    Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs) are increasing in size and generating consider- ably more waste requiring disposal over an increasingly limited area. As livestock production has become more spatially concentrated, the amount of available manure nutrients often exceeds the assimilative capacity of the land on the farms. Concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs) generate large volumes of manure and manure-contaminated wash and runoff water. When applied to land at agronomic rates, CAFO wastewater has the potential to be a valuable fertilizer and soil amendment that can improve the physical condition of Cited by:

An animal unit is the equivalent of pounds of "live" animal weight. A thousand animal units equates to cows, cows used for dairy. Get this from a library. Source water protection for concentrated animal feeding operations: a guide for drinking water utilities.
