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.
