Manure Treatment System
Livestock Water Recycling, Inc. introduces the new Manure Treatment System that completely treats and recycles manure liquids.
This economic new system pumps manure straight from the cistern of the livestock barns, extracts out the bulk solids, and sequentially removes fine solids from the liquid stream by the use of mechanical processes and chemical treatment. The outputs from this innovative new system are a pileable solid, a very low-odor nutrient concentrate and clean potable water. The solids can be piled and moved onto adjacent lands as required. Once the manure solids are removed, up to 70 percent of the remaining liquid is recovered water. This water is processed and can be reused in the barns or on the land. This will assist livestock producers with any water-shortage issues. The liquid concentrate can be used as fertilizer on the existing lands or sold. The benefits of this full cycle treatment system are numerous. By isolating and concentrating the solid and nutrient portion of the manure liquids from the water, the volume of product is greatly reduced. This saves time and money by reducing spreading and transport costs. Storage of this reduced volume is more manageable. This process reduces the reliance on lagoons for storage and therefore alleviates any associated odor issues. The producer gains greater control over the concentration of nutrients on lands. Best of all, the capital cost of the system is very economical. Depending on the size of the operation, the system is priced between $400,000 and $600,000.

Sysilco Automated Closure System
Superior Mat and Comfort Inc., is pleased to introduce the Sysilco Automated Closure System for bunker silos.
Designed to overcome the obstacles that are associated with bunker silo covering and storage, the system has been in use for six years in the Netherlands.
Available for a number of bunker configurations, the system is designed for a single operator in mind. It is made up of a reusable, high quality cover and a self winding reel that can be mounted on the wall of the bunk or at ground level for silage piles.
Tires, plastic and gravel bags are replaced by the cover with waterlines filled with a non-toxic glycol solution that seal and provide weight over the bunk and feed face. The liquid is stored in a bladder or tank near the bunker. The mechanized drive system can uncover and recover most bunkers in less than half an hour by a hand held remote device and a self winding reel. Benefits of the Sysilco Automated Closure System include:
• Labor efficiency. A single open and close operation reduces labor cost.
• Minimum exposure of feed. More timely closure ensures fermentation commences quickly.
• Layered storage. An opportunity to fill your storage by cut layers to provide consistent forage throughout the year.
• Biosecurity. High quality cover keeps feed from avian contamination and deters rodents.
• Quality product. Reduction of dry matter loss by limiting exposure (including feed face) to rain and snow.
