    Bodies of Dead Animals Rules

    The Michigan Department of Agriculture & Rural Development's rules entitled "Bodies of Dead Animals" for on farm composting were approved with the Great Seal on September 26, 2007.  The rules provide for composting of dead animals and animal tissue within a structure, in open piles, windrows, and contained vessels.  These additional alternatives for disposal of dead animals will assist producers who have no rendering services, licensed landfills that accept dead animals, or soil types for proper burial.
