INL releases new open-source manure software

The Idaho National Laboratory has released multiple new open-source software projects, including a program aimed at helping with manure management decisions.

Fine solids separation system installed at WA dairy

Washington State’s watersheds scored a win in late August as agricultural waste company, Regenis, installed the first phosphorous recovery system west of the Cascades at Edaleen Dairy in Lynden, WA.


Park a portable Frac Tank right next to the field and have the manure delivered to the tank. Then pump the liquid manure directly into the spreader or drag hose system. Each Frac tank holds 21,000 gallons, and it’s portable to fields that are farther away. That means you can maintain continuous flow on the land, regardless of how many delivery trucks you may have on a given day. So you get a more even application within a tighter time frame by adding a Frac tank to the operation.

Livestock manure: an option for replenishing soil nutrients in hay fields

When hay is harvested nutrients are removed from the field. A ton of alfalfa removes approximately 13 pounds of phosphorus (as P2O5) and 50 pounds of potash (as K2O).

Many hay fields are not pure alfalfa. The acidic soils of the southern and eastern parts of the state make it difficult to maintain an alfalfa or clover stand so a mixed stand of grass and alfalfa/clover is common. Stands in older fields are often just mostly grass. A grass hay crop will remove just as many nutrients per ton as an alfalfa crop. The big difference is that the annual yields from grass hay fields are usually about 1.3 tons per acre lower than alfalfa fields.
