On dairy farms, the liquid waste stream from milking sheds and associated yards is generally referred to as effluent. It consists of the manure and urine excreted in the milking shed and yards, mixed with the wash-down water used to remove the waste from these areas and concrete yard runoff following rainfall. Consequently, it contains dissolved and suspended nutrients, salts and organic matter. Detergents and small amounts of spilt milk may also be present in effluent.
At Think Water Adelaide, we can design, supply and install an effluent system to suit your dairy/stock farm. If you’ve got crops and you want to maximise your yields, visit us at Think Water Peats Ridge for the design, supply and installation of a fertigation and control system kit.
