The Adams County Board of Supervisors has barred the use of paunch manure as a soil supplement.

The board resolution was passed on Tuesday.

Paunch manure is the partially digested material taken from an animal at the time of slaughter.

The board's resolution allows dewatered byproducts from animal processing plants to be applied on farmland, as long as there is a use permit and the material has been composted.

The Adams County Planning and Zoning Commission chairman, Jim Kostal, says the resolution protects the health and welfare of county residents, because paunch manure is an extremely noxious and hard-to-manage material.
