Manure Storage Covers Curriculum Materials

Animal Manure Management January 06, 2015 Print Friendly and PDF

Air emissions from animal agriculture operations and their associated manure storage are being examined more closely as a way to mitigate potentially harmful gases. Covers are becoming popular as a way to collect methane (a potent greenhouse gas) for beneficial reuse as a renewable energy source.  The materials on this page were developed to assist educators and professors who include manure storage covers as a topic in their classrooms or educational programs.
