Guideline for Dairy Manure Management from Barn to Storage (NRAES 108/DPC 27 - FRONT MATTER ONLY)
Weeks, Stanley A.; Brugger, Michael F.; Northeast Regional Agricultural Engineering Service
This Guideline provides information on manure management from barn to storage, with insight on planning and impementation. It is important to plan ahead for small and large improvements in dairy manure systems to predict the costs, risks, savings, and operating changes that will occur. There are many options, thus careful and objective planning is a key to success. DUE TO OUSTANDING COPYRIGHT ISSUES OR CLEARLY IDENTIFIED OUT-OF-DATE PRACTICES (E.G. SAFETY CONCERNS), ONLY THE FRONT MATTER (E.G. COVER, ToC, ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS, ETC) ARE PROVIDED HERE AT THIS TIME.

This 36 page publication (NRAES-108/DPC 27) was originally published (in cooperation with the Dairy Poliocies Council) by the Northeast Regional Agricultural Engineering Service (NRAES, later known as the Natural Resource, Agriculture, and Engineering Service), a multi-university program in the Northeast US disbanded in 2011. Plant and Life Sciences Publishing (PALS) was subsequently formed to manage the NRAES catalog. Ceasing operations in 2018, PALS was a program of the Department of Horticulture in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS) at Cornell University. PALS assisted university faculty in publishing, marketing and distributing books for small farmers, gardeners, land owners, workshops, college courses, and consumers.
