Howard C. Zindel Papers: American Poultry Historical Society Papers


Extensive collection of reprints, magazine and newspaper articles, research reports, bulletins, regional project reports and brochures on livestock and poultry waste utilization for the years 1960 through 1975. The collection covers a period during which many of the fundamental concepts on the utilization of agricultural wastes were developed. Information on systems for drying, composting and anaerobic and aerobic digestion of livestock and poultry wastes as well as reports on the value of animal manures as fuel and fertilizer, with emphasis on the effects of these waste materials on air and water pollution represent a significant portion of the collected papers. Much of the early research on feeding of livestock and poultry wastes to cattle and chickens is also included. Other materials include minutes and station reports for three North Central Regional Projects: NC-67 (1968-70) and NC-69 (1963-68), Farm Animal Waste Disposal; NC-93 (1970-75), Animal Waste Management with Pollution Control; Proceedings of conferences and symposia on livestock and poultry waste from 1964 through 1975; brochures, bulletins and reports on general environmental problems with solid wastes and water pollution, brochures and reports on various types of waste handling equipment, poultry processing plant waste disposal and reprints of reports on poultry nutrition, diseases and management topics.

Howard Zindel worked at Michigan State University in East Lansing, Michigan.
