Title: Animal waste management
Author: Boyles, Stephen
Description: AS-956; Management of animal waste is an important part of any livestock operation. Properly managed manure reduces wind and water erosion. The additional organic matter can increase the water·holding capacity of the soil and promote growth of beneficial soil organisms, resulting in improved soil fertility and crop yields. Inadequate manure management can impair soil fertility and result in water contamination. The effectiveness of individual waste handling systems varies greatly. Some waste management systems function properly to prevent water pollution and odor while others experience recurring difficulties. The following are some considerations for preventing ground and surface water contamination.
