Waste Containers

Containing waste on a farm just makes sense and in some communities such as Wellington, FL, there are strict laws on how it is done.
These photos have captions to express any thoughts I have on the picture. The idea here is for YOU to get ideas, so grab a cup of coffee, darken the room, grab a pen and paper to write notes, and sit back and enjoy. I have more shots and I’ll add them later as I have time.

It is unhealthy to spread manure onto the fields where horses graze. On most small farms, if you can’t spread it, then you must remove it. If this is the case, then the waste must be contained until it can be removed.

This can be as simple as picking a spot or it may require containment of the seepage and runoff so it doesn’t contaminate the ground water. Here are the solutions many farms have found for waste containment.

Discussion to follow. If you want me to move this up on the schedule, let me know.
