RD&E Project Update: Managing ammonia emissions and pad moisture

30/06/2022

A four-year Project Partnership between the Livestock Export Program and University of New England (UNE) is providing the science to develop recommendations on stocking density, bedding and ammonia for live cattle and sheep export voyages.

This trial assessed pad formation and ammonia production of sheep housed at five different stocking densities to develop a risk predictor model for ammonia emissions, which will help exporters and vessel operators to maintain optimal conditions for livestock on export vessels.
