Animal Manure Management
For reference, a single dairy cow weighs about 1,400 pounds, or 1.4 animal units. A typical steer weighs about 1,000 pounds, or 1 animal unit, and most hogs weigh between 200 and 300 pounds, or 0.2 to 0.3 animal unit. A mature broiler, on the other hand, weighs between 4 and 5 pounds, so it takes as many as 250 birds to make up an animal unit.
