Recent awareness of environmental degradation coupled with ever increasing sizes of individual feedlots and related decreases in available land area for wastes disposal have placed emphasis on the environmental hazards associated with livestock feeding. Environmental pollution can be significantly reduced in the initial planning stages by adequate facility planning, management, and, most importantly, by proper site selection. Climatic, topographic, and local weather extremes of the general area, selected with regard to economic and market factors, should be considered when planning the type of feeding facility. The report discusses those basic considerations of site selection which are compatible with pollution control designs and which lessen the impact of other environmental hazards.
