AMES, Iowa (AP) - The latest technology designed to reduce the odor from hog manure will be the focus of a conference next month at Iowa State University.

The Biofilter Conference on Aug. 20 is aimed at producers and managers of animal feeding operations and others interested in learning about development of the latest equipment.

ISU agricultural and biosystems engineering professor Steve Hoff says biofilters can be an effective means to reduce odor and other gas emissions from ventilated animal and manure storage facilities. He says the conference will outline costs, effectiveness, management and other details, and provide sources of science-based information on biofilters.

A demonstration of biofilter operation with an Iowa State biofilter mobile unit is planned.
