Odor measurement is a requirement for science based improvement in controlling odor emissions from livestock facilities. The Biosystems and Agricultural Engineering Department at the University of Minnesota developed an olfactometer laboratory to measure odor threshold and intensity. Laboratory layout and odor panelist selection and training are important for obtaining reliable results. Procedures used in the new lab are described.
