Farm-Ready Manure Management Options Sought
Thepigsite.com, March 19th
CANADA - The Executive Director of the Manitoba Livestock Manure Management Initiative says livestock producers are looking for practical farm-ready solutions they can use for dealing the nutrients contained in manure, Bruce Cochrane writes
The Manitoba Livestock Manure Management Initiative has issued a request for research proposals in the area of "Separated Manure Solids: Technical and Economic Evaluation of Beneficial Management Practices."
The research will focus on the storage, transportation and application of separated manure solids, post processing of separated manure solids, agronomic considerations and the market value of separated manure solids.
MLMMI Executive Director John Carney says, for anybody contemplating solid-liquid manure separation, it introduces a whole host of questions.
Mr Carney notes the deadline for submitting proposals is April 20, 2012 and the hope is the project can get underway in May.
