Animal Manure: Production, Characteristics, Environmental Concerns, and Management

Paulo Pagliari, Zhongqi He, Heidi M. Waldrip

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

The majority of meat, milk, and eggs consumed in the United States are produced in concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFO). With concentrated animal operations, in turn comes concentrated manure accumulation, which can pose a threat of contamination of air, soil, and water if improperly managed. Animal Manure: Production, Characteristics, Environmental Concerns, and Management navigates these important environmental concerns while detailing opportunities for environmentally and economically beneficial utilization.
