One of the serious problems in livestock farms is manure. It hasn't correct manure management, control and storage, manure causes environmental problems such as global warming, acidification and eutrophication. It is important to determine the pollution potential of manure for livestock operations, region and national wide, monitoring them and determining their effect. This study aimed to determine the potential of manure-related pollution caused by livestock in Bursa. For 2019, pollution occurred from poultry (laying hens and broiler) 395027,2 tons/year, sheep and goat 276312,5 tons/year and cattle (dairy cattle, beef and calves) 3200018,5 tons/year. For 2020,pollution potential was calculated 407475,4 tons/year pollution from poultry (laying hens and broiler), 278142,3 tons/year from sheep and goat and 3088401,1 tons/year from cattle (dairy cattle, beef cattle and calves). Using the relevant coefficients, the total pollutant dispersed loads from farm animals were obtained as 78210,9, 22098,2 and 3236,1 tons/ton live animal weight for BOD, TN and TP for 2020, respectively. For 2019, it was calculated as 80135,1, 22653 and 3337,5 ton/ton live animal weight for BOD, TN and TP, respectively. Since the pollution from livestock operation is not a point source pollutant, its harmful effects are quite large. In this study, attention is paid to the pollution dimensions, and the damages it can cause and the precautions that can be taken are emphasized.
