North Carolina hog farms use lagoon-sprayfield systems to manage manure. These lagoons are filling with sludge, and managing it is a real challenge:
- It is becoming increasingly expensive to source contractors to remove sludge from lagoons.
- Contractors move the sludge into geobags, and leave it up to the farmers to dispose of the sludge.
- Suitable farm land is almost impossible to find. This is a headache for farmers.
Hundreds of geobags are sitting on farms in NC with nowhere to go.
Less than 5% of hog lagoons in NC have been desludged yet.
What are you going to do when the time comes to desludge your lagoon?
