Swine Manure Management Planning: How to Maintain Nutrient Value And Maintain Safe Lagoon Levels

Posted by FarmLab Innovations on Oct 8, 2019

Swine manure management planning is serious business. Swine farmers have to consider a variety of factors — ranging from how much water they use when cleaning their swine houses, to the weather itself.  The weather is a particular nuisance since there is little we can do to control the amount of rain we receive.  

But for farmers using either manure management system – deep pit or lagoons – managing the amount of water used during cleaning will have a big impact on successful manure management.  Farms that use SWASHHOUSE, however, know that because of the revolutionary product, they are able to utilize 30 percent less water during cleaning time.

Being able to use so much less water during cleaning time is a huge benefit to those in pig production.  For lagoon users — they do not have to race against the clock to pump out huge amounts of water if an unexpected rainstorm rolls through, if they’ve used significantly less water when cleaning farrowing crates, side walls, nurseries and finishers.  For deep pit users – reducing water used during cleaning helps them maintain the appropriate or higher nutrient value in the deep pit system on their farms much more easily. And this means more value to them.

Beyond reducing water usage during the cleaning process, SWASHHOUSE has also been shown to improve sanitation and reduce required cleaning time by as much as 50 percent.
