GLRPPR Sector Resource: Manure Management for Water Quality: Costs to Confined Animal Feeding Operations of Applying Manure Nutrients to Land

Title:
Manure Management for Water Quality: Costs to Confined Animal Feeding Operations of Applying Manure Nutrients to Land

Abstract:
This report was developed by the Manure and Water Quality Research Team of the USDA. This report’s farm-level analysis examines on-farm technical choice and producer costs across major U.S. production areas for hauling manure to the minimum amount of land needed to assimilate manure nutrients. A regional analysis then focuses on off-farm competition for land to spread surplus manure, using the Chesapeake Bay region as a case study. Finally, a sector-wide analysis addresses potential long-term structural adjustments at the national level and ultimate costs to consumers and producers. (PDF Format; Length: 97 pages)
