Poultry litter and carcass residues are nutrient-rich materials which can benefit the farmstead. Broiler litter is often used as a feed supplement for cattle. However, improper litter storage, improper disposal of carcasses, or improper land application of litter or compost residues can threaten farmstead water sources with nitrate and bacterial contamination.
