Manure Composting with Jeff Endres
Source: Soil + Water: Conservation Conversations
Jeff Endres, president of the farmer-led group Yahara Pride Farms, shares his experience and advice on composting. Jeff farms with his family in Waunakee, WI where they have a dairy operation, Endres Berryridge Farms. About eight years ago, they began experimenting with composting as a way to handle their bedded pack manure during the summer months. When a decision regarding manure management for a new heifer facility came about, they went all in on composting: they built a covered composting space and invested in a custom made turner. Tune in to learn what works for the Endres, and hear how they’ve transformed their on-farm composting system.
