Manure and Water Management For Dairies

Manure management for dairy farms presents one of the most exciting opportunities available today. Why? Because so much of the dairy’s potential profit flows away or is hauled off the facility without properly recovering lucrative nutrients or reusing easily recyclable wastewater.

Leaving manure management in the antiquated treatment methods of yesterday is dangerous while at the same time wasteful for the financial health of your dairy. There is gold in that sludge. And harvesting it could significantly improve the bottom line of your dairy while removing pollutants that are monitored by government agencies.

Why should I worry about cleaning up the water?
How good is the bedding extracted from the manure?
How can I be sure I'm buying the right manure processor?
Who's going to run all this equipment?
What do I do with all the extra byproducts that I can't use?
Why should I worry about cleaning up the water?
Because the changes are coming. There is already legislation on the books that will require dairies to take dramatic steps to clean up water and CO2 footprints. What you spend now will be saved in future fines from the state.
How good is the bedding extracted from the manure?
It's the best. The highest grade bedding that you've ever seen. We only specify manure processors that produce high quality bedding. Older or less expensive models won't do this, wasting a tremendous amount of money.
How can I be sure I'm buying the right manure processor?
Not all manure processing equipment is the same. Figure 8 will match your dairy to the right solution. We aren’t locked into just one type of machine. But we are locked into providing your with the right fit.
Who's going to run all this equipment?
We will. That's the beauty of our operation. It's literally turn-key. Design, purchasing equipment, installation, operation and maintenance. We are your team at your dairy. You can do what you do best, being dairy farmers!
What do I do with all the extra byproducts that I can't use?
We can handle that two. Our process can also include distributing your excess byproducts. Bedding, water, energy. All handled without disrupting your dairy's operation. And making you money to boot.

Water is an essential part of your operation. And it presents many challenges, as well as opportunities. By implementing a solution for your water issues, you not only address nutrient recovery, but a variety of factors on your dairy.
