This course aims to help beef cattle producers protect Texas waterways from contamination that is linked with the production of livestock. These contaminations may also pose a health risk to Texas citizens.

This course includes voluntary conservation practices along with sources for technical and financial assistance designed to reduce pollutants such as fecal bacteria in our waterways as well as enhance water conservation, forage production, and reduce soil erosion. We hope that landowners and livestock producers find the information helpful in their pursuit of being the best natural resource stewards they can be.


  • Explain the value of water quality
  • Identify major water quality regulations in Texas
  • Explain the impacts of beef cattle on water quality
  • Implement best management practices to reduce bacterial contamination in runoff.
