Manure management of swine facilities utilizing the solid manure system from a High-Rise™ swine finishing building offers expanded economic and environmental risk management opportunities for nutrient utilization. Solid manure of high nutrient densities similar to poultry manure can be produced depending on management techniques employed. Manure can be processed further through composting, which is partially accomplished in the building prior to removal. Due to the handling characteristics of solid manure, the goals of broader nutrient distribution and recycling, more environmentally safe storage and land application, and reduced odor nuisance potential can be achieved with this new system.
