It is an estimate of the degree to which livestock production may contribute to nutrient loading, pathogens and odour. The classes shown on the map are ranked between 0 (lowest) and 1 (highest).This resource was created in 202 using ArcGIS. purpose: Mapping manure production gives some indication of where in the province livestock production is most concentrated. This is important to know when issues related to manure management arise. Proper manure storage, handling and application are important wherever livestock are produced but especially in areas with a higher manure production index. Manure production is a part of that equation to determine of water quality risk. Therefore, if an area is known to have certain risk factors that would affect not only surface water but groundwater quality as well, a higher manure production index ranking in that same area may be concern. Where risk of surface or groundwater contamination exist, environmental farm planning can help to minimize them status: MD_ProgressCode: completed resourceMaintenance: MD_MaintenanceInformation: maintenanceAndUpdateFrequency: MD_MaintenanceFrequencyCode: asNeeded descriptiveKeywords: MD_Keywords: keyword: Alberta type: MD_KeywordTypeCode: place descriptiveKeywords: MD_Keywords: keyword: cow poop keyword: fertilizer keyword: livestock management keyword: livestock housing type: MD_KeywordTypeCode: theme thesaurusName: CI_Citation: title: Agrovoc date: CI_Date: date: 2016-01-21 dateType: CI_DateTypeCode: revision citedResponsibleParty: missing descriptiveKeywords: MD_Keywords: keyword: Downloadable Data thesaurusName: uuidref: 723f6998-058e-11dc-8314-0800200c9a66 resourceConstraints: MD_LegalConstraints: useConstraints: MD_RestrictionCode: license otherConstraints: Your use of this information will be governed by the terms of the Open Government Licence - Alberta, in force as of the date you accessed the information , found at http://open.alberta.ca/licence resourceConstraints: MD_LegalConstraints: accessConstraints: MD_RestrictionCode: otherRestrictions otherConstraints: To access the data you must agree to the terms of the Open Government Licence - Alberta found at http://open.alberta.ca/licence resourceConstraints: MD_LegalConstraints: useLimitation: Distribution Liability: Under the terms of the Open Government Licence - Alberta, the Information is licensed as is, and the Information Provider excludes all representations, warranties, obligations, and liabilities, whether express or implied, to the maximum extent permitted by law.

Calculation and custom processing of the Census data by Statistics Canada results in manure production in tonnes for each Soil Landscapes of Canada (SLC) polygon. That amount was divided by the SLC area (square km) to result in a ratio of the manure produced per unit area for each SLC.
                  
SLC Version 1.9 was used for this map. SLC polygons were created using existing soil survey information. Each polygon is described by a standard set of soil and land attributes that characterizes the soil landscapes found in each SLC polygon. Soils, landscapes and climate are the key natural resource factors that determine agricultural productivity, and the farms within a soil landscape unit usually have similar production characteristics.
                  
The 2001 Census of Agriculture collected information about the numbers of all livestock raised in the province. Using research by Culley and Barnett (1984), Statistics Canada calculated the amount of manure produced by the total number of livestock. A formula that weighted the different livestock based on animal size and average manure output was used. The numbers of each type of livestock reported in the Census, multiplied by its manure factor, were totalled to give the total manure produced in tonnes.
                  
The values for each SLC were ranked with the lowest value assigned a new value of 0.0 and the SLC with the maximum ratio assigned a new value of 1.0. All other values were assigned a new value between 0.0 and 1.0 based on their rank order. dateTime: 2002-01-01T00:00:00 source: LI_Source: description: Numbers of all livestock raised in the province. sourceCitation: CI_Citation: title: 2001 Census of Agriculture date: CI_Date: date: 2014-03-24 dateType: CI_DateTypeCode: revision citedResponsibleParty: missing source: LI_Source: description: A series of GIS coverages that show the major charcteristics of soil and land for Canada. sourceCitation: CI_Citation: title: Soil Landscapes of Canada date: CI_Date: date: 1991-01-01 dateType: CI_DateTypeCode: publication citedResponsibleParty: missing metadataMaintenance: MD_MaintenanceInformation: maintenanceAndUpdateFrequency: MD_MaintenanceFrequencyCode: notPlanned
