slurry

solids in suspension. Used as a method of feeding pigs—slurry is pumped through fixed lines and delivered to troughs by hoses equipped with gasoline pump fittings. Used also as a means of disposing of feces and urine from cesspits under animal accommodation or trap tanks attached to milking sheds. Disposal is usually onto pasture. This creates poisoning hazards with respect to heavy metals and transmission of disease such as salmonellosis or Johne's disease.
