Siting manure storages revisited

Other Titles

Abstract

To properly recycle nutrients, and to reduce the potential for nutrient and pathogen losses to the environment, dairy farmers will be planning, constructing and using more manure storage systems. Nutrients, particularly nitrogen, should be applied as close to the plant’s use as practical to reduce the potential for emission, runoff and leaching losses. To meet environmental objectives, manure spreading during winter and wet weather conditions that are higher risk for runoff risk are increasingly scrutinized and will likely be limited further. Dairy farmers should look for ways to store manure for longer periods (perhaps eight months or more) and in locations that allow quick and efficient spreading when the time is appropriate.
