Estrogens and Estrogenic Activity in Swine Manure

The goal of this research is to quantify the levels of various forms   of estrogens and their activity in various types of swine waste   facilities in Minnesota. This would provide a baseline data base on   the extent of estrogen levels in swine manure and how these levels   and the estrogenic activity varies with age of pigs, different   production style (farrow-to-feeder; Feeder-to-finish; and farrow-to-  finish), different waste management plans (open lagoons vs covered   lagoons, aerobic vs anaerobic lagoons) and seasons (spring, summer,   and fall/winter).    To be successful in protecting the water quality in Minnesota lakes,   rivers, and aquifers, risk identification and assessment need to   precede mitigation plans. Thus, this project will provide the   baseline data for estrogens levels and estrogenic activity in   various swine facilities in Minnesota. This research is relevant to   the concern of public health and ecological impact. The data   generated in this study will be useful to state and federal agencies   for environmental risk assessment.    (human hormone); (human hormones); (hormone); (hormones);   (estrogens); (estrogen); (chemicals of emerging concern); (chemical   of emerging concern); (chemicals of concern); (chemical of concern)
