and Implications Air emissions (NH 3 , PM 10 , and PM 2.5 ) from a tom turkey grow-out barn (60 x 335 ft) in Iowa have been continually quantified for one year, involving 3 grow-out flocks of toms grown from 35 to 140 days of age. Daily emission rate (ER) varied from 0.04 to 6.4 g/bird-d for NH 3 , from 0.04 to 1.6 g/bird-d for PM 10 , and from 0.002 to 0.137 g/bird-d for PM 2.5 . Cumulative emissions for flock 1, 2, and 3, expressed as grams per bird marketed, were, respectively, 215, 143, and
