Antibiotics are commonly used in the livestock industry to prevent disease and promote growth. Antimicrobials are then excreted into manure, which when applied to the land, can spread antimicrobial resistant bacteria through the environment. Manure management practices, such as stockpiling, are important ways to reduce transport of AMR bacteria in the environment, before land application. The objective of this study was to determine the heating profile of composting and conductive concrete in beef cattle manure management.
