The report describes a study of atmospheric emissions of fugitive dusts and volatile products from beef cattle feedlots. Total particulate emissions are affected by feedlot area, cattle density in pens, wind speed, and the regional precipitation-evaporation index. The predominant volatile product, ammonia, constitutes 70% to 90% of the total gaseous emissions. Emissions from the beef cattle feeding industry constitute 0.35% of the national emissions of total particulates. Eight states have emissions of total dust which exceed 1.0% of the state total particulate emissions burden.
