Livestock manure is organic material consisting primarily of a more or less homogenous mix of faeces and
urine from livestock, including bedding material, and secondarily of other material that
would be discarded as waste from a livestock production such as fodder residues, silage
effluents, and process water. Livestock manure might also be more or less diluted with
rain water during storage.

The shown values express the livestock manure qualitied that are fund in the livestock manure
storage, where the manures from several livestock types in the herd are mixed (for instance
manures from dairy cows, heifers, calves, etc.).
