Use of Post Digested Separated Manure Solids as Freestall Bedding: A Case Study
Gooch, Curt; Hogan, Joseph; Glazier, Nancy; Noble, Robert
The goals of this paper are 1) to introduce, from an economic standpoint, why producers currently need to use post-digested separated manure solids in a cost-effective manner, and 2) to provide results from an on-farm pilot-scale study that looked at opportunistic pathogen concentrations present in various sampling points including freshly separated post-digested manure solids to those solids present in freestalls after a two to three day residence time.
