Abstract
The effect of salt level of the ration for beef steers upon salinity of the waste and the effects of the applied waste upon the soil and upon crop production was investigated. In addition, the study was conducted in both covered and open feedlot pens to study the effect of shelter in a northern climate upon animal performance and waste characteristics. The field portion of the study included four rates of waste up to 179 MT/ha. applied to plots 0.02 ha. in size. Detailed soil analyses were made which included salinity, nutrients, cations, and the dispersion hazard as indicated by the level of exchangeable sodium. The levels of salt used in the ration appeared to have little or no effect on animal performance; however, the salinity and sodium levels of the waste were directly affected. The salinity level of the surface 30 cm of soil where high rates of waste were applied was sufficiently high to affect the growth of corn. The lack of leaching water caused a maximum effect of the applied waste in the surface layer.
