|Abstract:||The goal of the small-scale swine waste management system described in his publication is to help island communities by developing beneficial uses of pig manure while protecting water resources from being polluted by the nutrients in pig wastes that may run off or leach from pig pens. The portable dry-litter pen system is a practical option for small-scale piggery operations. It adapts the concept of the dry-litter waste management system developed for commercial swine operations in Hawaii, combining it with rotational grazing and cropping strategies and the goal of recycling through composting. The system is relatively inexpensive and adaptable to locations with limited land area. No water is used for pen cleaning, thus reducing the threat of pollution of groundwater supplies and surface water bodies.|
