The influence of manure composition on emissions of odour and ammonia from finishing pigs fed different concentrations of dietary crude protein.

An investigation was conducted into the influence of manure composition on the odour emission rate (OER) and the emission rate of ammonia (NH(3)), when diets containing 130, 160, 190 and 210gkg(-1) crude protein (CP) were fed to finishing pigs. A group of four boars and four gilts, housed in environmentally sealed pens, were assigned to each diet for a 23… CONTINUE READING
