Contents Notes
At a beef slaughtering plant, the kill capacity can be 250 animals per hour. In a ten-hour day this represents a tremendous quantity of blood, paunch, and manure, which must be disposed of in such a way so as not to further tax the waste-carrying capacity of the nearby rivers or to increase the ever growing problem of pollution of air, land, and water. Thus it was decided to test facilities for the drying of the whole blood and the paunch contents of rumen generated in the slaughtering operation. The manure would be disposed of directly for agricultural fertilizer. The project demonstrates the economic and technical feasibility of completely separating the blood and rumen generated in the slaughter operation, and drying of these materials with a view toward the sale of the dehydrated products as animal feeds or for feed additives.
