Summary

This POWER Practice Abstract recommends the use of automatic scrapers for reduced ammonia emissions, which remove manure daily or several times per day if needed. Daily scraping of the toilet area during the summer considerably decreases ammonia emissions, compared to scraping 1-3 times a week, since a dry and clean area has hardly to no detectable ammonia emissions.
