Housing laying hens with dry manure production

Housing laying hens with dry manure production

Landtechnik 38(7/8): 298-300

Odour emission from various manure handling systems is evaluated. Water removal from manure by ventilation is discussed and several systems given as examples. In order to obtain a manure DM content of 50% in a 4 tier battery system, approximately 2.8 kg of water per m2 stall area must be removed from the manure. Drying can take place on the collecting surface below the cages, in the manure channels or in the manure storage cellar area or in a combination of these 3.
