PROJECT DESCRIPTION: A livestock composting project in northwest Iowa is helping producers make economically feasible decisions regarding disposal of their fallen animals. These photos were taken at the Allee Research Farm, one of the 14 sites involved in the project.
Approximately 250 pigs have been composted here since the project began in November 1999. The project's main co-composting material is wood shavings from a turkey brooder house at a cost of $7 per full dump truck, delivered.
