Compost Turners

RotoKing™ Compost Turner Machine

Composting Cattle Manure

The RotoKing™ compost turner machine features a very efficient design for composting cattle manure. This compost pile turner is used by Canadian dairy farms, cattle ranches in the USA, and dairy operations throughout Europe. Every dairy barn needs a good dairy cow manure management system. At Mid Valley Manufacturing, we recommend the RotoKing™ compost turner machine.

The best option for managing dairy waste involves converting manure into something useful through composting.

You can use your dairy solids to your advantage. Mid Valley Manufacturing in Abbotsford, BC Canada is one of North America’s leading dairy farm equipment suppliers. We carry the industrial grade RotoKing™ compost turner for sale, designed for composting cattle manure and for improved waste management. Mid Valley Mfg also services dairy farms throughout Canada, the USA and internationally.

Over recent years, dairy waste composting has increased in popularity. Instead of letting dairy waste build up, invest in a RotoKing™ compost turner machine and put your manure and composted materials to good use.

Composting Dairy Waste Process

Regular compost rotation can take months. With the RotoKing™, composting dairy manure can be accomplished within a four-week period. The compost turner equipment consists of several parts to complete the mixing and sterilization process, including:

  • 20 foot concrete channel
  • Bristled drum with mixing paddles
  • Encompassing canopy
  • 25 horsepower electric motor
  • User-friendly touchscreen control panel

RotoKing™ Compost Turner User Controls

The controls on the RotoKing™ dairy waste management system allow for bridge travel, drum control, and overall system controls. While easy to use and operate, this panel allows for great flexibility and versatility. Options include:

  • 4 programmable start times within 24 hours
  • Basic mix cycle
  • Batch process for extra dense material

Possible Compost Uses

The basic mix cycle on the compost turner machine uses the high volume blower to deliver air that dries the dairy waste faster. This is one of the main ways to accelerate composting dairy solids. Once the RotoKing™ compost turner completes the process, you now have well-mixed and dried compost. This makes the material perfect for:

  • Affordable animal bedding
  • Spreadable field or yard fertilizer
  • Composting agent
  • Sellable compost product

In Canada, as in many countries, you can only sell animal waste if it’s processed properly. Our RotoKing™ compost turner machine allows you to remove all pathogens from the dairy waste material. With RotoKing™ composting, your dairy farm can prosper by saving time and money, and turning dairy waste into other reusable products, including animal bedding. Along with the RotoKing™ for composting cattle manure, we also offer sawdust blower systems for fast animal bedding.

See our project page highlighting the Biosolids Treatment Facility in Ladysmith for an example of how we used the RotoKing™ compost turner machine to also compost human biosolids!
