Waste Not, Want Not:
Animal Waste in America
Every year in the U.S., livestock produce more than 900 million tons of waste. That’s more than three tons for every citizen. And in rural areas where livestock populations are concentrated, the resulting animal waste runoff can contribute to serious environmental problems. Oversaturation of waste material in the soil leads to the leaching of pathogens, nitrates and phosphorous into public waterways – often with severe to catastrophic consequences.
