This report profiles the amounts of animal waste generated by livestock operations. The report allows you to rank your community based on amounts of animal waste, details trends over time and provides you with opportunities to take action. See Scorecard's overview of animal waste problems.
Data Source: Scorecard combines livestock population data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture with waste factors developed by the agricultural community to estimate the amount of animal waste that livestock operations produce.
NOTE: Due to limitations in available data, Scorecard cannot describe the waste management methods of specific livestock operations or evaluate the level of health or ecological risk that animal waste may pose in an area.
