High rapid composting of dairy cattle manure with crop and forest residues

High rapid composting of dairy cattle manure with crop and forest residues

Transactions of the ASAE American Society of Agricultural Engineers 26(2): 533-541, 545

Dairy manure was composted in a batch type enclosed composter without regular mixing for 7 days. The maximum decomposition was obtained in the range 65-70 deg C at initial moisture contents between 55.5 and 64.6% (w.b.) initial pH value 7.8 to 8.3 and 0.87 to 1.07 l/min kg per volatile matter of air. Carbon dioxide content in effluent gas was around 4.7 to 7.5% per volume at 68 deg C.
