Summary

Livestock or animal production systems differ between countries, as does animal manure management. This chapter presents the most common terms used to define animal production and manure management, and introduces systems and mass balances of carbon and plant nutrient flows in an aerobic and anaerobic manure management system. An engineering system approach is also presented to assess mass balances of phosphorus when separating slurry into a dry matter-rich solid fraction and a liquid fraction.
