Systematic Evaluation of In-House Broiler Litter Windrowing Effects on Production Benefits and Environmental Impact
The objectives of this proposed study are: 1) Investigate the effect of litter windrowing between broiler flocks in reducing pathogens, and 2) Quantitatively monitor and compare the organic matter stabilization, cumulative ammonia emission, and nutrient transformation from the litter windrowing and litter conditioning process.
