“Poultry manureshed management: Opportunities and challenges for a vertically integrated industry” with Dr. Ray Bryant
Poultry farms are often heavily concentrated in certain areas of the country. This can lead to excessive amounts of nutrient-rich poultry manure in manuresheds with no easy way to return it to the fields that need it. This episode, Ray discusses recent research into how big these manuresheds can grow, how far manure has to travel to reach nutrient sinks, and how we can better balance nutrients in the future.
