Transport of Manure

After removal of animals, manure should be removed from the farm site as soon as possible to a distance of at least 500 m. When transportation in trucks takes place, they should be clcosed or covered with a shield, so dust and possible contamination cannot spread to other farms or other types of poultry.

Storage of manure on a farm, such as layer farms with manure belts should be under controlled conditions, so pets , birds or rodents have no access to the storage facilities. When the dried manure has to be transported, spread of dust should be avoided.
