October 24, 2008, Mt. Sterling, KY — Manure Management doesn’t have to mean keeping up with the latest technology. It can be as simple as using gravity to separate solids from liquids.
Nooyen Manufacturing has developed the Tri-Bar Weep Wall system. A weep wall system consists of two basins separated by a drainage channel. With the Tri-Bar system, at each side of the drainage channel are Tri-Bar galvanized steel panels. When manure is added to a basin, liquids drain through the Tri-Bar Weep Walls into the drainage channel, while retaining solids in the basin. Having two basins allows a filled basin to drain and dry while the other is being filled. The consistency of the solids is dry enough to allow removal with a skid steer or loader. The solids from the basin can then be recycled as bedding, soil amendments, or marketed for additional income.
Mechanical systems are major contributors to energy use on the farm. Weep walls do not require additional energy, equipment or labor. Gravity does the work for you. In addition to start up costs, most manure separation systems require maintenance, repair, and training for employees to operate the system. With a weep wall system, there are no mechanical parts to upkeep.
