Environmentally responsible hog manure management
Research conducted over the past 8 years by the Prairie Agricultural Machinery Institute has resulted in the development of hog manure management methods that reduce odour, improve pumping and transport efficiency and will allow the optimum crop application of this valuable nutrient source. Straw covered lagoons and soil injection dramatically reduces odor while improved pumping and handling systems result in reduced cost of application. In addition, research in soil application methods and rates of application will result in optimizing the fertilizer value of the manure while maintaining environmental quality.
