Can poultry manure be fed to cattle?

0

Rations of up to 60 parts of dried poultry waste to 40 parts grain have given favorable results when fed to feeder cattle. Ensiling appears to be a good method of utilizing wet cage layer manure. Ideal manure-silage should have a moisture content of 40%, temperature range of 65 to 90°F, and a pH of 3.9 to 4.0. One report indicates 60 parts manure to 40 parts forage is a good mixture. Commercial poultry growers have fed processed poultry litter to cattle for decades with no adverse effects.
