Objective
¿ Determine the stability and chemical fate of chlorate in mixed urine-feces from feedlot cattle. ¿ Determine the activity of chlorate salts against E. coli O157:H7 in mixed urine-feces. ¿ Determine the stability and chemical fate of chlorate in a simulated (anaerobic) lagoon and in aerobic compost systems fortified with manure from feedlot cattle. ¿ Determine ruminal and fecal microbial species responsible for the microbial reduction of chlorate not associated with pathogen elimination.
