Manure Gas Detection & Bauer Bedding Recovery Unit Field

Course Description:

The decomposition of manure in storage or handling systems generates gases, some of which are toxic, explosive, and oxygen displacing. The most hazardous gases are hydrogen sulfide (H2S), ammonia (NH3), methane (CH4), and carbon dioxide (CO2). Dangerous levels of these gases can accumulate in and around manure management systems, particularly when manure is being agitated or otherwise disturbed. Join us and see gas detection devices operate around these areas and visit a farm utilizing processed manure for bedding in a freestall operation.
