Cattle manure

Cattle manure is the excrement and waste excreted by animals alone or mixed, even though it might have been transformed. Normally, different types of cattle manure are distinguished (solid manure, liquid manure, hen droppings) depending on the origin and dry matter content.

The natural, most immediate destination for the cattle manure is the application in agricultural lands, as in the majority of cases it helps in maintaining/increasing the soil's content in organic material (and indirectly its physical fertility) and always a source of nutritional elements for crops. When the stockbreeder does not have a sufficient territorial base to correctly apply the cattle manure generated on the farm from the agricultural view, they must resort to a treatment system in the farm itself, either a waste manager or a system that gathers the two previous aspects.
