Environmental, economic, and physical considerations in liquid handling of dairy cattle manure
Casler, G.; LaDue, E.
Liquid systems to handle the manure from dairy cattle have been proposed both as economically efficient methods of handling and to alleviate some of the environmental problems associated with the manure. With enough storage capacity to eliminate spreading on frozen ground, a liquid system would tend to reduce runoff of manure during the winter and spring, thereby reducing loss of nutrients and organic matter, which should be of benefit to both farmers and the rest of society.
