    feedlot. With a basin surface area 1/20 of the feedlot area, this results in design solids accumulation of to 2 feet in the basin. Basin size and shape. When all design criteria are considered, basins are. commonly designed with a surface area at least 1/20 of the contributing runoff (feedlot) area and a minimum. liquid depth of at least. highest density of feedlot cattle in Canada. However, the quantity and quality of runoff from beef cattle () feedlots in this unique region has not been investigated. Our objective was to compare runoff quantity () to catch-basin design criteria; determine concentrations of selected inorganic chemical parameters () in.

    Abstract. Beef cattle feedlots face serious environmental challenges associated with manure management, including greenhouse gas, odor, NH 3, and dust ions affecting emissions are poorly characterized, but likely relate to the variability of feedlot surface moisture and manure contents, which affect microbial processes. Feedlot runoff Feedlots are containment areas used to raise large numbers of animals to an optimum weight within the shortest time span possible. Most feedlots are open air, and are thereby subject to variable weather conditions. A substantial portion of the feed is not converted into meat, and is excreted, thus degrading the air, ground, and surface water quality.

    need to document the potential water quality impact of cattle pastures and have tools to estimate this impact relative to other land uses on cattle farms. As quantifying runoff nutrient loss from all sources on a cattle farm through physical monitoring is expensive and lengthy, * Corresponding author. Tel.: +1 ; fax: +1 water and feedlot runoff. Runoff can be collected from feedlot areas and di­ verted to settling basins and holding ponds by using curbs, channels, terraces, pipes or combinations of these. All parts of the runoff con trol facilities need to be kept free of obstructions such as weeds, tree limbs, and accumula­ tions of solids.
