Abstract

Increased awareness and concern for environmental quality in recent years has increased pressure on farmers to develop and utilize methods to minimize the environmental impact of their production activities. The use of manure produced by livestock enterprises to meet crop nutrient needs is one method that has been used to reach these sustainable environmental goals. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the economic impact on returns of using swine manure to meet crop nutrient needs on a typical midwest crop/livestock farm.
