Guideline for Milking Center Wastewater (NRAES 115/DPC 15 - FRONT MATTER ONLY)
Wright, Peter; Graves, Robert E.; Brugger, Michael F.; Northeast Regional Agricultural Engineering Service
All dairy farms produce and then must dispose of wastewater from their milking centers. There is great variability in the quantity of wastewater produced as well as the concentration of contaminants from farm to farm. There are also a number of ways to treat the effluent. Each dairy farmer needs to evaluate the specific situation on their farm to determine the best treatment method for them. DUE TO OUSTANDING COPYRIGHT ISSUES OR CLEARLY IDENTIFIED OUT-OF-DATE PRACTICES (E.G. SAFETY CONCERNS), ONLY THE FRONT MATTER (E.G. COVER, ToC, ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS, ETC) ARE PROVIDED HERE AT THIS TIME. Print copies of this item can be purchased from the Dairy Practices Council: www.dairypc.org
This 34 page publication (NRAES-115/DPC-15) 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.
