Collecting and Preserving Waste and Wastewater Samples for Analysis
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Waste handling systems as part of livestock production layouts are being developed and used to protect the environment. One part of waste management is sampling and analyzing the waste and wastewater to know what you have. Information from samples can be valuable for properly operating the system. If results of analyses of waste samples are to be meaningful, then the sample collection and preservation must be done properly. Procedures outlined in this guide are for field sampling from livestock operations. They are not meant as a guide to sampling for scientific research, which in many instances requires specific and highly sophisticated sampling methods.
