In addition, for horse manure management, many will choose to turn it into organic fertilizer. Because it contains rich nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium elements. But most organic matter exists in the form of cellulose and hemicellulose, which are not easy to absorb by crops and plants. However, after composting, these cellulose and hemicellulose will become small molecules. Plants can absorb it quickly and easily.

How to turn horse manure into compost?

For compost organic horse manure, it is advisable to adopt hot composting method, namely aerobic fermentation method. As the name suggests, it mainly makes use of higher temperature (60℃-70℃) to kill substances in horse waste. In this process, oxygen supply is necessary. This is the reason why microorganisms can act to decompose organic matter and generate enough heat to create a high temperature environment. Compared with other fermentation methods, after hot composting, there are better effect and no odor.

Which machine is suitable for your organic horse manure compost?

How do composters work to compost horse manure fast?

During the aerobic fermentation of horse waste, oxygen is key to facilitating microorganisms to compost materials. When materials oxygen content is lower than 5%, microorganism activity will be inhabited. It will lead to anaerobic fermentation and generate odor. But after using a suitable compost turner, it is easy to complete. It can break down agglomerate in to small particle size, which has a larger contact area with oxygen. In addition, machine turning will increase the porosity of organic materials. So oxygen can enter the horse manure compost piles.

The same goes for the moisture content of fertilizer fermentation. When it is lower than 40%, the decomposition bacteria activity will decrease. And over 60% water content will hamper the transportation of oxygen and affect fertilizer fermentation. Here, because composting is a temperature rising process, under the action of composter turning, the moisture content of compost piles will decrease continuously. Then how to add water to horse manure compost making? We can offer you horse manure compost equipment with a water tank.

The above two actions can help the temperature of horse manure increase to 60 quickly. Only when the temperature reaches 60℃, the harmful substances in manure will die. However, it cannot exceed 70℃, which will kill beneficial bacteria in organic fertilizer materials. Don’t worry. Composter turning is also helpful for dissipating excessive heat.
