Manure Waste Management

Every cattle barn needs a good manure management system. At Mid Valley Manufacturing, we highly recommend the RotoKing compost turning equipment because it is so versatile and cost effective.

In recent years, our government has taken a more serious view of manure management in Canada, and the treatment of stored manure. They define composting solid manure as A type of aerobic treatment that kills pathogens, reduces volume and odours, and leaves stable humus that is easier to handle, either for spreading on land or for packing and selling to others.”

Our RotoKing compost turner for sale uses a forced aeration technique. It quickly separates the water and dries the manure for more efficient composting. The final compost can then be utilized on the farm, including for cow bedding.

Invest in a RotoKing compost turning machine and put your manure and composted materials to good use faster.

This BC Ministry of Agriculture PDF file on Farm Composting offers additional information on composting.

In Vessel Composting vs Windrow Composting

This manure compost turning equipment can process practically any type of organic waste in large quantities. From animal manure to meat, food scraps and biosolids, the in-vessel composting method requires a lot less space than the windrow composting method.

Other benefits include:

  • Good control of the environment
  • Control of airflow, temperature, and moisture
  • The length (size and capacity) of the vessel can vary
  • Careful control of the climate allows year-round use
  • Very little odour or leachate produced
  • Uses less land, labour, and energy than windrow composting

This method of in-vessel composting takes only a few weeks to complete. Before it can be used, the pile will need a few more weeks to cool and to allow the microbial activity to balance.

Possible Compost Uses

To allow the air to dry the dairy waste faster, the compost turning equipment utilizes a high-volume blower during the mix cycle. The blower helps to to accelerate composting manure and other waste solids. Once the RotoKing compost turner completes the process, you now have well-mixed, completely 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 allows you to remove all pathogens from the dairy waste material.

Your beef, poultry, hog, or dairy farm can prosper by saving time and money. The compost turning equipment can quickly turn animal waste into other reusable products like animal bedding. Mid Valley also offers sawdust blower systems to accommodate faster animal bedding.

Biosolids Management

Our RotoKing compost turner for sale has even been utilized for biosolids management. See our project page highlighting the Biosolids Treatment Facility in Ladysmith, BC. This is a good example of how a compost turning machine can be utilized to also compost human biosolids!

Composting FAQs

Composting methods may vary but in general, composting cow manure can take anywhere from 3 to 6 months.

It takes a minimum of 2 weeks for the bacteria in the center of a compost pile to generate and release heat, which is necessary for composting. Turning compost every 2-4 weeks will help quicken the manure composting process.

Raw cow manure has a strong smell but once it has been composted, the composition of the “rotted” manure is different and has no foul odor.

Turning a compost pile helps to not only control the smell but also prevents the anaerobic bacteria from dominating, which can slow down the composting process.

On a scale of 0 – 14, a pH level from 0 to 6 is considered acidic whereas a pH level of 7 is considered neutral. Cow manure is generally somewhere between 8 and 12 on the pH scale.
