The utilization of dried poultry manure as a feedstuff was critically evaluated based upon feeding trial results reported in the literature. The assessment indicated that this material can have value as a feedstuff. The maximum and optimum levels of incorporating dried poultry manure into laying hen and ruminant rations, on the basis of animal performance, varied from 5% to about 20% of a ration. Generally, the maximum level for incorporating dried poultry manure into rations was less than 20%. Dried poultry manure was found to have a monetary value as a feedstuff that equalled or exceeded its value as a fertilizer. (Copyright (c) Applied Science Publishers Ltd, England, 1983.)
