Here is a look into what goes into providing the cows on our farm clean soft comfortable beds to lie in. The pictures are from start to finish and show how we take solid manure sterilize and dry it, with a process similar to composting, the finished product is essentially soil we then use for bedding. On our farm we use 95% of the solid manure from the cows as bedding as an effort to recycle all we can and leave a minimal environmental footprint.
Just remembered I had this post saved as a draft and never published it, silly me!
Here are some pictures of how we prepped the soil (using a little overkill) for our garden.
We use our loader to get a scoop of the compost we make from the manure our cows leave behind.
We mixed the compost into the soil to add vital nutrients that allows our vegetables to grow.
The finished product!
