No bull-crap answers to frequently asked questions about crap management.
At ABI, we understand it takes a special kind of commitment to care for your animals and the land you own. One of the most time consuming and continuous tasks that often get overlooked on farms is proper manure management. But managing your animals’ manure doesn’t have to eat up all your time–all you need to effectively manage manure is a plan and the right equipment.
1Is A Manure Management Plan Really That Important?
Managing manure is more than just cleaning out stalls every day. It’s critical for the overall well-being of your property and animals. Particularly, the way you store and spread manure can make or break your farm’s health.
If you have experience cleaning stalls every day, you likely have realized how important it is to get your manure away from the barn and spread. With little to no pile from spreading regularly, you will be able to tell the difference in flies and odor. No one wants a smelly, fly-filled barn on a 95 degree summer day.
2What if I Don’t Have The Right Manure Spreader Tow Vehicle?
Hobby farmers often want to know what the best manure spreader for a small farm is–and what to do if they don’t have it. Now you may be thinking, “I only have a lawn mower or ATV, I can’t spread our huge pile!” If that’s the case, we have great news: ABI offers a size for any livestock owner, big or small. Ranging from a 25 cubic foot ground-driven spreader to a 185 cubic foot PTO driven spreader. All sizes of the spreader have the same components and only vary in the amount of manure that they can carry and spread. In summary, we got you covered.
3What Manure Spreader Equipment Will Last?
No one wants to waste money. The goal is to invest in reliable equipment that will get the job done for many years to come. What you need is a spreader built tough as a tank but easy for anyone to use. The ABI Classic Spreaders’ shred and spread design demonstrates the innovative technology that separates us from the rest of our competition.
Getting your animals manure shredded and spread can be a difficult task if you don’t have the correct tools. If the manure is spread in too large of clumps or not spread at all, it will take much longer to break down and decompose. The extra set of shredding bars in the ABI Classic Spreader can make pasture turn around time so much faster. This is because everything is being shredded into fine particles which take far less time for the sun to dry out and for rain to soak into the soil. That not only makes for a happy landowner but happy horses that can graze on lush green pastures.
With years of experience cleaning stalls every day, you begin to realize how important it is to get your manure away from the barn and spread. With little to no pile from spreading regularly, you will be able to tell the difference in flies and odor. No one wants a smelly, fly-filled barn on a 95 degree summer day.
