During milking, the cows are moved to the milking house, manure is collected by a bulldozer and transferred to a compost collection site. After 5% chicken manure is added, the manure is dried in a glass house, packed and sold at home centres. Also, the EM treated manure compost is sold to other farmers, and the manure quality is so high that they often run out of stock.
