More accurate estimates of dairy cattle manure excretion are needed for manure management, nutrient plans, renewable bioenergy production, and environmental assessment. Consequently, it is important to quantify manure excretion by dairy herds. Current estimates use only a few animal groups and average herd characteristics to estimate fixed rates of manure excretion throughout the year. However, manure excretion varies seasonally and should be predicted based on dynamic herd group… CONTINUE READING
