Emissions of atmospheric ammonia–nitrogen (NH3–N, where NH3–N 1⁄4 ( 17)NH3) and hydrogen sulfide (H2S) were measured from a finishing swine confinement house at a commercial pig farm in eastern North Carolina. Continuous simultaneous NH3–N and H2S emissions were made for 1-week period during four different seasons. The number of pigs contained in the house varied from 850 to 900 with average weights ranging from 38 to 88 kg. Average NH3–N concentrations were highest during the winter and spring… CONTINUE READING
