Swine

Summary and Implications

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has enacted regulations that will restrict the amount of phosphorus (P) that can be applied to land. With the vast majority of swine production sites operating at high stocking densities and having less available land on which to apply animal effluent, increased P levels in manure could substantially increase production costs.
