Abstract

This project addressed a number of RD&E objectives relating to litter, litter management, litter re-use, odour emissions, litter tilling and in-shed air quality (ammonia and carbon dioxide). Many of these topics are inter-related and it was therefore logical to group these objectives together so they may be addressed holistically.

Project activities included undertaking industry consultation, on-farm measurements/experiments, data collection, literature reviews, and producing fact sheets and case studies relating to litter management practices (such as tilling) and litter re-use. The development of fact sheets and case studies on a range of management practices will form a knowledge foundation, supporting industry to continue to provide the best possible environmental conditions in poultry sheds.
