Gilbertson, C.B., Ellis, J.R., Nienaber, J.A., McCalla, T.M. and Klopfenstein, T.J. (1975) Physical and chemical properties of outdoor beef cattle feedlot runoff (Research Bulletin No. 271)
Within the past decade, emphasis has been placed on the quality of our environment. Beef cattle feedlots have been singled out as a significant source of environmental pollution. Environmental protection provided by control facilities requires basic knowledge of the physical and chemical properties of feedlot runoff. This bulletin summarizes studies of physical and chemical properties of beef cattle feedlot runoff completed from August, 1968 through December, 1972.
