed roof top water to be accumulated under the “rain-water-harvesting” scheme
