MetadataShow full item record
Pronto, Jennifer; Gooch, Curt
The previous three fact sheets of the series covered the basics of manure odor, human physiology of the sense of smell, and the options for quantifying manure-based odors. After understanding these initial concepts, it is possible to explore the potential strategies to reduce and control odor on the farm. Some more commonly used manure management strategies can effectively control odor from manure storages. Which strategy a farm chooses depends on budget, degree of need for odor control, energy use, and overall management needs.
