Abstract
This manual was developed to describe and evaluate alternative systems and/or technologies currently used to handle wastes from livestock facilities of less than 1,000 animal units. The systems are evaluated with regard to controlling water pollution and odor nuisance. An economic analysis of alternative livestock waste management systems for dairy, beef, swine, sheep and poultry facilities is provided. The economic impact of water pollution control technologies is discussed. This manual is intended to be used by environmental planners, regulatory personnel, and livestock producers. The discussion and evaluation of waste management systems are related to the regional concentration of livestock species and to climatic constraints. The economic analysis of alternative waste systems is done for each species separately and considers fertilizer nutrient return as a benefit.
