The net revenue from manure management practices traditionally used by farmers in a ...

  • Effect of tillage and rainfall on transport of manure-applied cryptosporidium parvum oocysts through soil

    Received for publication September 30, 2008. Most waterborne outbreaks of cryptosporidiosis have been attributed to agricultural sources due to the high prevalence of Cryptosporidium oocysts in animal wastes and manure spreading on farmlands. No-till, an effective conservation practice, often results in soil having higher water infiltration and percolation rates than conventional tillage. We ...

  • Dietary forage impacts on dairy slurry nitrogen availability to corn

    Precise feeding of protein and mineral supplement can maintain high levels of milk production and reduce nutrient excretion in dairy manure and losses to the environment. No information is available on the impacts of feeding different silages to dairy cattle (Bos taurus) on manure N cycling in soils. Slurry from dairy cattle fed rations containing alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.; ALF), red clover ...
