Abstract The objectives of this research project were to (a) construct an inexpensive storage facility for solid dairy cow manure, (b) evaluate its performance and the extent of pollutants in runoff from storage facilities, and (c) determine current manure handling practices in Vermont and dairy farmers' attitudes and expectations with regard to possible future regulations on manure handling. A storage facility was constructed at the University of Vermont and runoff from the site was channeled through sampling huts. A second site was established on a dairy farm in North Hero, Vermont. Runoff from the stacked manure was sampled weekly. The quality and quantity of runoff from the storage sites indicate a substantial potential to pollute. Runoff from open stacks of manure should, therefore, be contained in a lagoon and irrigated on cropland. Alternately, runoff could be eliminated by covering the manure. A survey of Vermont commercial dairy farmers (20 or more milking cows) indicated that most felt they could not afford the cost of changing manure handling systems.
