Determining resource requirements for removal of waste from egg farms
These resources will assist egg farms in planning their approach to waste disposal, particularly in preparing for infectious disease in the flock. Using a risk-based approach these resources will enable egg farmers to identify the resources that would be needed on their farm to support the disposal of all types of poultry farm waste.
Reducing ammonia losses during composting of chicken manure without altering economic outcomes
This research trialled mixing poultry manure with organic materials such as sawdust and wood chips, in an effort to produce a nitrogen rich compost product.
Addition of sawdust or wood chips to manure was shown to maximise nitrogen retention but at an increased compost production cost.
Layer Hen Manure Analysis Report
Poultry layer manure and litter composition data are essential for accurately determining sustainable application rates of manure to crops and pastures.This study collected some 20 samples of manure and litter from five different layer production systems from all major production regions in Australia.
