Manure Management

It's important that the dairy cow's environment is always kept clean. An important part of this process is the regular removal of manure.

The tie stall barn is equipped with a gutter system which, to the push of a button, takes manure away from behind the stalls to a manure storage location outside the barn.

Cow manure is an important fertilizer and soil conditioner because it provides necessary nutrients for the crops. Until cow manure can be used properly, it is stored to ensure that runoff does not escape and improperly enter nearby water sources. All of the manure from this farm's cows is used as fertilizer at the most appropriate and effective time in the crop production cycle.
