Often an under-valued resource, manure can increase crop productivity, improve water infiltration into the soil and reduce runoff and erosion. While many benefits can be reaped from this substitute fertilizer, safety must be a top priority when pumping, storing and handling manure.
In this 51st episode, SwineTime Podcast Host Spencer Wayne welcomes Marty Rost, environmental specialist with Pipestone, to talk about the valuable commodity we have in manure. The pair discuss the importance of understanding its value and making it work for you and your neighbors.
Rost talks about the differences in facilities he sees and shares insight on finding opportune times to pump a farm. Additionally, Wayne asks Rost to explain why safety is such a crucial part of manure management and to outline procedures to minimize health risks for both humans and livestock.
Pipestone's mission is "Helping Farmers Today Create the Farms of Tomorrow." The SwineTime podcast was created for pig farmers and individual pork producers around the country. Hosted by Wayne, the podcast contains pork industry news, advancements in animal care and how to enhance your productivity.
