Odours are one of the main causes of conflicts between livestock producers and their neighbours. In most areas, hog producers represent a small minority of the population. It is therefore essential that hog producers develop and maintain a positive image within their community.

One of the key elements in being a good neighbour is to make every reasonable effort to control odours. It should be the goal of all hog producers to design, construct and manage their operations in a manner that minimizes the odour experienced by their neighbours.
