Poop Smellers Advance Odor Emission Estimation


Students at Purdue University are earning some extra money by participating in a program in which they smell livestock excrement, and other materials collected from barns containing a variety of animals.

Albert Heber, a Purdue professor of agricultural and biological engineering, uses the information gathered for his ongoing research on ways to improve methods for guessing how bad a farm smells to its neighbors.

The students smell materials from different parts of a barn at varying degrees of dilution designed to replicate the odors at varying distances from the barn. "We're not smelling it for long" said graduate student Anuj Sharma, "It's just a sniff."

Seriously though, grad students, sniffing poop?

think it wouldn´t be possible to bear that odor for a long time but the sniffing is a little bit easier.

  That has to be  
the absolute most retarded study I have ever heard of in my life.

  Horse/cow manure isn´t so bad  
But pig manure, forget it. I remember having to go past a pig farm to get to grandma´s as a kid, I don´t know how people endure that stench.

my inlaws used to live across the road from a pig lot and I can relate. It was worse than the smell of death. But somehow I never seem to remember this when I am gleefully munching on a pile of crispy bacon.

  Pig and Chicken...

is it possible to surprise at it as the pigs are fed with all kind of swills.
