Bedding Recovery Solutions
Dairy farmers who produce their own bedding save big
Trident Bedding Recovery can be a standalone system or completely integrated in the complex Nutrient Recovery system. One of the unique features of the Trident Nutrient Recovery System is the inclusion of the Trident Bedding System, a process that recycles the large fibre from manure which farmers can use as barn stall bedding.
The Trident Bedding System is unique because it extracts the manure’s large fiber eliminating the fine particles enabling us to produce a truly premium bedding.
This recycled fibre, called “green bedding”, makes an excellent substitute for the wood, straw, oat hulls or other organic material farmers usually purchase from outside suppliers.
The Trident Bedding System combines industry leading design and highest quality components. Stainless steel platforms, railings and maintenance provisions are standard. The automations package is set up for the specific conditions on the farm and ensures efficient manure treatment around the clock.
Recycling fiber as bedding represents a significant cost savings for farmers and a big contributor to the ROI of the nutrient recovery system. The past few years, purchase of premium bedding has risen steadily, causing many farmers to either re-bed less often or look for cheaper material alternatives. This often has detrimental affects on cow health and cow comfort which can reduce milk production.
Manufacturing bedding from manure provides enough bedding material to allow farmers to bed deep and bed often, a key component to keeping cows healthy, comfortable and productive.
The Trident bedding recovery process provides dairy farmers with safe, high-quality, low cost bedding manufactured from recycled manure. Our system is designed to focus on 2 key steps during the manure handling:
a) Conditioning and thickening
b) Dehydrating and drying
The Trident bedding system produces safe high quality bedding at a fraction of the cost of the enormous Drum Composting systems. Low life-cycle costs coupled with reduced operating costs make this high-quality system cost effective.
