Dairy farmers can supplement the feed additive monensin to dairy cow diet rations to improve milk production efficiency. Few long-term studies have been conducted on the effect of monensin on AD performance for manure treatment. Here, we performed a year-long, laboratory-scale study in which four, 4.5-L continuously stirred anaerobic digesters (CSADs) were subjected to different monensin dosing strategies. We used manure from dairy cows that were dosed with increasing amounts of monensin (feed… CONTINUE READING
