Litter Nutrients and Management in Poultry Systems


Litter Nutrients and Management in Poultry Systems

Watch the Archive Now

As poultry genetics, management practices and industries evolve, so do manure and litter characteristics. Litter-based poultry systems have an added layer of complexity with the amount and characteristics dependent on both excreta and the amount of bedding material. This webinar dives into changes in broiler litter characteristics based on changes in production practices and litter management. The webinar will also share ongoing work to predict nutrient availability for poultry litter during land application, optimizing crop growth and minimizing environmental losses. Finally, the webinar will share past and present experiences with a combination slatted floor and bedding-based system for turkeys.

An application for continuing education credit for Certified Crop Advisors (CCAs) and members of the American Registry of Professional Animal Scientists (ARPAS) will be submitted.

Presenters for this webinar include:

  • Kevin Janni, University of Minnesota
  • Rishi Prasad, Auburn University
  • John Chastain, Clemson University 


Handouts (PDF format) will be available the day of the webinar at the live webinar information page. Find out more about this webinar or future webinars by the Livestock and Poultry Environmental Learning Community (LPELC).
