Abstract

This report presents the results of measurements performed at one animal facility for veal calves using the control-case approach, to estimate the ammonia and odour emission reduction of a floor (Groene Vlag) combined with a V-shaped manure belt under the floor compared to the traditional wooden slatted floor. These measurements were commissioned by Bettink Service Team and by Beerepoot Stalinrichtingen BV. Ammonia emissions were significantly lower (53%) than the emission from the traditional floor measured simultaneously within the same farm (case-control approach). Odour emissions were significantly lower (47%) than the emission from the traditional floor measured simultaneously within the same farm (case-control approach).
