Abstract

Nutrient concentrations of manure sampled from four areas within bedded beef confinement facilities were similar, but dry matter of the manure was variable by area sampled. Nutrient concentrations in the manure were affected by time of sampling and by producer facility. Manure from bedded confinement buildings for beef production can be a valuable, consistent source of nutrients for crop production; however producers need to sample and test the manure from their facility to be able to manage it.
