The manure on farms and the types of pollution it produces

It is well known that intensive animal production systems can create huge pollution problems, due to the large amounts of substances they produce. Such is the case of contamination by manure.

Some types of contamination are:

Atmosphere

  • Bad smells
  • Choking gases
  • Irritating gases
  • Denitrification

Water

  • Leaching
  • Eutrophication
  • Fecal pathogens
  • Pollution

Ground

  • PH variation
  • Salinity
  • Heavy metals
  • Pathogens
  • Excess NO2 and NO3
  • K (Tetania)
  • Water retention

Therefore, it is recommended that the farms be located in uninhabited places or far from the population.

However, the manure, if treated and handled correctly, it can become an excellent organic fertilizer.

In a farm equipped with battery cages, the correct way to treat the manure is with belt, a manure belt with optimal handling can last up to 10 years. In Jat we manufacture them with the specifications that each client requires, ask us!
