Under practical conditions, microorganisms play a dominate role in the degradation processes and generate many gases such as N[H.sub.3], carbon dioxide (C[O.sub.2]), methane (CHJ, and dinitrogen monoxide ([N.sub.2]O), which subsequently evaporate into the stall air and the surrounding environment of the beddings [5], Chemical and biological processes cause the generation of gases from different depths of the beddings.
