ANIMAL WASTE MANAGEMENT STRATEGIES, A REVIEW

Emmanuel Nwafoagu UCHEWA, Michael Oria OTUMA, Peter BROOKS

Abstract


The issue of pollution and environmental protection now command widespread interest and political attention. Increased concern over environmental destruction has led to the introduction of new anti pollution laws and regulations in many countries throughout the world. Some such regulations focus on curbing pollution caused by industrial and agricultural activities. Animals produce enormous quantities of waste per day. In areas supporting intensive livestock production, accumulation of such waste can pose a serious environmental hazard. A single animal pen of a moderate size will produce quantities of waste equal to that produced by a small town annually. Waste produced from these pens usually lead to soil, water and the atmosphere pollutions. Several nutritional advances have been reported which serve to reduce the excretion and pollutive effect of animal waste.
