Tools make manure handling easier

What’s New From the Shows: These tools could make life easier for livestock producers.

Companies added several new products to the lineup of tools and options for loading, spreading and handling manure over the past few months. No matter what type of manure you’re handling, processing and/or hauling, there’s a good chance one of these new products could be a good fit for your livestock operation.

Oxbo offers the large-capacity, self-propelled 5105 model to haul and inject manure. Get it done in one trip with this specialized machine. If you’re handling solid manure in a cattle or sheep operation, the new, low-profile Bunning spreaders from Norwood deserve a close look. They feature the same high-quality construction Norwood is known for, but now come in models with lower sides for easier loading with skid-steers and even front-end loaders.

Maybe you handle liquid manure in a dairy, hog or cattle feedlot operation, and you’re looking to cash in on the value of your manure, while being economically friendly to the environment by considering installing equipment to convert your manure into methane. If you are, then you will want to visit with the folks from Weston Associates who specialize in all kinds of domes and other structures which fit well with methane production systems from manure.

Be sure to use the contact information provided with each featured new product to learn more about the products which interest you the most.
