Manure Management

Proper manure management techniques are part of responsible waste management practices.  A by-product of livestock operations, manure can be used as a nutrient input for crop production.  Manure must be stored and managed properly to avoid environmental impacts such as groundwater contamination.

Manure Storage

A well-planned manure storage system is an asset to any livestock operation. Livestock manure is a valuable fertilizer for farm crops and adequate storage is a key component of a sustainable agricultural enterprise.

Manure Handling Systems

Manure can be handled as a solid, semi-solid or liquid. Manure will vary in consistency depending on the type of management and animal housing.
