But by doing so, it will have an adverse effect as compare to conventional type where the manure will be dryer and can be collected after the batch. While with the fully automated system, the manure must be taken out everyday and manure are wet which is difficult to manage.

Could you please share your views on Poultry Industry for our readers?

If you want to make good crops, you must make a good soil.

Therefore, we think that livestock manure will become an important element of soil preparation in the future. To do that, the livestock industry is required to produce a good quality compost that is appealing to farmers. We think that it is time to focus on making compost that meets the needs of farmers without choosing an easy treatment method.
