Animal agriculture is becoming more intense: Farms are larger, animals are more concentrated, and farms are operating on a smaller profit margin. Manure storage facilities will become more common for economic, environmental, and management reasons. Manure storage is mandatory in many areas. The safe, practical, and environmentally appropriate design of earthen structures will be an increasingly demanded service . Professional engineers will need to be able to meet this demand with the skills and knowledge necessary to develop the best product for their customers. This publication was written to help meet those needs. It provides technical information on earthen manure storage facilities. It does not contain standards for these systems, nor does it contain rules or regulations pertaining to the systems. The publication will be useful to those involved in the planning, design, construction, operation, maintenance, and regulation of earthen manure storage facilities. DUE TO OUSTANDING COPYRIGHT ISSUES OR CLEARLY IDENTIFIED OUT-OF-DATE PRACTICES (E.G. SAFETY CONCERNS), ONLY THE FRONT MATTER (E.G. COVER, ToC, ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS, ETC) ARE PROVIDED HERE AT THIS TIME.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 100 page publication (NRAES-109) was originally published by the Natural Resource, Agriculture, and Engineering Service (NRAES, previously known as the Northeast Regional Agricultural 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.
