Abstract
A study was conducted to determine the effects of beef feedlot manure application rate on corn forage yield, properties of soil, and quality of surface runoff from irrigation and precipitation. The project was located at a commercial beef feedlot in southcentral Kansas. Laboratory and field studies were made on a proportional sampler for sampling runoff. The principle of the sampler which uses orifices for dividing the flow appeared sound. However, additional development is necessary before the sampler can be considered operational. Quality of runoff from land receiving annual applications of manure did not correlate with manure application rate. Concentrations of pollutants varied greatly between runoff events and concentrations in runoff from land receiving no manure was relatively high. Corn forage yields increased as manure application rate increased up to rates of about 100 metric tons per hectare per year. Annual manure applications of up to 50 metric tons per hectare did not lead to harmful levels of nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, or magnesium. Concentrations of calcium decreased regardless of manure application rate.
