How to Build a Manure Composting System

There are several ways that you can compost manure, some of which are better than others. Today we’re going to take a look at how you can build waste management bins that are suited for horses. Even when discussing these bins there are many different options and techniques you can use during the construction process. While the following system may not be right for you, we hope it benefits at least a few of our customers.

The first step is deciding how many bins you need. This of course depends on the number of horses you have, but in general you should have at least two. With two bins, you can pile manure in one of them and stall waste in the other. Like we mentioned, a third bin may be necessary if you have several horses.

Next, you need to decide where you’re going to build the bins. Select a site that’s not close to any wetlands, ditches, or anything else like that. If you have questions, you may want to look up your local regulations regarding this matter. The exact rules may vary from county to county.

Finally, you’re going to need to get the right materials and start building. You can expect to spend a few hundred dollars on each bin before all is said and done. For an exact list of supplies and step by step instructions, check out the link below.
