Slurry management on all types of farm
Proper slurry management is one of the main challenges of the future of the pig sector. Faced with growing pig numbers and increasingly more demanding administrative requirements in environmental terms, livestock waste limits the growth potential of farms, especially in areas with a high concentration of pig production or a scarcity of arable land.
If these farms have efficient solid separation systems, then this is the first step towards treating livestock waste and making financial gains from it. On-site separation of the liquid and solid phase of slurry means the same amount of slurry can be managed on less land for the liquid phase, and there is money to be made from the solid phase.
