What is the procedure of making compost from poultry manure?

If you want to make compost from poultry manure, there are lots of compostable raw materials. For example, chicken manure, duck manure, goose feces, turkey waste, pigeon and quail waste, etc. You can choose to collect poultry manure from local farms. However, if you have a poultry farm, it is easier to get enough compost materials. Generally speaking, the procedure of your poultry manure composting process can be divided into the following steps:

Collect manure and bedding

The first important thing you need to do is to collect the poultry litter and their bedding together to prepare enough materials for composting. What is the function of the bedding? Common bedding materials include wood shavings, sawdust, peanut hulls, shredded sugar cane, straw, etc. They are dry, absorbent, low-cost organic materials. So it can reduce the water content of poultry manure to make it more suitable for composting and organic fertilizer making. Moreover, these brown organic materials can provide enough carbon for your composting system. So, you can mix these organic wastes together to get carbon and nitrogen balance.

Regulating moisture content

Water is an important factor in the composting process. Proper moisture content can facilitate the poultry manure composting process. Here, SEEC recommends you to keep the moisture content at 50%-60%. In this condition, the activity of microorganisms is relatively active, and various substances dissolved in water also provide nutrients for microorganisms. Of course, if the material is too dry, you can add water to the pile. On the contrary, you can use our poultry manure dewatering machine to remove excess water.

Adjust the particle size

According to the experimental data, when we crush the material before fermentation, their degradation rate can be more than doubled. Because the smaller the material particle size, the larger the oxygen contact area, the better aerobic fermentation effect. Here, both new type vertical compost crusher and semi-wet fertilizer grinder are excellent choice for manure crushing.

Aerobic hot composting and turned regularly

Finally, the most important step is turning manure piles regularly to speed up aerobic hot composting. In the enough supply of oxygen, microorganisms can rapidly decompose organic matter in poultry manure. And generated heat can kill harmful substances in raw materials. So, while the poultry wastes composting process, you need to turn the compost piles.

How does poultry manure composting system recognize the fermentation is done and the manure is fully composted?

In generally, the poultry manure composting machine need to stir compost piles frequently. Then the temperature of materials can quickly increase to 60 ℃, which is hot enough to kill harmful substance in poultry manure. Then you need to turn over compost materials regularly to prevent the temperature from over 70 ℃. This is the key to keeping the activity of beneficial bacteria. When the temperature drop to 30 ~ 45 ℃, the less times you should do turning work. Finally, when the temperature no long changing, the poultry farm waste is fully fermented. For effective turning, compost turning machine is important.
