Innovative and New Management Practices
With the removal of manure solids, the storage life of a structure will be increased and costs can be saved due to the decreased need for sludge removal.
The buildup of phosphorus, copper, and zinc in the sludge will be reduced.
Where lagoons are not effectively treating waste, solids removal may reduce the waste load to a level where proper anaerobic treatment can occur.
