Contents Notes
Detailed field and laboratory studies of five feedlots were conducted to determine field seepage rates and distributive geometry of infiltrated runoff. Practical field seepage rates at these sites ranged from 2 to 20 feet/year. Dispersal rates of ions in the groundwater zone varied from 45 to 400 feet/year. Nitrogen (NOb3s, NOb2s, NHb4s, Org-N) and common chemical parameters (Ca, Mg, Na, K, Cl, SOb4s, TDS, pH, and conductance) were determined in cores and groundwater samples; based on groundwater analyses from 80 Texas High Plains feedlots, rates of concentration of NOb3s-N and Cl in groundwater beneath feedlots range from 0.07 to 0.4 p.p.m. per year, and average 0.17 p.p.m. per year.
