Why should we manage goat waste?

In order to raise healthy goats and ensure them thrive, farmers need to daily remove their waste from the shelter. Thus, a daily sweeping of the goat yard and shelter keeps the goats clean and free from parasites. Do not underestimate the quantity of wastes that a single goat can produce. It is estimated that a single goat’s manure plus its wasted food and hay can exceed 2200 lbs. (1000 kg) per year. Consequently, having in advance a solid and legitimate waste management policy will keep farmers secured against environmental (e.g. water pollution) and health problems or violations of local laws. So, goat waste management is very important.

How to dispose goat litter?

There are generally two ways to make goat waste management, which are composting and make them into fertilizer. Composting could kill the parasite and other bacterias of the goat waste. If you have a high budget, you can also choose to make it into fertilizer, which could bring more benefits.

Goat poop for compost

Farmers and ranchers have known that adding nutrient-rich animal manure to their fields and pastures enriches the soil and increases the crop harvest. Composting is an easy and economical way to create a rich soil amendment for their gardens and flowerbeds, which makes it an attractive compost choice for many gardeners. Spread goat manure directly on your garden soil approximately six months before planting time, ideally during the early fall. Composted manure can add nutrients to the soil, promote healthier plant growth, and increase crop yields without the use of harmful chemicals.

You can’t use goat waste directly, for fresh goat excrement is high in pathogens, parasites, and their eggs, as well as other potentially dangerous substances, which will do harm to your soil.

Fresh goat excrement, on the other hand, may decompose in the soil, releasing heat that will scorch plant roots.

Microorganisms will digest organic waste and convert it to nutrients if goat dung is composted before application.

Simultaneously, the heat generated during composting can reach 60 to 70°C, which is sufficient to kill the above-mentioned hazardous material.

After composting, you’ll have safe and useful goat manure compost.

When it comes to composting goat manure, the moisture content (50 percent -60 percent is ideal), temperature, and also should consider oxygen concentration.

When these bacteria transform organic materials into nutrition, they use oxygen and water.

Furthermore, if the heat they generated is too high, it will kill the bacteria. As a result, you must maintain rigorous control over the following factors:

To begin, prepare the basic materials for composting. Auxiliaries, can add sawdust and straw in addition to goat dung.

Second, goat manure and auxiliary materials can be stacked together and stack them in long rows or put into fermenting grooves.

Windrow compost piles are typically 0.8 to 1.5 m in height, 1.5 to 2 m in breadth, and 2 m or more in length.

Lastly, until the fermentation is complete, you should turn the compost pile continuously. It’s adequate to do it 2-4 times each day for the first week and once every two days for the subsequent weeks.

The benefits of using goat manure as fertilizer

Goat manure is an excellent organic fertilizer for gardens and crops. It is rich in nutrients and minerals that help plants grow strong and healthy. Goat manure also helps improve soil structure, making it more aerated and able to hold more water. So, it is very important to make goat waste management.

Using goat manure as fertilizer has many benefits for both plants and gardeners. For plants, goat manure provides essential nutrients and minerals that promote growth. It also improves soil structure, making the soil more aerated and able to hold more water. This can be especially beneficial during periods of drought or extended dry weather. For gardeners, using goat manure as fertilizer saves money on purchasing commercial fertilizers, and it is a sustainable way to recycle animal waste. So, goat waste management is very important

How to make fertilizer using goat waste?

Dewatering: because there exists too much water in the fresh goat manure, so it is important to dewater. You can choose our company’s solid-liquid separator machine, which could separate the solid goat manure from liquid manure.

Composting process: the first step is to compost, for composting could kill many harmful bacteria. For small goat farmers or production line, we recommend moving type compost turner. It is very easy to operate, you can drive it forward, backward. For middle or large farms, we suggest you choose crawler compost turner, whose working efficiency and productivity are very high.

Crushing process: you can use the crusher to make powder fertilizer, we recommend you new type vertical crusher, which could help you crush the material efficiently.

Screening process: this step is mainly screen the uneven materials, for in the process of crushing, there may exist agglomeration.

Granulating process: after screening, the materials will be sent to granulator with the help of conveyor belt. Manure pellet machine will turn powder fertilizer into granular. We recommend you new type fertilizer granulator, which using the mechanical stirring force of high-speed rotation and the resulting aerodynamic force.

Granulator Used for Goat Waste Management

Screening process: this step is mainly screen the unqualified particles and ensure the quality of the final products. We recommend you use rotary screening machine, which has high screening efficiency, low noise, small dust volume and long service life.

Drying and cooling process: the surface of the particles have moisture, so you need a drying and cooling machine to dry and cool them, which is convenient for packaging process.

Coating process: it is to avoid the agglomeration of the particles.

Coating Machine for Goat Waste Management

Packaging process: we recommend you automatic quantitative packaging scales, which are specially designed for quantitative packaging, and are divided into double-bucket packing scales and single-bucket packing scales. Adopt integrated structure, small scale height, compact structure, energy saving and high efficiency.
