Hi, I’m Jeff Andres I am from Waunakee, Wisconsin, so we’re doing this composting project here in in the Ohio watershed to help reduce the amount of phosphorus that gets into the waterways into the Chain of Lakes of Madison which Would also contain the Ohio River which flows into the Rock River and eventually into the Mississippi 70% of the phosphorus that gets into this Chain of Lakes and stream is Is a rural Rural in nature The land basis is narrowing for farmers to be able to maintain enough land to Perform sound nutrient management practices on so what we’re trying to do with the introducing composting to this region is to alleviate some of the Need of spreading manure on farm fields and be able to create a product that we can move either out of the watershed or to farms that need the fertility and this is a key component to the future of agriculture in this region and So what we’ve done is we’ve taken pen package or started with pen pack manure putting it in wind rows and turning it about a Probably about 10 to 12 times Over the summer months And creating a usable product at the end of the year That could be spread on farmer’s fields for fertilizer and other Soil amendment or soil health type products so What we’ve been able to learn so far is that The the we have a Prada that is very valuable just coming out from normal pen pack barns with the Straw base or corn stock base bedding carbon mix in it When we’re when we’re done with the composting we’re ending up with a product, that’s about 35 to 40 percent moisture with a fertilizer value analysis of real close to the 20 parts nitrogen ten parts phosphorus and 30 parts of potassium Value somewhere probably in that 30 to 40 range on fertilizer So that allows us to start thinking and looking into transporting this product to the field further further distances away from where the livestock Density is less we have The ability to spread it at that analysis that a couple ton to the acre, which will meet most needs of a growing crop for P&K With the idea that you’d have the supplement nitrogen for corn additional nitrogen for corn So through this project where we’re analyzing the cost of creating the wind rolls turning the wind rose transporting the the the finished product spreading the product and Also looking into the yield response on the at the end So in order for this to be sustainable it has to be economical for the farmer the farmers that are creating the the manure obviously have invested They have money invested in that fertility. It’s coming off their fields or its, but it’s coming in in their in their purchase feeds They have they have some value there that they should be and really should have the right to to you know be able to get a that value back in some way, and I think we’re creating a Scenario here that it is cost-effective to make this product They can recoup some of their their their their money that they have invested in the product And yet the end user can’t get the value as well You
