Efficiently managing manure is an important aspect of caring for horses. Storing fecal matter is unsightly, malodorous, attracts flies, takes up valuable space, can pollute nearby stream and ponds, and is typically costly to remove from the farm. Composting is a viable option for virtually any equine operation, regardless of size.

This free report provides a detailed overview of composting so you can decide if it’s right for your operation. Complete details from how to choose the right compost location to how to assess the maturity of the compost are outlined in this quick read.
