Abstract

An odor mitigation technology that is drawing a lot of attention in Iowa and in other livestock producing states is the strategic use of shelterbelts – purposefully planted trees and shrubs usually arranged in linear patterns; a technical term for shelterbelts being used for odor mitigation is Vegetative Environmental Buffers or VEBs (Malone et al., 2006). Research evidence suggests that VEBs strategically located near and around livestock facilities can play an important incremental role in bio-physically and socio-psychologically mitigating odor in an economically feasible way (Tyndall and Colletti, 2007).
