When designing tanks, the total volume of material to be stored must be calculated. Guides on tank design, evaluation of animal waste volumes, and calculation of water and feed losses were recently updated. This guide provides a comprehensive calculation method that takes into account volumes of bedding added as well as feed and water losses.
