ABSTRACT
On Ljubljansko polje, we registered 155 farmers with barns, mostly with the separate collection of dung with litter and dung-water. We surveyed 307 dung installations, of which 151 were dunghills and 156 dung-pits. The traditional method of storing cattle manure in dunghills on top of dung-pits dominates. Some 231 of the dung installations are properly arranged, and almost two thirds have a suitable capacity.
