How to Compost Horse Manure?
Many horse farms dispose of their manure by spreading it over pastures. But in fact, this is not the real composting work. The best way to compost horse manure is aerobic decompose. This composting process occurs in the presence of oxygen and a little moisture. So, you can compost horse manure and straw together with a horse manure composting machine. Our horse manure compost machine mainly adopts the aerobic fermentation technology to decompose the organic matter in horse wastes. You can collect the horse waste and stack them in a fermentation groove in a corner of your horse farm.

It produces high levels of odorous and noxious wastes, such as ammonia gas. In order to solve this unpleasant problem, the turning is necessary in the horse manure composting process. If you are dealing with a small amount of horse manure, you can turn the compost piles by yourself. But if there are large amount of horse wastes need to be composted, you can improve your work efficiency with a horse manure compost turning machine.
How to Monitor the PH in Horse Manure Composting Process?
It is worth measuring the PH of compost in horse manure composting systems. During the horse manure composting process, the aerobic microorganisms operate best under neutral to acidic conditions, with pH’s in the range of 5.5 to 8. During the primary stages of horse manure decomposition, organic acids are formed. The acidic conditions are favorable for growth of fungi and breakdown of lignin and cellulose. As composting proceeds, the organic acids become neutralized, and horse mature compost generally has a pH between 6 and 8. So, whether the compost PH is too high or too low, both are not benefit to the composting process. If the compost PH below 5.5, you can add lime or wood ash and mix them well. If the compost PH is too high and over 8, you need to add acid materials for better composting environment.

Compost needs to be hot enough to kill the undesirable factors, but overheating can kill many of the beneficial organisms needed for decomposition. Ideally the pile will reach temps of 120°F – 160°F for several weeks and then naturally cool down.
- Adjust moisture in horse manure compost piles. the compost piles should not too soggy or too dry, which will cause it to smell and not decompose properly. Keep it covered and only add water as needed.
- Minimize the amount of bedding in the compost pile. Straw, wood chips, shavings or sawdust (all organic wastes are high in carbon) will slow down the composting process or even cause it not to complete. When added to soil, high-carbon compost can also cause nitrogen deficiency in plants and turn their leaves yellow.
