Topic

Horse waste is removed from the farm periodically by first storing it in containers.  A dump trailer or a manure spreader are used and emptied once or twice a week.  Waste containment is essential and, in some areas, is required to meet strict standards.  Some are portable containers, and others are permanent areas that need emptying with a mechanical bucket or scraper.

Many farms make a pile, usually away from the barn, picked up regularly.  Some ordinances require that these containers are leakproof with a water containment system such as three walls and a front lip.  Remember, there is contaminated runoff when rain falls on a manure pile.  Also, keep in mind where your water well is located and keep the pile far from that.  A pile will create heat which will cook the parasites and kill them.  However, this will not occur on the external surfaces, so spreading your pile on horse pastures is still not good.

Waste containers range from garbage cans to barrels to full-size roll-back containers.  These are picked up regularly and replaced with an empty container. Remember to clean up spilled waste around the containers.  Again, some ordinances require water leakage containment from these too. 

There are plenty of images here to show this.
