Animal Waste Management Systems - Poultry

Poultry waste facility

Description

Animal Waste Management Systems are designed for the proper handling, storage, and utilization of wastes generated from animal confinement operations. Storage sheds are used for storing for solid wastes. Adequate storage ensures wastes are only applied when crops can use the accompanying nutrients and soil and weather conditions are appropriate.

Funding Source

Cost-share grants are available to install these systems through the Maryland Agricultural Water Quality Cost-Share (MACS) Program and USDA’s Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP).
