  • How to Keep Livestock Cool in Hot Weather

    During the summer months when high temperatures and humidity combine, keeping your livestock cool and comfortable is an absolute necessity. How to keep animals cool in hot weather should be a priority. Otherwise, many can succumb to heat related stress, exhaustion, stroke—and unfortunately, death. Enclosed spaces without proper ventilation will result in serious problems for you, your ...

  • Antibiotics in groundwater under locations with high livestock density in Germany

    Antibiotics are deployed in large quantities both in human and in veterinary medicine. Studies show that antibiotic residues occur in the environment (e.g. soil and surface waters). In some cases they were also detected in ground and drinking water. However, the degree of groundwater pollution by antibiotic residues from livestock farming is unknown. Therefore, the federal environment agency ...

  • Soil quality and corn yield under crop–livestock integration in Illinois

    Compared with traditional cropping systems, integrated crop–livestock systems have shown greater efficiency in improving soil quality and crop yield. The objective of this study was to determine how an integrated crop–livestock system affected soil properties and corn (Zea mays L.) yield when compared with continuous corn (CC). The study was conducted from 2004–2008 on a large-scale research farm ...

  • Adsorptive removal of sulfonamide antibiotics in livestock urine using the high-silica zeolite HSZ-385

    The adsorptive removal of seven sulfonamide antibiotics using the high-silica zeolite HSZ-385 from distilled water, synthetic urine and real porcine urine was investigated. The pH greatly affected the adsorption efficiency, and the amounts of all sulfonamide antibiotics adsorbed on HSZ-385 decreased at alkaline conditions compared with that at neutral conditions. During storage, the pH and ...

  • Eco-physiological characteristics of Pistia stratiotes and its removal of pollutants from livestock wastewater

    The effectiveness of water lettuce in removing pollutants including organic pollutants, nitrogen (NH3-N) and total phosphorus (TP) from livestock wastewater along with the physiological effects and their correlations, was studied for the first time. The results showed that the water lettuce had higher removal efficiency with low concentrations of livestock wastewater. The removal efficiency of ...

  • Water sharing in the Upper Niger Basin

    Mali is facing a huge challenge. Promotion of food security is of top priority for which a further expansion of Office du Niger is one of the most promising options. This implies land development and additional water extraction from the Niger. At the same time water is needed for the booming energy demand. Water, however, is limitedly available and crucial to other sectors of the environment, not ...

  • JM Farm Pond Water Case Study

    JM Farms, located in Kentucky, had been experiencing significant buildup of biofilm and slime in the water system. The biofilm and slime buildup led to water with a poor taste and odor, decreased water and feed consumption, longer flock cycles and fewer-than-expected head sold, which resulted lower revenue for the farm. Understanding the impact that better treated water can have on the key ...

  • More water flows from Western Sudan as virtual water than the flow of the River Nile in former Sudan

    This study argues that by mobilising ‘social resources’, communities in water-scarce, semi-arid areas can not only successfully sustain a livelihood, but they can also play an important role in the water budget of their semi-arid regions. The pastoralist communities in the Darfur region of west Sudan utilise the limited volumes of green – root-zone – water in the soil to rear livestock. They ...

  • Transport of lincomycin to surface and ground water from manure-amended cropland

    Livestock manure containing antimicrobials becomes a possible source of these compounds to surface and ground waters when applied to cropland as a nutrient source. The potential for transport of the veterinary antimicrobial lincomycin to surface waters via surface runoff and to leach to ground water was assessed by monitoring manure-amended soil, simulated rainfall runoff, snowmelt runoff, and ...

  • Land, water, and forests : assets for climate resilient development in Africa

    Africa is a continent rich in natural resources. Its land, water, and forests underpin the sustained productivity of food crops and livestock on which millions of Africans depend directly for their livelihood and survival. These resources are major assets on which most countries depend for economic growth and sustainable development. In the face of growing climate change threats, such as ...

  • The role of constructed wetlands for biomass production within the water-soil-waste nexus

    The use of constructed wetlands for water pollution control has a long standing tradition in urban, peri-urban, rural, agricultural and mining environments. The capacity of wetland plants to take up nutrients and to filter organic matter has been widely discussed and presented in diverse fora and published in hundreds of articles. In an ever increasingly complex global world, constructed ...

  • Adsorptive removal of trace oxytetracycline from water by acid-modified zeolite: influencing factors

    Because of the wide use of antibiotics in the livestock industry, trace tetracycline antibiotics are frequently detected in swine wastewater and water bodies near pig farms. Based on natural zeolite, modified zeolite was synthesized by treatment with nitric acid. As one kind of typical tetracyclines, oxytetracycline (OTC) was chosen as the target adsorbate. Removal of trace OTC by modified ...

  • LA NIVELLE, France: Grand Systeme–Major agricultural pollution (unstable turbidity, pesticides and micro-organisms) and variation in water demand during the summer period.

    La Nivelle Ultrafiltration plant in the Basque country meets several constraints.The first is to provide a constant supply to the towns of Saint Jean de Luz, Ciboure and Urrugne, with the population varying from 20,000 to 100,000 inhabitants for a few months of the year.The second constraint is related to the agricultural and livestock farming activities. The quality of the raw water is not ...

  • Assessment of Trace‐Element Impacts on Agricultural Use of Water from the Dan River following the Eden Coal Ash Release

    Catastrophic events require rapid, scientifically sound decision‐making to mitigate impacts on human welfareandthe environment. The objective of this study was to analyze potential impacts of coal‐ash‐derived trace elements on agriculture following a 35,000‐tonne release of coal ash into the Dan River at the Duke Energy Steam Station in Eden, NC. We performed scenario calculations to assess ...

  • Arachidonic acid and fatty acid profiles as indicators of contamination from the leachates of animal carcasses

    Because many livestock with avian influenza and foot and mouth disease have been disposed of at landfills, underground water contamination is a big problem for people living near these landfills as well as burial sites. Biological oxygen demand (BOD), NH4, total dissolved solids (TDS), chloride and potassium have been used as markers of contamination from the leachates of animal carcasses. ...

  • Assessing the cost, effectiveness and acceptability of best management farming practices: a pluri-disciplinary approach

    The AgriBMPWater project has been imagined and built in a pluri-disciplinary approach and framework, with the study of the object 'BMPs' using several disciplines at the same time (hydrology, economy, sociology, geography and agronomy). The knowledge of the object in each discipline is deepened by a fertile multi-field contribution: borders of disciplines have been broken down, allowing ...
