If you have your own horses, we’re sure you know how much poop they produce for you to clean up each day. And we’re here to tell you that you can very well build your own horse poop composting system to aid with your never-ending supply of horse poop. Our article features a DIY of a horse manure system.
When it comes to working on construction projects, we highly recommend the hot summer days for outside work. And you’ll also be able to properly manage all the horse manure that you collect each day. Throughout the world, composting is quite an enjoyable technique that can be employed as a successful solution to manure.
In order to start constructing your very own composting pile, it’s best to select an area that not only high but also completely levelled. We suggested a high spot because lower levels tend to create a really soggy mess of everything. And also keep in mind that you should place your composter a great distance away from any water supply. Horse manure fertilizer composting process will be better in the place where far from water. These being water bodies, creeks, wetlands and any ditches that may be relatively close.
After you’ve chosen the perfect location, it’s time to get to building. You’ll need to now acquire roughly three bins for this venture. This system simply works by you filling the first and allowing the composting process to begin. And, once the first is completed you can move on and start filling your second bin.
When the first bin has been properly completed, you can now begin to start making use of your compost materials. And if you have quite a large number of horses, you can of course increase your bin number. In essence, one will be used for storing the finished product, the other will be used for the horse dung composting stage and of course the third will be used for daily clean up.
After you’ve figured out how much bins as well as the size you desire, you’re going to need to head on to the hardware store and make your purchase of the following materials:
For this example, we will illustrate with an 8foot * 8foot * 4foot bin.
-Heavy straps for attaching a tarp to your bin
-Tarp for covering your bin
-160, 3inch deck screws
-110, 8foot timber
-8, 8foot * 6inch * 6inch treated posts
And you’ll also need the following equipment to put your compost bins together:
-Drill with screwdriver head and drill bits
-Post hole digger
After you’ve purchased your materials, you’re going to need to plan or even experiment with your own compost bin design. And when it comes to the building stage, this project can be done in literally 2 day’s time. When your horse manure is fully composted, you can begin to reap the full benefits by enriching your soil and even preventing diseases as well as pests which can take your plants down to nothing.
As we conclude, we have just briefly looked at a DIY for a horse manure compost set up. Additionally, composting also allows a significant reduction in the need for adding chemical fertilizers. And it also allows the production of beneficial bacteria in your soil that aids with creating nutrient juiced materials.
