Table 1: ANOVA results for dry matter (DM) mass remaining in manure in storage in the dry season experiment, as a percent of the initial manure DM mass and for N content (DM basis) of manure in storage in the dry season experiment, as a percent of the initial manure N content. Fixed effects are the manure quality (Medium versus Low quality), the presence or absence of urine in the manure, and the number of days the manure was incubated (0, 6, 12, 18, 24, 30, 50, 70, 90, or 120 days). Terms for the interaction between fixed effects are denoted by fixed effects terms separated by an asterisk (*). DF represents the degrees of freedom of the test.
