http://www.extension.org/67703 In high yielding row crop intensive regions the role of swine manure as a crop nutrient source has increased in value, replacing the purchase of increasingly expensive commercial fertilizer by providing the nutrient needs of crops. Nutrients from manure are recycled to fertilize high yielding crops in an environmentally friendly, synergistic system.

Access to the value of the nutrients in manure has been a primary motivation for constructing swine facilities. However, as the energy cost of swine diets has increased, feeding programs have been dramatically changed. Changes in ingredients composition has changed from manipulations of dietary formulations. These changes can alter the nutrient composition of the resulting manure and thus the nutrient value of the manure as fertilizer. What does not occur is the consideration that owners/users of the manure composition and if changes need to be made in application rates for optimizing fertilizer rates for crops.

  • Maybe it only costs .1 cent per gallon per mile to haul, but if I use up extra time when I could be hauling for another site at 1.5 cents per gallon, I lose opportunity income. If it takes twice as long to haul the same number of gallons, then the income needs to double?

  • Formulating for better utilization of nutrientsNational Center for Manure and Animal Waste Management - Summary Lower dietary CP results in reduce N excretion rangingfrom 28 to 62% The average reduction in N excretion per unit of dietary CPreduction was 8.4% Research has shown that phytase addition will reduce Pexcretion from 25 to 35%. .

  • Range in Value Because ofFeed Formulation• The range from the highest value manureto the lowest is $43.25/1000 gallon• In our model 8.3836 pigs per 1000 gallon• $5.16 difference per pig• About $23,500 on a 2400 hd site
  • Lowest cost haul – field next tobarn leading to potential over-application of nutrients in thatfield, especially P an K• Instead of over application of P and K on afield next to the barn testing veryhigh, transport the manure to a field with lowP and K soil test.• Economically, cost of haul, time is a hugefactor (lost opportunity income from shorthaul jobs)
  • Nutrient dense, higher valuemanure is more likely to betransported to moreenvironmentally friendly fields• For example, if hauling cost is$15/ 1000 gal and it takes twice as long tohaul to a low P and K testing field, thenopportunity cost is $30/1000 gal• Would you be more likely to take extratime to haul a tank worth $85/1000 gal or$42 to a low testing field?
  • The Value of N in Manure• Through diet formulation the value of N inManure can be as low as $19 of N per 1000gal, or 1.9 cents per gallon.• Manure application expense is in the $15/1000gal or 1.5 cent per gallon range• If the farm has 30% water wastage the haulingcost increases 30% (1.5 *130% = 1.95)• Assuming very high P and K (no crop benefit during lifeof the barn), even $900/ton($.55/lb N) anhydrousammonia commercial fertilizer would beeconomically superior to this swine manure
  • Drinkers - water usage/waste
  • Water usage/wastage changesthe manure test• Rule of thumb is 13% dry matter with nowater wastage or wash water.• Typically 6 to 7 % solids for most manuretests• Goal is 10% solids – manure values willincrease
  • Thinking in terms of nutrientyield check in pigs• Base line diet without added DDGS will yield 6.92lb. of N per pig.• Check your N output per pig with the followingformulas:• First, calculate accurate gallons removed per year– cubit feet times 7.5• Divide by total number of pigs on feed for the yearto get gallons per pig• 1000 divided by gallons per pig to get number ofpigs per 1000 gallons• Manure test value (# per 1000 gal) divided bynumber of pigs per 1000 gallon equals lb per pig
  • Take Home Points• Diet formulation will change the nutrient contentand value of manure substantially• Don’t build a swine facility for manure unless youhave influence on diet formulation• Water usage/wastage will change the manure test• Higher manure nutrient content will make it morefeasible to haul to low soil test fields• Manure nutrients are variable and accurate testingis essential• Measure the depth of manure applied per year todetermine the gallons of manure per pig, anddetermine the nutrient yield and value on a per pigor per space basis using the manure test values
