This study was conducted to evaluate the organic removal efficiencies and sludge production in aerobic and anaerobic digestion of swine manure. A laboratory single-stage, high-rate, anaerobic digester was operated at 5, 10, 25 and 30 day's HRT at the temperature of 35$\circ$C, and also aerobic digester operated at 10, 20 and 28.6 day's HRT at the temperature of 20$\circ$C. The conclusions from this study are as follows: 1. While the BOD removal efficiency by anaerobic digestion was 30 to 75%, it was 99% over by aerobic digestion. 2. The sludge production was similar in both aerobic and anaerobic digestion. 3. The gas production was 0.21 to 0.55 m$^3$/kg VS fed by anaerobic digestion.
