MANURE BMP ADOPTION AMONG NORTH DAKOTA ANIMAL FEED OPERATIONS

Eric C. Schuck and Scott Birchall

No 36046, 2001 Annual Meeting, July 8-11, 2001, Logan, Utah from Western Agricultural Economics Association

Abstract: Regulations governing animal waste storage are primarily a state-level issue. Protecting water resources from animal waste contamination will depend upon how effective state-level animal waste regulations are in encouraging livestock producers to handle waste appropriately. Survey results from North Dakota indicate beef cattle feeding operations do not always comply with state regulations requiring adoption of manure storage BMP's. This is most likely due to incomplete inspection schedules by the regulatory agency. Statistical results suggest herd size plays a much larger role than regulation in promoting adoption of manure storage BMP's.
