The final day of World Ag Expo 2013! Another beautiful day to complete a beautiful show week. Come see our booth directly across from the Heritage Complex to see a PT-130 and a PT-170 Compost Turner, as well as a WT-1775 Water Trailer. And don't forget the demo of this PT-170 Turner in Visalia this Saturday!

Here's a gem of an article from "Florida Horse" about our customer, Roy S. Lerman, and his farm, Lambholm South, home to 250 plus horses and an abundance of stall waste. Roy says, "“I’m very happy with our composting operation. When it comes to the cost of waste disposal, we’re ahead economically and we’re doing something that has environmental benefits too.” Article begins on page 81: http://issuu.com/floridahorse/docs/junejulyfh

Scott Block is excited about the impact that compost sales could have on his farm's profitability. He now views his feedlot waste differently. “There's not much waste lying around my farm as maybe there was two years ago...If I see a pile of something whether it's dirt, weeds, old hay, I'll find a way to get it out to my windrow because it's worth $80-$100 a ton eventually.”

Scott Block started composting to process waste from his large feedlot operation. News of his compost “spread by word of mouth,” and selling compost is poised to become a huge income-generating element of his farm. Scott even jokes about putting up more barns so he can have more cows just to have more compost-able manure.
