Nutrient Management on Livestock Farms: Tips for Feeding
Nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) from agriculture sources can affect water quality. These nutrients are required for plant and animal growth, but too much in agricultural runoff can result in environmental and health concerns. This fact sheet provides some guidelines to help livestock producers reduce N and P losses by monitoring and/or changing feeding and management practices. This can result in less waste and ultimately a healthier, cleaner and safer environment.
