Process analysis of manure collection systems at dairy farms and case study of LWR manure treatment system
Authors: Yin, S.
Description: Large manure production from concentrated animal feeding operation (CAFO) is posing pressure on not only our environment also farm operation such as sand lanes and lagoons. However, there is almost no well accepted technology available for manure treatment. One main reason is that most of available technologies do not consider farm manure collection systems during design and operation. In this study, process analysis of manure collection systems of flush dairy and flush flume dairy is first carried out to help identify root causes of difficulty in manure treatment. Then, an evaluation of LWR manure treatment system is presented by site data from full-scale LWR systems at 2 dairy farms in Wisconsin and Michigan.
