Odor nuisance has been increasing in importance for new and existing animal production facilities. The object of this study, published in two parts, is to develop a method of establishing minimum offset distances.

An OFFSET model was developed based on an air dispersion model and actual odor emissions.  This model is based on extensive research at 280 animal buildings and manure storage facilities from 85 Minnesota farms. This model takes into account the local weather patterns as well as topography. This model does not overpredict odor travel distance.
