Abstract

Specific dietary ingredients may have the potential to alter manure odor by altering digestive patterns or fermentation or by masking manure odorants. Inclusion of dietary bloodmeal (BM) into nursery pig diets resulted in a slight, but insignificant, increase in manure odor intensity. Electronic nose response to manure odor moderately mimicked human response.
