Water, as a common and fundamental consumable for cattle farming activities, is not uniformly distributed either spatially or temporally. Awareness of the probability of the occurrence of water shortage in the region makes it possible to plan for better use of the water resources. The study will be based on daily data of rainfall and evapotranspiration, which will be estimated by the FAO method using daily measurements of meteorological elements. The water deficit will be estimated based on a sequential hydric balance. (AU)
