This Rural Industries R&D Corporation study measured the manure production of a number of feedlots to gain more accurate and relevant data for the BEEF-BAL model and “Methane to Markets” project. The study provides measured data of total solids (TS), volatile solids (VS) and moisture content of feedlot manure at various stages of decomposition.
These data were used to put back into BEEF-BAL model to improve the TS, VS and moisture content estimates that are currently used and validate the model.
