Due to the greater mobility ofbacteria in liquid phase compared to the solid phase, liquid manure tends to be more uniformly contaminated than the solid man ure. Pathogens may be present in manure even if the animals present no symptoms, and a small number of infected animals can contaminate a whole source of man ure (Strauch, 1988). Consequently, the greater the number of animals on a farm, the greater the likelihood of pathogens being present in the manure. Biological resouree management 34 The bacterial groups present in greatest number in manure are faecal coliforms and streptococci (Table 1).
