Abstract

Cattle feeding operators are interested in alternative runoff control and treatment systems that eliminate the need for long-term liquid storage; however, the feasibility and sustainability of these alternative systems is yet to be determined. Several demonstration sites were constructed in Iowa and Nebraska utilizing vegetative treatment areas (VTAs) to determine their sustainability for feedlot runoff control. These sites represent varying climate, site considerations (i.e. management, soil texture, topography etc.), and designs.
