ABSTRACT
The results of the investigations showed that manure properties do affect the performance of manure spreaders. Different spreader types are influenced in different ways when the manure properties change. Dry matter content alone is not enough to completely describe the relevant physical properties of the manure. There are connection between at least some of the proposed characterization parameters and important spreading characteristics like, e.g., manure flow and working width. The relevance of other characterization parameters need to be further investigated in the future.
