Poultry Waste Management Handbook (NRAES 132 - FRONT MATTER ONLY)
Collins, Eldridge; Barker, James C.; Carr, Lewis E.; Brodie, Herbert L.; Martin, John H.
Waste management has been a concern in poultry operations for many years. Problems with proper storage, handling, management, and utilization of byproducts of production have come to the forefront in planning, establishing, and operating poultry farms. In addition, growers have become sensitive to the potential for nuisance litigation should their farms generate odors, insects and vermin, or runoff that offends neighbors. This publication covers all aspects of solid, semisolid, and liquid poultry waste management, including: manure production and characteristics, environmental regulations and hazards, poultry housing design and waste management, manure storage systems, waste treatment (including composting, anaerobic/facultative lagoons, anaerobic digestion, and incineration), nutrient management, application equipment, dead bird management, and alternative uses for manure (for example, in fertilizers, as ruminant feed, and in compost for growing mushrooms). Waste management has been a concern in poultry operations for many years. Problems with storing, handling, managing, and utilizing the byproducts of production have come to the forefront in planning, establishing, and operating poultry farms. Poultry growers have become sensitive to potential nuisance litigation should their farms generate odors, problems with insects and vermin, leachate, or runoff that offends neighbors or poses a risk to the environment. This book was written to aid growers and their advisers in designing and implementing effective waste management plans for poultry operations. The Poultry Waste Management Handbook covers all aspects of solid, semi-solid, and liquid poultry waste management - from manure production to utilization. The publication will be a valuable resource for producers, cooperative extension educators, manure management consultants, regulatory agencies, and soil and water conservation district staff.
