Composting is often the preferred technology for solid manure management. Composting reduces odor, stabilizes nutrients, and generates an easily stored product. While the benefits of composting are well documented, little is known about the water quality impacts at composting sites. This project established a demonstration site at the ISU Dairy Farm, Ames, Iowa, to explore these impacts.
