Case Study: BF01
Cows: 300 Spring Calving
- Existing storage was a blocked off barrier drain which was pumped to a few paddocks via a petrol trash pump.
- Wanted a turnkey solution that ticked all the boxes now and into the future.
Given the flat layout of the cowshed, a new line was thrusted into the centre of the yard to gain height. All effluent directed into a manual rainwater diverter before stone trap & 25m3 effluent sump, stone trap cleanings are periodically stored in a sealed tailings bunker.
All effluent transferred to a suitably sized HDPE lined storage pond. Stored effluent then stirred and pumped down the farm when soil conditions suit.
