  1. 19% Pennsylvania Farm-A-Syst: Worksheet 4: Barnyard Conditions and Management [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "The barnyard is often the first place to look for sources of sediment, bacteria, nitrogen, and phosphorus that can contaminate surface water and, in some cases, groundwater. Barnyards are busy places that can be difficult to manage. Mud and manure in a barnyard are not only a source of pollutants, but also sources of microbes that can cause animal health problems."

  2. 19% Pennsylvania Farm-A-Syst: Worksheet 5: Milkhouse Waste Management [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Milking center wastewater usually is considered a dairy sanitation problem. If not carefully managed, however, dairy wastewater can contaminate surface water or groundwater. Milkhouse wastewater may contain paper towels, detergent, milk solids, fats, manure, and other organic materials that reduce oxygen levels in water as they decompose. Fish and other aquatic life need this oxygen to live. If milk is frequently poured down the milkhouse drain, milk fats can cause premature aging of a wastewater septic system due to clogging of the drain field."

  3. 19% Pennsylvania Farm-A-Syst: Worksheet 6: Stream and Drainageway Management [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Water is one of our most important resources. In the past, it was advantageous to have a water source close to the farmstead. Today, numerous farms have a stream or drainageway cutting through heavily used pastures, exercise lots, or barnyards. As more cows are concentrated on an area, the potential increases for sediment, bacteria, nitrogen, and phosphorus to run off into these streams. However, if managed properly, on-farm streams can be useful for livestock watering and valuable for fish and wildlife habitat."

  4. 19% Pennsylvania Farm-A-Syst: Worksheet 7: Petroleum Storage and Handling [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Liquid petroleum products are concentrated, effective sources of power, lubrication, and heat. Aboveground and underground storage of petroleum products such as transportation fuel and heating fuel, however, can be a threat to family and farm safety, public health, and the environment."

  5. 19% Pennsylvania Farm-A-Syst: Worksheet 8: Silage Storage Management [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Silage is an essential feed for livestock-based agriculture. It can be made from corn, silage crops such as grass and alfalfa, or from crop processing wastes. When properly harvested and stored, silage poses little or no pollution threat. However, improper silage-making and storing can result in liquid effluents, gases, malodors, undesirable microorganisms, and waste or spoiled silage."

  6. 19% Pennsylvania Farm-A-Syst: Worksheet 9: Animal Waste Storage Management [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Runoff from livestock production facilities can carry manure, soil, microorganisms, and other potential pollutants that could contaminate surface water and groundwater sources. If not managed properly, animal wastes can affect water quality and human health."

  7. 19% Pennsylvania Farm-A-Syst: Worksheet 10: Animal Waste Land Application Management [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Managing the land application of animal waste to protect water quality depends on applying rates based on crop requirements and soil conditions, knowing the composition of the animal waste, avoiding runoff from recent applications, and protecting the application areas from runoff and soil erosion. Runoff from fields and water leaching through soil can carry plant nutrients, soil, microorganisms, and other potential pollutants from the fields to surface water or groundwater."

  8. 19% Pennsylvania Farm-A-Syst: Worksheet 11: Soil Conservation Management [pdf]Get Acrobat Reader
    Source: Department of Crop and Soil Sciences Publications

    "Soil conservation protects a valuable resource and reduces the off-farm direct impacts of sediment or the indirect impacts of nutrients or pesticides that may be attached to eroded soil particles. A good soil management program has three goals: to protect the soil from erosion by water or wind; to reduce runoff from the land into surface water; and to maintain or improve soil quality."
