In Illinois, livestock mortalities are disposed of according to the Dead Animal Disposal Act. Please watch our Animal Mortality Composting video to learn more about how to initiate your first composting site. The video is also available in Japanese (へい獣たい肥化の日本語版ムービーもございます。). Please also check Illinois Department of Agriculture's website to gain an insight in emergency livestock mortality management (link below).
