Cattle diet can impact manure quality and quantity, but has minimal impact on methane production from anaerobic digestion of manure. Quality of manure, measured as organic matter (OM) content, does affect methane production and is largely impacted by the environment cattle are housed in and methods used to collect manure. In three anaerobic digestion trials, as the amount of ash contamination of manure increased, or OM content of manure decreased, OM degradation and methane production decreased… CONTINUE READING
