The Tru-Grit Manure Sand Saver has been chosen a 2006 World Ag Expo Top Ten New Product.
The Tru-Grit Manure Sand Saver has been chosen a 2006 World Ag Expo Top Ten New Product. A selection committee comprised of farmers and agribusiness professionals reviewed 136 nominations for the New Product award. As a Top Ten finalist, the Tru-Grit Manure Sand Saver was featured in the New Product Center at the 2006 World Ag Expo held in Tulare, California in February.
Parkson’s Manure Sand Saver removes and washes bedding sand from sand-laden dairy manure. The clean, dry, odorless, recovered sand is ready to be reused as replacement sand in stalls. Recycling bedding sand can mean a significant reduction in sand replacement costs. Typically, the savings in sand can justify the purchase of a Tru-Grit Manure Sand Saver unit within one year, says the company. Other savings from downstream equipment wear and the maintenance of sand clogged lagoons can further shorten that payback period.
Sand Saver units are completely enclosed and constructed of stainless steel. The sand washing process can use a reclaimed water source including screened lagoon water. Because the unit runs on demand, energy costs are low. Tru-Grit Manure Sand Saver units are said to be easy to maintain and require little operator attention. Manure Sand Saver units can meet the needs of various size barns.
