Interest in manure composting is growing among farmers due to potential benefits associated with storing, hauling and application flexibility to established hay and other crops. Composting refers to the process of aerating solid manure piles to encourage more rapid and complete decomposition of organic matter which produces heat and reduces volume.  Composted manure generally contains fewer weed seeds and pathogens, has less odor and provides a more stable and concentrated source of soil nutrients and organic matter. Manure composting methods can be adapted to farms of all sizes and livestock types.
