Biocontained Carcass Composting for Control of Infectious Disease Outbreak in Livestock Tim Reuter1, Weiping Xu2, Trevor W. Alexander1, Brandon H. Gilroyed1, G. Douglas Inglis1, Francis J. Larney1, Kim Stanford3, Tim A. McAllister1 1Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, Lethbridge Research Centre, 2Department of Bioscience and Biotechnology, Dalian University of Technology, 3Agriculture Centre, Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development Using readily available materials, this biocontained composting system enables effective on-site disposal of large animal carcasses arising in the event of infectious disease outbreak. This procedure kills most infectious agents in carcasses and contaminated manure. Once infectious agent is confirmed non-viable, mature compost can be spread as fertilizer.
