In a composting cattle barn, a system of aerobic, oxygen loving, ‘good bugs’ are used to compost effluent produced by livestock. This ensures the bedding stays dry and comfortable for your cattle along with providing the best chance of ensuring the wellbeing and health of your herd. Once removed from the shed this compost can be used as a nutrient rich, organic fertiliser.
In a composting cattle barn, it is essential to have excellent composting medium and ventilation management for the barn to perform at optimum level. Barns must also have appropriate bedding in sufficient amounts. To ensure correct ventilation, bedding should be aerated twice a day to refresh the surface and enhance microbial activity within the composting medium.
Without adequate aeration, microbial activity will be slowed or lessened, this is because most microorganisms contributing to the breakdown of the organic matter in your barn are aerobic, meaning oxygen loving. Therefore, with less microbial activity, composting takes much longer. However, with suitable aeration, the pile temperature is able to increase quickly, therefore speeding up the composting process.
Although micro-organisms tend to go unnoticed, they are an integral ‘player’ in your compost barn, as they are responsible for the majority of all organic material breakdown. Look after them little guys!
"We needed to get in and break the clogs up underneath and get air into our wood chip. We were struggling with the old cultivator we had. This machine goes down much deeper. In the last fortnight it is doing a marvelous job and we have seen massive improvement in the last 12-14 days since we hooked this machine up".
